How To Steam Fish with Great Flavor by Park City Culinary Institute


Food and wine lovers,

Wine Coordinator Peri Ermidis and The Shallow Shaft Restaurant in Alta, Utah are pleased to welcome back wine maker Jon Grant of Couloir and Straight Line Wines. A close friend of the restaurant, Jon returns with several vintages near and dear to his heart and our wine list! Jon specializes in handcrafted, vineyard designated Pinot Noir with a singular sense of place and time. The winemaking is deliberately minimalist; the intention is to support the wines while they convey their unique place of origin, vintage and variety.

A former wine store manager at Snowbird Ski Resort, Jon’s passion for mountaineering and skiing brought him all over the world. Before starting his own labels he worked in the cellars of many of Napa Valley’s top wineries, including Turley Wine Cellars, PlumpJack Winery, Corison Wines and Robert Mondavi Winery.

Chef Kurtis Krause will be offering a five course meal designed to showcase Jon’s variety of Pinot Noirs. In addition to three distinct Pinot Noirs, we’ll be pouring his Straight Line Tempranillo and Sauvignon Blanc. Please see the attached menu for all the details.

Jon will be on hand to introduce each wine and answer any questions. Dinner starts at 6:30pm on Wednesday, February 25th. Cost is $95 per person ($45 for food, $50 for wine pairings), with additional glass pours available.



Winner of Salt Lake Magazine’s “Best Wine List” in 2011, The Shallow Shaft is Alta’s only independent, fine dining restaurant. Overlooking the Town of Alta and Alta Ski Resort, our dining room offers stunning views of the Central Wasatch. Chef Kurtis Krause, formerly of The Metropolitan, offers a regional cuisine celebrating Utah’s abundance of quality products. Influenced by the unique flavors of Asian cuisine, our New American fare is both adventurous and comforting.

Please respond with any questions, we’d love to see you join us for this special event!

The contact is: Andrew Walter, General Manager

We occasionally offer short classes, but it’s hard to learn how to cook from a three hour program. You might learn how to make a certain dish, but that won’t necessarily give you the tools you need to create your own dishes. Our program is designed to very quickly teach you everything you need to know, so you can make anything you want to make… even things you didn’t think you could make. It takes time to learn how to work with meat without a recipe, what to do to bring out flavors in sauces, to get faster using your knives, build the natural flavors from vegetables and fruit. We meet four days a week, from 9am to 3pm. By the time you’re done, you no longer need recipes except maybe for inspiration. If you just want a few hours, you can sit in on one of our classes for $50. But those visits are just a taste of what a two-month immersion program can give you.
