2023 January-February

In Salt Lake magazine’s first issue of 2023, we asked six local chefs and restaurateurs “what do you think of when you think of comfort food?” They prepared for us their quintessential comfort meal, and the results are unexpected, varied and delicious. It’s the first feature in our new 2023 Food Spotlight Series.

Also in this issue, the Wasatch Range is more than the backdrop to Northern Utah, it’s the heart and soul. Salt Lake magazine curates the best our mountains have to offer in the winter. It also shares how some of our favorite peaks, ski runs and trails got their strange names. And, we reflect on the making of a little movie called The Sandlot, which was filmed in Utah, 30 years after its release. Learn how the coming-of-age story came to be and the secret of its staying power. After all, “legends never die.”

In the first Park City Life of the new year, Park City always seems to be mid-transformation. How the Sundance Film Festival has had to remake itself to survive and thrive during/after the pandemic and what the future holds for a new resort in the Wasatch Back. Salt Lake magazine food editor Lydia Martinez introduces readers to the guys behind Old Cuss Café, who have unlocked the secret of making vegan food for non-vegans. And, Bar Fly explores one-of-a-kind spirits and elixirs crafted right here in Utah.
