First, it was the wineries and vintners across the state who elevated Idaho’s standing in the nation’s food and drink scene. Then came the craft brewers, who with their use of local hops and creativity, have not just won national acclaim for their IPAs and barrel aged stouts, but have added to the culture and lifestyle in an around Boise.


It’s safe to say that the Boise food scene is taking a similar glide path. Homegrown chefs and restauranteurs are challenging the way we eat and think about food. Chefs who honed their talents in kitchens across the country are moving here, opening restaurants, reinventing themselves and providing new and diverse dining options. From farm-to-table to the varied taco landscape to finer dining experiences, Boise’s culinary scene is undergoing a fun, intriguing and delicious transformation.


So, join us as City Club hosts a special forum on the food scene, how we got here, what the future holds for Treasure Valley restaurants, menus and tastes.



Longtime food journalist Guy Hand, Petit 4 and Bleubird chef and owner Sarah Kelly, former State & Lemp chef Kris Komori (also a Beard nominee), and Bittercreek Red Feather El Diablo & Sons owner Dave Krick.
