With the opening of Utah's ski resorts, executive chef Nathan Powers of Bambara (202 Main St. in Salt Lake City) has created a "Snowstorm" lunch special to benefit the Utah Avalanche Center.
The Utah Avalanche Center provides the daily advisories to help make educated decisions in the backcountry. Throughout the entire month of December, for each three-course lunch special purchased, Bambara will donate one dollar to the center.
The daily three-course lunch special, priced at $13, includes a choice of organic greens or cup of the daily soup selection, one of three entrée selections and one of chef Powers’ special house-made warm, gooey chocolate chip cookies. Entrée choices are a house-ground 9 oz. burger, a smoked turkey wrap or the special of the day.
“The Utah Avalanche Center is integral to our safety as it provides critical avalanche and mountain weather information to help people make life-and-death decisions in the backcountry. The goal of the organization has been to keep people on top of the Greatest Snow on Earth® instead of being buried beneath it,” said Chef Powers. "I love Utah for the unsurpassed mountain recreation here. As residents and business operators, I think it’s important that we give back and support the organizations that help us to safely enjoy the luxuries of winter sports.”
