Picture this for an authentic Montana ranch-to-table dinner: the freshest flavors of the Blackfoot River Valley, sourced from local and regional purveyors and served up on the lawn of a working cattle ranch. You’ll be dining where elk roam and the mountains loom at these events. Come sit down to a meal crafted by Paws Up Executive Chef Sunny Jin, where you’ll enjoy food and drink from local growers, ranchers and beverage crafters. Adding to the local flavor will be a farmers market, featuring tasty bites and sips such as artisanal baked goods, local fruits and veggies, handmade desserts and specialty beverages. Chef Caroline Doern of Bozeman’s well-loved Feast Raw Bar & Bistro along with Chef Kacey Gardipee, head chef of Missoula’s The Depot steakhouse, will join Jin as Paws Up’s special guest chefs for the June event.
You’ll also get a chance to peruse the creations of local artisans, from artwork to jewelry and other handiworks. These events provide a great chance to fall in love with what makes Montana great: the cuisine, the art and, most of all, the people.
