Episode 51: Utah’s OTHER Waterpocket

Standard

This weeks episode should be titled, “Living out of a suitcase makes you weird…”

This week we we got an awesome insight into Alan Scott, one of the co-founders of Utah’s NEWEST up and coming distillery, WaterPocket! He also brought us some of their whiskey! Which we are always grateful for.

WaterPocket Distillery has been distilling since February but they are getting ready to have their grand opening June 2nd in West Valley Utah! That means they will be ready to sell out of their production shop. You know, laws and things like that that has to be done so you can officially open. WaterPocket Distillery is what happens when you get the drive and experience of one man (Alan) and the genius and background of one woman (Julia) and they put their heads together.  Why the name WaterPocket you ask? Well, you’ll just have to listen! Yes, there are other distilleries in Utah, so what makes them unique? They will be producing a couple of regular spirits, but they will also be curating their own liqueurs. That is HUGE because there is no other liqueur producer in Utah doing that! We are intrigued and very excited and cannot wait to go visit. This looks like a long and happy relationship between the New Utah Podcast and WaterPocket Distillery. You can follow their journey on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram!

Take a listen and let us know what you think of distillery number 13 in Utah!

Episode 50: Utah’s Own RubySnap. You KNOW you want her cookies!

Standard

The Big 5-0. No one even got any gold…. We feel cheated. Good news is, Jeremy’s bees are thriving and Chris & Bre have been planting/cleaning. Does anyone need a basket?

The New Utah was fortunate to be joined this week by none other than cookie maven, Tami Steggell. Owner and innovator behind those cookies you can’t get enough of, Utah’s very own, RubySnap! Listen to Tami’s journey from architect designer to cookie architect! We chatted about how she has stayed true to herself and her brand, and her vision for offering a memorable experience for every person that steps into her doors. Her cookies have and will continue to travel the world.

Without giving the WHOLE episode away, Tami gives us a history of why the pin-up girls and why the WWII facade is important to her. Each cookie is named after a friend, family member, or guest that has visited her store. Tami also talks with us on the importance of building relationships in the Utah community.  She may even be cool enough to tell us HER personal favorite!

If you ever wanted to know how much butter is used in a year… she knows! Find them at 770 S 300 W in Salt Lake City or in local Harmons stores. Also on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram!

RubySnap IS the epitome of Utah’s Own.

Episode 19: Gin, you bastard child…

Standard

Wow, 19! That means we are legal to vote… and buy cigars!! But mostly to vote. Speaking of voting, we are less than a month away from the vote. Make sure you are learning about your local candidates, including Misty K. Snow who is up against kid hater, Mike Lee! (yea, read more about Flint, Michigan)

This week, we celebrated the University of Utah Health Care #1 national ranking, as an academic, hospital with Josh who is very proud to be working for them!

Also, please don’t shoot the clowns. A Nation wide epidemic of scary clowns seems to be eeking their way to Utah. The police department says, don’t shoot! Perhaps you can just direct them to Utah’s #1 haunt, the Asylum 49 in Tooele?

All events this week  fall on Saturday, so choose wisely! The Harvest Festival at our friends at Petersen Farms, the nations largest Gluten Free Expo at the Southtowne Expo (not sure what that says about Utah’s Gluten health), and a kids trick or treat event at Crones Hollow.

Chris Barlow, of Beehive Distilling, joined us this week to talk about Gin. Did you know the ingredients of Gin are medicinal? We love a good education and can’t wait to visit the distillery for an educational tour and to try their barrel reserve! (especially since we are whiskey drinkers at heart) You can find Beehive distilling products at over 120 restaurants in Utah. So, make sure to ask for it and support local!

Ep. 10 Stalking Kitchen Eighty Eight and dirty whore mouths.

Standard

Episode 10 is in your face, unlike a stalker waiting around the corner for you… That was creepy a little creepy, huh. Sound quality issues aside… we had a great show!

We were excited to have Brandon Clark, the owner of the SUPER delicious and fresh Kitchen Eighty-Eight food truck. It was great hearing his back story, his passion for food and what he is doing with that passion, going to school at the CIA (that’s the prestigious Culinary Institute of America) although it is fun to just say “CIA.” If you are in the in Utah County area, check out Brandon’s fresh and perfectly cooked meat and potato offerings. Find out where he will be on Instagram @kitcheneightyeight or Facebook Kitchen Eighty Eight

The UFC® fights are punching and kicking their way to Utah for the first time! With 12 fights and one local fighter, Court McGee, it looks to be a great round of fights. Despite what the guys say about being a lack lustre fight card… let’s be honest, anyone who is brave enough to get their ribs kicked and their face punched is a great fight card!

UFC Fight Mcgee Utah

This weekend is the Taste of the Wasatch at Solitude Ski resort. Tickets are $105 and the event will feature 50 Utah chefs! That alone is worth the price, but to add to the awesomeness 100% of the money will go to fight Utah hunger.
