Some say it is variety. We think it is incredible food.
Food that is imaginative, inventive and mind-blowingly delicious!

Friday, April 5th through Sunday, April 7th, 2019

Chefs, restaurant owners, sommeliers, and foodies from all over the nation will come together in McCall Idaho and work in concert to educate and invigorate your palate highlighting world-class food, wine, and fun… the Shore Lodge way.
