Montana Master Chefs 2009

Montana Master Chefs is always a highlight of the year and 2009 was no exception.  This year’s winery lineup was one of the best ever with Frog’s Leap Winery, Joseph Phelps Vineyards and Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars.  We enjoyed some of the finest wines from Napa Valley right in the heart of the Blackfoot River Valley.  Our chef line up was equally as impressive with Kent Rathbun, Executive Chef/Proprietor of Abacus and Jasper’s Restaurants in Dallas; the last two seasons Top Chef winners, Stephanie Izard and Hosea Rosenberg; and our very own resort chef, Wes Coffel.   It was a weekend filled with the finest things in life: fine food, great wine, friends, family, fun and all with a sense of adventure.   If you didn’t get a chance to join us this year, go to www.montanamasterchefs.com to see what you missed and mark your calendars for 2010 (September 30-October 3, 2010).

Travel is my business and joy. In an effort to keep you abreast of unique possibilities that you might find interesting, I am writing to you with my thoughts on my most recent trip.  The Resort at Paws Up in Montana is an easily reachable destination.  The privately owned resort sits on a mere 37,000 acres with a selection of accommodations ranging from luxury tents to huge 3-bedroom homes that could comfortably sleep 8 people.  The Resort focuses on wide open spaces and activities for the guests.  My personal activities included clay shooting, river rafting, a romp on the ATVs culminated by my leap of faith off the side of the mountain. Rappelling may not be for everyone, but it sure was exciting.  Check out this clip of my rappel.

Happy Travels!
