Mountain chef Peter Hughes, who spends his winters cooking for guests at Revelstoke's Bighorn Lodge, dishes his favorite mountain energy food.
I’m afraid I can’t take full credit for the idea of sushi burritos, that honor goes to one of my chef idols, David Chang of Momofuku fame in New York. I will however try and take a little credit for transforming them into a heliski picnic lunch or afternoon tea snack after a big day in the deep stuff. When out there in the Boondocks served with a hot thermos of Jenmai Miso, with silken tofu and kombu strips, it is a pure energy brick. Scale it up for a great dinner party dish by providing saki bombs and plum wine!
This Colorado resort's ever-growing restaurant scene makes return visits worthwhile—and delicious.
Leonora, Vail Village
The space may look the same, but the menu, and more importantly, the experience, is vastly different. Reopening in December in what used to be Block 16 inside Vail’s Sebastian Hotel, Leonora, name after artist Leonora Carrington who created many of original sculptures found throughout the hotel, is a wonderful surprise.
