It has been an amazing month of fabulous articles, videos, and accolades for Rupert’s – and we couldn’t be more honored to be recognized. Here is an overview of some great Rupert’s mentions this month including the Idaho Wine Commission’s newsletter, “The Dirt,” AAA’s Via Magazine, and the Byway Bites video series.
This month, your issue of Northwest Travel Magazine will feature a great story on Rupert’s! Writer Nickolas Neely focuses on Chef Gary Kucy’s love of all things local and his commitment to maintaining a seasonal menu teeming with local ingredients. From the local farmer’s market to foraging fresh huckleberries and mushrooms to incorporating local venison, elk, and bison, all of Rupert’s dishes focus on the freshness of flavor. And an added bonus? Enjoy a few of our favorite recipes that incorporate these local ingredients! Below is a quick snapshot of the story, but you can get your own copy on newsstands now!
Christopher Hall from Via Magazine (a AAA publication) recently made a trip to Idaho to see what all the fuss was over “beef and potatoes.” What he discovered was a wealth of creative and unique takes on this standard combination. As part of his travels, he stopped in for dinner at Rupert’s. Enjoy and excerpt from the article and see why Mr. Hall is now rethinking Idaho beef and potatoes (thanks, in part, to Chef Kucy’s delicious cinnamon beef and rice noodles pictured here!)
In February, Rupert’s and Hotel McCall were honored to be a part of the Bennett family’s McCall adventure.
