GIDDY UP

As ex­quis­ite a blend of rus­tic­ity and lux­ury as may be found any­where, The Re­sort at Paws Up has be­come a des­ti­na­tion for many fun things since its in­cep­tion in 2005—wed­dings, fly-fish­ing, cat­tle driv­ing, lively fam­ily bond­ing. But this 37,000-acre prop­erty, 35 min­utes out­side Mis­soula, Mont., is rapidly be­com­ing best known as a place to eat. There are good restau­rants, of course—Pomp, for el­e­vated Amer­i­can; Trough, for haunt­ing huck­le­berry pan­cakes; and Tank, for be­spoke cock­tails with a moun­tain view—but the rea­son epi­cure­ans make the trek is be­cause Paws Up reigns as one of the fore­most spots where to­ques like to go and cook. Among other de­li­cious events, this year the re­sort started Cook­book Live, a se­ries wherein big-time chefs visit and spend a few days show­ing you how they make their magic. If the place looks far from home, fear not. From Sept. 21 to 24, Austin chef Amanda Rock­man of South Congress Ho­tel will cook as part of the Mon­tana Mas­ter Chefs se­ries. You’re bound to know some­one there. Rates from $1,440 per night, paw­sup.com
