Real Barbecue Planned For Conference Finale


Meet the Chef for this year’s conference barbecue: Traci McClintic-Hargrave.

Traci has been on the board of the Jackson Hole Writers, the force behind the conference, for two years. But when she dons her other hat, she is catering and planning events. Traci has more than fifteen years of experience in the culinary industry. She has catered for film crews, magazine shoots, on back-country horse packing excursions for private clients, and for guests at her own restaurant. So we are grateful that she is taking on the conference barbecue, which will be a barbecue. See menu below.

Her passion for cooking led Traci to pursue a formal degree in the culinary arts. In 2015 she graduated from Le Cordon Bleu International, receiving certificates in pastry and cuisine from schools in Canada, New Zealand, and England. Her culinary skills have been honed by Chefs from around the world. In 2016, she launched her own catering and event planning company in Jackson, Wyoming, providing services that reflect years of training and experience in the hospitality industry.
