Montana Master Chefs: The South

Taste the soul of the South in the heart of the West.

September 24–27, 2020
For Montana Master Chefs 2020, we’re celebrating a region that artfully combines storied culinary traditions with boundary-pushing innovations. All-star chefs from hotbed cities across the South will meet up at The Resort at Paws Up to collaborate on the most inventive, mouthwatering gourmet meals this side of the Mississippi. It’s cuisine you won’t find anywhere else, and it all takes place in a setting like no other—the sprawling, adventurous landscape of Montana. Take your pick from an endless array of outdoor activities, from horseback riding and clay shooting to ATV tours and mountainside rappelling. Delicious spirits, live musical performances and luxe accommodations serve as the perfect dessert. Join us out in the American West for an unforgettable taste of the Southern way of life.

...exploring passions (and maybe finding a few new ones) is really what the Montana Master Chefs event is all about. Over the span of four days, I’d gotten the chance to savor unbelievable food, relax by the fire with a good book, taste wine well outside...
