Behind the Scenes

Chef Gregory Gourdet reviews  at post.venue.name
"Thank you @thewilliegmcbride for the life changing adventure. It took 4 years for this trip to finally happen and while it was a training session for my 100 miler later this year one cannot deny the power and majesty of the Grand Canyon. We ran up and down that amazing wonder 3 days in a row in 97 degree heat. And while the last few miles of our final climb back up tested all of me I miss it and all it's teeth. Til next year. Thank you for the fuel @trailbutter. Thank you for the shoes @hokaoneone. Both were vital to perseverance. #wyeastwolfpack #getafterit #kitchentocanyon17 🙏🏾"

"I ate this on a winter date with my wife, CJ; it felt like summer in the garden, tasted like fun, and we had a blast! Chef Gregory Gourdet specializes in vegetarian cuisine, and this is one of his standouts, with the contrasting textures and flavors of carrots, avocado, pickled cucumbers, and sourdough croutons."
