Food and Drink at Star Valley Lodge!

 In Star Valley News

Summer is a special time in Star Valley. The valley becomes an amazing green color, wildflowers are in full bloom and everywhere is bustling with activity. There’s plenty of adventure in our area of Bedford and beyond, so if you’re curious as to what types of outdoor activities we have in our area — click to our Activities page for more information. Take time to connect with nature and bond with your companions… Summer is the perfect time to come enjoy the Star Valley area to the fullest!

After a long day of outdoor activities in Wyoming, it’s also wonderful to take time to relax at the Lodge, watch the beautiful sunset over the Salt River Mountain Range and enjoy a cocktail with dinner. Maggie Pallan, who is the Owner of Artisan Chef, LLC, came to the Lodge recently to serve dinner and cocktails to the Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce for a corporate retreat. The food she prepared was magnificent! Here is a sampling of her menu…

Grilled Watermelon, Roasted Tomato, Pistachio, and Feta Salad over Baby Arugula with 10 Year Aged Balsamic.

Charcoal Grilled Prime New York Steak with Handmade Worcestershire over Yukon Gold, Super Sweet Grilled White Corn and Black Pepper Bacon Risotto

Fresh Made Ricotta Doughnuts with Chocolate Ganache, Local Raspberry Sauce, and Honey-Almond Crème Anglaise

In addition, Chef Maggie also made the most delightful Blackberry Sage Margaritas! We found this drink recipe to be so different and wonderful, we asked her if we could share this item with you here. If you are dreaming of Wyoming in summer, all you need to do is whip up a batch of these delicious margaritas, sip and enjoy! #ThatsWY
