The Garage on Beck: Salt Lake City

The Garage on Beck: Salt Lake City.  Located in north Salt Lake amongst some refineries with a back patio looking out over an industrial district.  Can’t really get better than that photographically and atmospherically.  Story behind the place is it used to be a small garage where all the factory workers would go after work to get […]

Tomato Chutney Jam (A Perfect Marriage)

There are two recent loves in my life: tomato jam and tomato chutney.  The jam being more sweet and the chutney being more sour and better for relishes to accompany many dishes.  So I’ve been thinking, why not combine the two into an all-in-one glorious jar?  Perfect for over toast, paired with cheeses, or on […]

Fall Tart

First somewhat legitimate snow today, but I still decided to make a fall tart.  Because, honestly, who doesn’t love everything about fall from the food to the weather.  The toppings of this tart include bacon, apples, gouda cheese, caramelized onions, and spinach.   Would have been great with the addition of mushrooms.  Perhaps even a nut of sorts.. like walnuts?
