|Chef Rost’s latest book coming out this fall!|
Chef Rost had time for even her youngest of admirers, always greeting diners and fans with a smile. Everyone left her booth smiling from both her kindness and delicious, satisfying cuisine.
Talented culinary program student (CMC Breckenridge campus), Jen Schilling, joined ‘team Rost’ to dish up hundreds of servings of Chef Rost’s small plate.
Randy Rost, Christy’s talented and gentlemanly husband joined the effort as the ‘grill chief’, grilling the bison to perfection.
Chef Mark Denittis served a selection of his Il Mondo Vecchio salumi along with CaDonini Montepluciano. One has not tasted true salumi or dry cured meat until you’ve sampled his meat. It’s buttery, smooth and full of flavor.
Chef Richard Sandoval served Pork Carnitas mini Tostadas with Pineapple Cilantro Margaritas.
Mariposa Glass Designs from Ft. Collins had an eye catching booth of lively fused glass food-safe art plates and platters. The designs were original with a regional nod and something for everyone. Based on the number of shoppers (and buyers) during my stop in I’m not alone in my thinking.
When I stumbled upon the Mountain Greenery Plantscapes booth I was smitten by the miniature fairy gardens, organic exotic containers with aspen tree seedlings and the entire essence their plant and garden display conveyed. As beguiling as their wares were so were the women of the business. A local business in Basalt Colorado, they span the gamut of selling bedding plants, consultation/execution of all stages design-through-installation of any indoor and outdoor plant needs. They were completely charming as were their creations. I plan to make a stop on my next trip to the area. You should too!
