Welcome to the pop-up, also known as limited-edition, underground dining catering to the “experiential diner”—someone who values a transformative experience as much as an unforgettable menu. Pop-ups can be a one-time only event, or they can take place regularly over a few weeks or even years. They’re often in an atypical setting—an art gallery, a boutique, a greenhouse—that provides an intimate, unexpected venue for a limited number of guests who pay as much as $100 to $150 for their repas.

Culinary Crafts is dedicated to the one-and-done model, delivering a one-time menu at a one-time location, and moving to an all-new venue the next time. Mary and her chefs place a special emphasis on locally sourced foods. Their recent pop-up, for example, featured torched Utah goat cheese, mesquite-grilled Rocky Mountain trout, sous vide Double R Ranch rib eye, local cheese and Amano chocolate and Utah apple crostata.

“It’s not just about the food,” she adds. “It’s the whole experience: the pairing of wines, the location, the sharing of where the cheeses come from, how gelato is made, how to properly taste chocolate.”
