Mudbug Madness
There are few things I enjoy more than a big Cajun-style crawfish (aka "mudbug") boil. If you feel the same, you won't want to miss the Cajun Seafood Boil at Snowbasin Resort Aug. 29—part of its ongoing Dining Discovery culinary series. The family-style dinner will take place starting at 6:30 p.m. in Needles Lodge. Guests will enjoy a gondola ride to the lodge and be greeted with a signature Hurricane cocktail (non-alcoholic on request) and a live zydeco band. The cost is $59 per person for all-you-eat crawfish, shrimp, lobster tails, boiled potatoes, corn on the cob, cheddar cornbread, red beans and rice, okra Creole, steamed asparagus, Creole roasted potatoes, plus a selection of desserts including mud cake and peach cobbler. For reservations, phone 801-620-1021 or visit

Winos for Rhinos
Due largely to poaching throughout Africa and Asia for the use of rhinoceros horn in traditional Chinese medicines, rhino populations there have reached crisis points. To help fight the war against poaching and to support conservation and habitats, Utah's Hogle Zoo (2600 E. Sunnyside Ave.) and The Leonardo (209 E. 500 South) will host a Winos for Rhinos fundraiser on Saturday, Oct. 3, from 6-10 p.m. at The Leonardo. The unique benefit is a tapas and wine-tasting evening that also includes an art and wildlife photography show and auction. Chef Zanetta Jones of The Salt Bistro will prepare small-bite food pairings featuring organic and local ingredients to enjoy, while attendees sample wines from around the globe at five wine-tasting stations. There will also be a drawing to win a trip to Zimbabwe. Garden-party attire or "safari chic" is suggested. Tickets are $75 in advance or $85 at the door. To purchase tickets, visit

Utah Chef in Art Culinaire
Bowman Brown—chef/owner of Forage—is featured on the cover and in a gorgeous photo spread of the current [issue 115] high-end Art Culinaire hardback quarterly magazine. He joins the likes of Wolfgang Puck, Ming Tsai, Daniel Boulud and Jean-Georges Vongerichten as cover subjects. Congrats, Bowman! See the cover at
