Chef Matney will cook at luxury lodge

One of the biggest culinary personalities in the Valley heads north for the last weekend in August to share his colorful and innovative cuisine.  Chef Eddie Matney, owner of “Eddie’s House” will work side-by-side with Hidden Meadow Ranch’s own Chef Kurt Jacobsen.

Guests dining at the Ranch House Restaurant at Hidden Meadow Ranch, Arizona’s high-country luxury guest ranch located near Greer in Arizona’s White Mountains, can expect a scrumptious and entertaining evening.

Starting at 6 p.m. on Saturday, August 25, Chef Eddie Matney will prepare three courses of his classic American and Mediterranean inspired cuisine, ending with a “cherry on top” dessert.

“Usually you can only get my favorite dishes at Eddie’s House, but as a special treat we are going to take some of our favorite recipes on the road and prepare a delicious meal at Hidden Meadow Ranch,” said Matney. “Hidden Meadow Ranch has always been a special place for me and my family and I want to share it with all my friends from Eddie’s House.”
