For many, images of freshly powdered slopes and the Hollywood buzz around the Sundance Film Festival are conjured when the city of Park City, Utah comes to mind. However, playing a complimentary supporting role to the city's vibrancy is the spirited restaurant scene that unlocks the secrets to expertly using wild game in a variety of styles and dishes.
In this episode of Taste the Details, we travel to picturesque Park City and its pristine surroundings to experience the many ways chefs in the area are serving up wild game meat. For those unfamiliar, wild game is defined as any animal that's hunted for its meat or for sport. Given such a broad definition, such meat can include wild boar, elk, bison, venison, and duck; all of which are given the utmost culinary respect by numerous restaurants in the city.
So imagine skillfully prepared dishes such as wild boar chops, buffalo skirt steak, and even duck enchiladas. Such a common thread of using wild game within Park City's dining scene is noteworthy in itself, given the rarity of seeing the unusual meat on many menus nationwide.
The dining experience is one to behold for all foodies, where one can attest to the brilliance of perfectly medium rare elk loin that's enhanced with delectable local ingredients.
