Greenough, Montana – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine
Barbeque is going luxe at The Resort at Paws Up, Montana’s choice luxury resort for country-loving jet setters. The 37,000-acre property will be introducing Top Chef contestants, master grillers and local artisans to guests of its luxury homes and glamping tents all summer long.
Gourmand travelers can start licking their chops this Memorial Day weekend, at the debut of the resort’s Montana Master Grillers all-inclusive culinary experience. For four days and three nights, indulge in daily meals paired with fine wines, spirits and beers again lush wilderness backdrops. Your personal flamer-chefs include 610 Magnolia’s Ed Lee and Sweet Cheeks’ Tiffani Faison, both of whom grilled with gusto on Bravo TV’s beloved cooking show. After enjoying intimate one-on-ones with famed smokologists and distillers, retire to canvas tents with ensuite bathrooms and spacious decks. In the morning, wake up to a gourmet breakfast personally prepared by your very own camping butler.
This event acts as a complement to the annual Montana Master Chefs culinary event in September, a four-day gastronomic spectacle of five-course dinners and top libations from beloved vintners. Star chefs include Top Chef winner Hosea Rosenberg and the resort’s own Adam Cooke, who’s nabbed accolades from the likes of the James Beard Foundation. Champagne welcome reception and “quick fire” demos aside, the weekend also features a host of adventure offerings like fly fishing, mushroom foraging and cattle driving. For a special treat, opt for the hot air balloon add-on before a muscle-melting spa treatment in the woods.
Finally, between these two exclusive weekend experiences, the Montana Long Table program is a complimentary one-night adventure for guests staying at the resort on July 21. Take a long table seat in a lush grazing pasture for a taste of the ultimate nature getaway—and of the region’s rich flavors. Catered by local ranchers and farmers, who will be on-site to mingle with the guests, this evening is a true farm-to-table, once-in-a-lifetime foodie must.
Montana Master Grillers starts from $4,338 for two; Montana Master Chefs from $4,323. For more information, please visit www.pawsup.com.
