Looking back over the trips we took in 2014 I have to say that Jackson Hole Wyoming exceeded all of our expectations! The people were friendly, the scenery was breathtaking, the hotel accommodations were spectacular. But the food was the big surprise...
Jackson Hole Wyoming was an unexpected food lovers paradise…When we arrived in Jackson Hole, our room wasn’t quite ready so we stopped into the W0rt Hotel’s bar for an appetizer. We ordered a burger and some fries…a Kobe burger and Portobello fries. The fries were the surprise…Tempura fried, tossed in truffle oil, red pepper flakes, Parmigiano Reggiano and fresh parsley.
After we finished this surprisingly delicious afternoon snack we decided to walk down to Persephone Bakery and pick up the anniversary cake I pre-ordered before we arrived in Jackson Hole. It was a delicious 6 layer red velvet cake covered in cream cheese icing…just like the one we had at our wedding reception 25 years ago.
We were blown away by the quality of the food we experienced in Jackson Hole. Even breakfast in our room was one for the books. The rooms at the Wort Hotel are beautifully appointed. The attention to detail and the finer touches that surround you with the feeling of true Western Hospitality could make cold cereal seem like a foodies’ dream come true.
Our anniversary dinner was a special treat. We were seated at the Chef’s Table at the Wild Sage Restaurant. The place was really small, only a few tables so taking pictures of our food felt a little awkward. But I did manage to snap a pic of the Chef’s in action and the dessert the Chef sent to our table.
One of the last meals we enjoyed while in Jackson Hole was at Snake River Grill…the highlight of that meal was the Bacon wrapped Chorizo Stuffed Dates. It’s been 10 months since we ate at SRG and I am still dreaming about that appetizer…I have even attempted to recreate it for friends.
Of course Jackson Hole has it’s fair share of places that offer pastries, ice cream, coffee and breads. But just across the street from our hotel was a very special chocolate shoppe. Atelier Ortega’s Coco Love…offered a selection of chocolates that were the perfectly sweet ending to an incredible vacation.
Jackson Hole, Wyoming is a foodies’ paradise. Getting there may be a bit of a challenge, but once you’re there you will be hard pressed to decide where to eat first…we were there for 5 days and ate out every single meal and didn’t scratch the surface of all the incredible places there are to choose from in and around town. Now we know that Jackson Hole offers everything you could want in a vacation destination!
