Jessica McCleary opened the doors at Mountain Town Olive Oil nearly 10 years ago. In that time, she’s seen a lot of customers who don’t realize the full potential of the oils, vinegars, and spices, so she created The Next Course, an experience to help her customers.

The Next Course is a two-hour tasting class offered on Main Street that introduces attendees to the many ways to use oils and vinegars while also demystifying many cooking techniques and helping us all have a little more fun in the kitchen.

Thematic menus featuring 3-5 recipes include an optional wine pairing and more than a few made for TV moments as The Next Course Chef Deanna Fitchat of DeeLicious Park City demonstrates a technique before the finished item magically appears ready to enjoy.

In addition to solving the question of what to do with quality oils and vinegars, Jessica also wanted to create an experience for visitors and residents of Park City looking for something to do after a few days on the mountain in both summer and winter, or for residents and visitors looking for something to do in lieu of a mountain adventure.
