Jennie Iverson - Chief Curator
Jennie Iverson is the author of the Ski Town Cookbook Collection. She lives in Vail, Colorado with her family and is the best-selling author of Ski Town Soups, Ski Town Apres Ski, Ski Town Brunch and the trilogy box-set Ski Town Kitchen. Jennie is also a wife and a mother of 3 fast-growing boys with healthy, enormous appetites. After savoring days on the mountain, Jennie and her family enjoy "special drinks" and snacks around the fire, sharing stories about the day's events.
Jennie considers herself a gourmet in the kitchen, but more evidently a gourmand -- enjoying restaurants, bistros and any dining establishment where she can sit down to others' creations. She also thoroughly enjoys traveling to other ski towns, as she relishes locals who take advantage of the outdoors and surrounding mountains. To sample some of the best soups for Ski Town Soups and appetizers and drinks for Ski Town Après Ski, Jennie has traveled to Sun Valley, Jackson Hole, Mt. Bachelor, Mt. Hood, Whitefish Mountain, Big Sky, Moonlight Basin, Heavenly, Northstar, Park City, Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, Copper Mountain, Aspen Highlands, Aspen Mountain, Snowmass, Buttermilk, Bretton Woods, Canyons, Deer Valley, Keystone, Killington, Mad River Glen, Sugarbush, Okemo, Smugglers' Notch, Steamboat, Stowe, Stratton, and Whiteface. What has grown from these travel experiences has been a perfectly balanced recipe for life: a ski town, a comfortable restaurant and a yummy food dish to share with the family. Reaffirming that one should raise a glass in a toast, more often.
Professionally and following the launch of Ski Town Soups, Jennie has relished in many extraordinary culinary opportunities: guest judging the Lake Tahoe soup-cooking competition, launching the inaugural Park City Soup Crawl, guest appearances at The Cottage at Mirror Lake and Omni Mount Washington Resort, covering the Stowe Wine & Food Classic, authoring monthly articles for the Vail Daily, blogging about Aspen's SoupSkol competition and following many renowned food events, such as Feast!Vail, Beaver Creek Food & Wine Festival, Taste of Vail, Cochon555, Denver Burger Battle, Blues, Brews and BBQ and Gourmet on Gore.
Jennie Iverson has quickly become a foremost expert on ski town cuisine.
