Savoury Kitchen serving up pork tacos and mango-guava lemonade at Copper Moose Farm Stand
Copper Moose Farm has been operating their Farm Stand off Old Ranch Road during the summer months for over 15 years.
With fruits and vegetables available for anyone stopping in, the Farm Stand also serves as a pick-up location for Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) members. You can join the waitlist to receive either a half or full share of their locally-grown produce, or a flower share, on their website here. All of their vegetable shares includes weekly recipes and news from the farm.
Aside from produce, the Farm Stand also provides shoppers with access to other locally-made goods, like Park City Creamery’s cheese, Auntie Em’s Baked Goods’ pies and cookies, Red Bicycle Breadworks’ “crack” bread and more.
A partnership with Savoury Kitchen during the summer months also brings delicious meals made-from-scratch to hungry visitors. With reasonable prices relative to generous helpings of chef-made bites, Savoury Kitchen specializes with a menu of “comfort food,” said Chef Marin at their booth at the Farm Stand on Thursday Aug. 17.
Marin has worked as a chef in the Park City area since 2007 and joined Savoury Kitchen 13 years ago. “I like working for Savoury because we make everything from scratch,” he says, while searing pork for an order of tacos.
When it comes to their food, Marin explains that their philosophy centers on food that is “wholesome and kind of sticks to your ribs, you know what I mean. Because the whole farm thing and Americana … (food that) represents what they sell here,” he says, gesturing to the Farm Stand. He adds, “We try to make it like comfort food, but yet still full-flavor.”
Usually serving some form of braised meat, like brisket or pork, cold sandwiches, salads, house-made potato chips and a seasonal lemonade, Savoury Kitchen’s booth at the Farm Stand welcomes customers to sample their products for free. While $16 can seem like a lot for a meal, Chef Marin and Savoury are passionate about making that money go a long way. For Thursday’s tacos, it was no different.
Using herbs from Copper Moose Farm and pork from Christiansen’s Family Farms, located in Fairfield, Utah, Marin crafted three heaping tacos served with generous servings of seasoned kidney beans, Mexican-style rice and a sweet corn and tomato salad. The tacos were delicious, a bite of crispy corn tortilla, tender, still-juicy pork, fresh cilantro and chilled tomato salsa filled my mouth with flavor. There was virtually no spice, allowing the taste of the meat to stand out. The sides of corn, rice and beans were all packed with seasoning and cooked to perfection. It was a hearty meal, easily sharable and also, in my case, left me with plenty of leftovers for a late dinner.
Their lemonade ($1.50), which changes based on seasonal offerings, on Thursday was an incredible mango-guava limeade. The almost-overripe guava added a creamy sweetness to the drink, which at first sip tasted like an orange creamsicle. The tropical fruits paired with the tart lime made this an irresistibly refreshing summer sipper.
You can sample Savoury Kitchen’s food at the Copper Moose Farm Stand on Tuesdays and Thursdays from noon to 6 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
