TALISKER RESTAURANT COLLECTION SUPPORTS "AN ARTIST AT THE TABLE" EVENT
PARK CITY, UTAH (January 19, 2012) " Talisker, the largest mountain real estate and resort operating company in Park City, is taking a starring role in the Sundance Film Festival's "An Artist at the Table". Talisker Restaurant Collection and award-winning Chef John Murcko are catering the Day One event, which celebrates independent filmmakers. The event was recently named one of the world's 10 most exciting events by Worth magazine.
"Talisker is thrilled to support the Festival and showcase our portfolio of properties including three preeminent family-oriented residential communities, Talisker Restaurant Collection and the reinvented Canyons Resort," said Linda Warren, Chief Marketing Officer of Talisker Mountain Incorporated. "Restaurants like Talisker on Main and The Farm will host festival-goers, many of whom will stay at Canyons Resort's vibrant village or in our marquee Waldorf Astoria Park City."
Executive Chef John Murcko, who directs more than two dozen public and private dining venues in the Talisker Restaurant Collection, will create a mountain-inspired culinary extravaganza for "An Artist at the Table" where filmmakers and film lovers kick off the festival on Thursday, January 19. This event comes on the heels of hosting "Cocktails with Cooper" in December 2011 where Sundance Film Festival Director John Cooper offered a sneak preview of Festival films at Alpine House restaurant in Canyons Resort village.
In addition to its support of Festival events, Talisker and Canyons Resort are poised to delight festival-goers with a collection of premier dining venues ranging from slope-side hideaways to historic Main Street " The Farm at Canyons features seasonal cuisine largely sourced within 200 miles of Park City; the visionary Talisker on Main restaurant on historic Main Street was named "Best Restaurant in Park City" by Salt Lake Magazine; Slopes by Talisker at Waldorf Astoria Park City serves fine cuisine with a "living well" mantra; and the newest restaurant, Bistro at Canyons, which debuts this winter as a world-class, Paris-style bistro prepared within kosher standards.
Following the most ambitious ski resort enhancements in the USA this past year, Canyons Resort offers a dynamic range of new on-mountain amenities including the European-style Ski Beach with beach chairs and lifeguard stands; nine new dining venues ranging from fine-dining restaurants to upscale food carts; the Orange Bubble Express that is North America's first heated chair lift; a ZipTour Adventure that rockets guests up to 50 mph and hundreds of feet above the resort terrain; and vastly expanded snowmaking capabilities.
