JENNIE IVERSON lives in Vail, Colorado and is the best-selling author of Ski Town Soups, Ski Town Après Ski and the soon-to-be release Ski Town Brunch. Jennie is also a wife and a mother of 3 fast-growing boys with healthy, enormous appetites. Breakfast time has turned into sleeping late and lingering over brunch time or even second breakfasts during the morning, which she encourages because they can embrace the day, fully energized and then make their stamp on the world! 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 out-of-doors and surrounding mountains. To sample some of the best soups for Ski Town Soups, appetizers and drinks for Ski Town Après Ski, and brunch creations for Ski Town Brunch, 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 and the “will travel for food” philosophy has been a perfectly balanced recipe for life: a ski town, a comfortable restaurant and a yummy food dish to share with family and friends. Reaffirming that brunch, soups for lunch and après all day are always good ideas. Professionally and following the launch of these cookbooks, 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, 5280 Brunch Event, Blues, Brews and BBQ and Gourmet on Gore.
