The series encourages guests to step out of their culinary comfort zone, amidst the comfortable environment of Snowbasin.” Each week one of Snowbasin’s award-winning chefs will develop the menu and be present in the Cinnabar to answer questions and educate guests about the cooking methods and ingredients.
