TDF: Roaring Judy Re-Creation
Add to your calendar
Date: August 13, 5:30 pm
Details: The road to Roaring Judy Ranch winds lazily through acres of sagebrush and rolling hills before arriving at the perched cabin-style home of Linda Fialkoff. Linda is a designer by nature, working with such famed companies as Miriam Haskell and Kenneth Cole. So when it came time to design her own home, she played an active and creative hand. Her involvement is immediately apparent in details such as the freeform lines as wood meets stone in the floor of the entryway and kitchen, the custom living room pieces, and the choices of bright red accents against rich, dark 150-year-old beams. Southwest art of beaded moccasins and ceremonial pieces, ledger drawings and spirit poles adorn the nooks and crannies creating a world of mysterious intrigue. Outside, nature is left to its own design with a voluptuous garden wildness fitting for the home’s location on 118 acres on the edge of an elk preserve. The complete outdoor kitchen with multiple surrounding decks face perfectly west, overlooking unique peaks such as Flat Top and Round Mountain, for that awe-inspiring evening sunset. Linda has further improved the residence in the last several years, with a breezeway connecting the pre-existing home with the addition, and the expansion of even more lush gardens.

Chef David Wooding likes to cook on the cutting and progressive edge. He has gained a reputation in Crested Butte for elevating "normal" cuisine, recreating it to be as exciting as it is accessible. He thrives on spontaneity driven by freshness, his imagination excelling as his dishes take on additional French, Italian and Nouveau American airs. David attended the Johnson County School where he studied Culinary Arts. He served with Chef Michael Turner of the Classic Cup and Linda Dewar of JJ's, both in Kansas City. A popular chef at The Center's Tour de Forks events, David's experience includes Executive Chef / Owner at Bonez, Executive Chef at Maxwell’s, Chef de Cuisine at Lobar, and Executive Chef at the Secret Stash and Red Room. He teased your palate at AlpenChix with hearty, seasonal food before joining the Marchitelli team. David comes to us with the exploratory nature of his private chef endeavors.
