Pigs and Pinot — It’s hot down in the Valley, eh? Here’s a plan: get out! This weekend, on Saturday, Aug. 4, Solitude Mountain Resort is serving up its annual Wasatch Mountain Table Dinner with the porcine theme of “Pigs and Pinot.”

We assume that means pork is on the menu and Solitude isn’t calling us pigs.

Alliterative name calling aside, the mountain table series is, forgive me, super rad. Solitude’s laconic chef de cuisine Andrew Fletcher whips his crew into a frenzy to produce a scrumptious meal, served at altitude on the banks of Big Cottonwood Creek. Things get started with an appetizer reception, like so.

This is me pigging out on crudités last year.

Afterwards there’s a five-course dinner, served at communal tables, with a focus on pork (see I was right!) and wine pairings featuring French Burgundies from Maison Louis Jadot and California pinots from Domiane Carneros and Cake Bread Cellars.

That’s the pinot part.

Or just stay down in the valley and swelter. Here’s our dining guide so you can pick a restaurant.
