Fish and Feast
Challenge your rod and reel. Reward your knife and fork.
with Chef Jason French and Chef Chris Pandel
Only at The Resort at Paws Up can you fly-fish Montana’s legendary Blackfoot River with the chefs who’ll be making your spectacular evening meal. Because after the local cutts and bows try to gorge on flies tossed by Chef Jason French and Chef Chris Pandel, Fish and Feast attendees will be the ones stuffing themselves with gourmet cuisine prepared by the chef fishermen.
French makes his living crafting the wood-fired dishes he mastered after years in front of the open-flame at his Portland restaurant cum gathering spot, Ned Ludd. Fishing alongside him for the weekend will be Chicago’s Chef Chris Pandel. He’s opened and successfully run restaurants all across his city, from Bucktown to the West Loop. His latest culinary sensations, Swift & Sons and Cold Storage, are both rooted in classic French techniques featuring local Midwestern ingredients. But on this weekend, Pandel will be equally concerned with his dry-fly selections.
Wash down our guest chefs’ tasty concoctions with Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir from featured vintner Lange Estate. Note how their label features a trout-fishing fly, with different species appearing on the various varietals’ labels.
