In addition, High West Distillery and Alpine Distilling will feature the spirit component of the events.

“We are incredibly thrilled at the opportunity to bring Park City’s exceptional culinary talents to Platform by the James Beard Foundation next fall,” Park City Area Restaurant Association executive director Ginger Wicks said. “Congratulations to our PCARA members who have been chosen to showcase their creativity and expertise, while representing our esteemed culinary community.”

Events at Platform by the James Beard Foundation will be made possible by funds received from a Summit County Restaurant Tax Grant. Sixteen PCARA members submitted applications, and a selection committee consisting of PCARA Board Members and representatives of the Park City Chamber Bureau, Summit County Tax Grant, and the Utah Office of Tourism assisted in choosing the winners. 

Located in the brand-new Market 57 food hall, Platform by the James Beard Foundation is a state-of-the-art show kitchen and educational space for outstanding culinary arts programming. Alongside Good To Go by JBF, a unique food kiosk where innovation meets sustainable, ethically sourced, delicious food in a rotating fast-casual menu, both entities are the physical manifestation of the Beard Foundation’s Good Food for Good® mission.
