Menu Ideas

Menus are not set in stone and can be accommodated to your liking


….thanking you for all you did to make our trip to Snowbird, so much fun. For me it was a great treat to be able to enjoy our guests for a few days and not have to worry about feeding them. Cooking is great sport, but cooking well is a real art and I put mediumRARE in the latter category. Amy has great imagination and good follow through. Barry and I were fully occupied taking care of our guests, most of whom had never been in Utah. Thankfully, because of mediumRARE, I did not have to worry about any details.  Menu selections were well thought out and appealed to all. Thank you for being so attentive and making our weekend so special.

From our first contact with mediumRARE we were impressed.  They instill confidence through their attention to detail and showed tremendous flexibility with our “high maintenance” group (food allergies, picky eaters and frequent menu/headcount changes).  The meals were fantastic; Amy and staff arrived and had food plated on time, was perfectly prepared and the kitchen was left cleaner than how they received it.  A perfect addition to our vacation, we hope to include Amy and

mediumRARE in our plans!

The Wasatch Mountains in Utah held Amy captive from when she was a mere babe. She sought to escape to other places to seek her fortune and brave adventure. Many years later she returned to her beloved mountains to ski and make merry with her friends and family. Good to be home (even in the sweltering heat of the summer months) Amy embarked on an entrepreneurial adventure of the culinary kind. 

Amy’s cooking experience is beyond imagination. Her knack for seeking out unique culinary adventures has led her to the far reaches of the West. Heli-skiing in British Columbia, river running in Idaho, hiking in Colorado and mountain biking in the Southern Utah desert. She has been a private chef for professional athletes, famous actors, illustrious politicians, and rock and rollers.

Studying Japanese cuisine under sushi masters, slinging hash with big city chefs and having a superb instinct for fine food, Amy’s schooling in the culinary arts goes outside tradition.

In her spare time, she enjoys skiing powder, bicycle riding, traveling the world, downward dog and photography. She strives to become a ukulele master and write stories of her frothy experiences.

She lives with her cute little dog Pyka, in Sandy, Utah.
