Salt Lake Magazine Dining Awards 2010


The Salt Lake Magazine Annual Dining Awards 2010
Salt Lake magazine presented its 12th Annual Dining Awards to Utah restaurants on Tuesday, February 23. Chefs and restaurateurs from throughout the state attended the gala awards event, held at Utah Museum of Fine Arts. A celebration of Utah food and flavors, the evening’s menu was conceived and prepared by Cuisine Unlimited, with wines from Southern Wine & Spirits and Libation. Executive and dining editor Mary Brown Malouf and her panel of judges gave 40 awards to chefs, restaurants and food professionals.

“This was a very rich year in terms of Utah restaurants,” said Salt Lake magazine executive and dining editor Mary Brown Malouf. “There were so many new and exciting restaurants to consider.” The full story of the Dining Awards, with details about the restaurants and chefs, will be the cover story of the March/April issue of Salt Lake magazine, available on newsstands later this week. In honor of the magazine’s 20th anniversary, the article also takes a look at previous winners.

I am a writer, artist, gardener, obsessed cook/baker and recipe lover. I spend my time finding new ways to enjoy my life and try to encourage everyone around me to do the same. I like creating a cozy, warm, comforting and inviting atmosphere and hope to share some of that here. Hopefully, I get to learn from others who share my interests too.
