Utah from home

During this time of social distancing and staying safe at home, the Utah Office of Tourism has created a host of Utahan recipes from signature chef’s dishes to Utah classics to some great cocktail recipes you can share with your friends on your next Zoom catch-up.

A kitchen is a special place – large or quaint, remodelled or retro. No matter the size, any cooking-space has the power to yield creativity, experimentation and a great deal of ‘mmmmms’.

Some great Utah culinary artists share their special recipes that all chefs (yes – you) can recreate at home. These recipes are simple to create and designed to give you a piece of #UtahFromHome.

Who doesn’t love a good weekend breakfast or brunch at home?

A homemade dessert is one of the finer things in life, and perhaps you’ve found yourself needing a bite of something sweet (with a touch of salt).
