Bites and Beverages

7:00 P.M. – 8:30 P.M.

An evening event: Bites and Beverages! A farm inspired appetizer cook-off with several Utah chefs.

Each chef will be challenged with ingredients from local farms and ranches to prepare a bite for you. We are so excited to have Policy Kings, our local small batch brewery, serving a Hefeweisen a German wheat stule beer, and kombucha from Red Acre Farm.

Pastured raised Buffalo from Zion Mountain Ranch and varieties of heirloom squash from Utah farms will be the base for these mouth-watering appetizers. 

Guest will vote for the one they liked the best!
