So, this week I have spent some wonderful time with wonderful people at a beautiful back country lodge. If you are a skier or snowboarder and have ski toured before here is the place to be. I came up here never laying eyes on the place, someone else did my shopping, and did not find the menu for the shopping that was done. So I unleashed my creative juices, to use the food that was given to me and make it last for a week with out compromising my standards and love for cooking. Making it happen!!! Did I miss my favorite ingredients, spices, herbs, meat cuts.....of course but the challenge of just making it up as I go has been a highlight of my winter and a great week!!! Oh yeah we have also had over 100cm of snow this week which has also made for some amazing skiing!!!
Unfortunately, I did forget my camera!! So I will soon have some pictures from the guests. Until then here is the menu I prepared and I will post the menu that I was supposed to do!! I love to cook!!!
