The Gateway Winter Farmers Market
Here’s a friendly reminder that the Downtown Winter Farmers Market takes place every Saturday from 10 am to 2 pm through April 20, 2024, hosted by The Gateway at 110 S. Rio Grande Street. The Downtown Farmers market exists to strengthen and support small local farms as they bring their products directly to the public.
According to the organizers, “Urban Food Connections of Utah is committed to helping our community connect with and support local food producers year-round. Our Winter Market at The Gateway features local produce, meat, eggs, cheese, baked goods, sauces, condiments, chocolate, art and crafts, and much more.”
Please note that the Downtown Winter Farmers Market will not operate on December 23 and December 30.
The Lodge at Blue Sky Omakase Experience
Chef Kyle and Katina Connaughton of Singlehread have announced their second annual residency at The Lodge at Blue Sky, Auberge Resorts Collection, named ‘Title Page.’ The limited engagement will run from January 18th-28th in conjunction with Park City’s Sundance Film Festival, offering an exclusive omakase style experience with two seatings each night, at just 14 guests per seating.
For two weeks in January 2024, SingleThread will launch an experiential “trailer” welcoming guests into their experimental test kitchen to go deeper into the creative process of what comes together to build a new idea through film. As guests savor their opening bites, they’ll be presented with a cinematic window into the ‘why’ giving viewers the first look and taste into the genesis of an idea. The short film, directed by filmmaker Justin Taylor Smith, tells the nuanced stories of the farmers, growers and purveyors who lovingly cultivate the ingredients which appear on the plate, from the inspiration to the concepting, to the research and development. When presented with each subsequent course, diners will have forged a deeper understanding of, and appreciation for, the passion and artistry that has gone into producing each ingredient, and building something from the ground up.
“We are thrilled to once again welcome Chef Kyle and Katina to The Lodge at Blue Sky,” said Joe Ogdie, General Manager, The Lodge at Blue Sky, Auberge Resorts Collection. “We now know that this collaboration truly makes magic, and we look forward to offering our guests an evening that transcends a typical culinary pop-up experience.”
We are excited to return to the beautiful Blue Sky property to collaborate with our good friends for this project. For us this is an incredible opportunity to try something completely new, an idea that has been swirling in our heads for the past several years. We are going to get some of these ideas off the page and in front of guests to include them in the creative conversation of what we are developing.” -Kyle Connaughton, Chef and Owner of SingleThread.
Reservations will open on December 5th and can be booked through SingleThread or through The Lodge at Blue Sky’s website for a dinner and room package. Only 14 seats are available per seating with two seatings each evening. Dinner starts at $400++ per person and $400++ per person for wine pairings.
