Arcady Ridge Ranch
I am often asked to define my culinary style. Simply put, I don’t have JUST one. I love making good food for my friends, family, community, clients, hungry people. Actually, the best compliment I received on style was from Chef David Duverger in London. Imagine, in a french accent, “Your style, it iz, ah, somewhat rustic, but (pause to ponder) oui, it works.”
So, it turns out my style is perfect for this place we have here.
Fresh, Local, Colorful, Flavorfilled, Variety
Kindness in the people I work with & those I choose to work for.
To set the scene
The meal is set out on a canvas cloth, with cast iron, hand made wooden spoons from walnut trees back in West Virginia, big solid cutting boards filled to the brim with cheeses, meats and sauces. Dutch ovens steaming. Maybe there’s a chuck wagon in the sage brush and golden rod, a small wood fire and lamb roasting on the grill… a few horses grazing in the pasture overlooking the Ramshorn.
Or maybe I set out the canvas cloth, but this time with crystal wine glasses, candelabras, silver trays of charcuterrie, some mismatched limoges plates in a variety of floral patterns waiting to be filled with roasted duck, black cherry port wine gastrique, pommes anna, golden beats & green beans almandine. Home made chocolate and rose petal ice cream for dessert with a bit of walnut brittle.
Same horses grazing in the back ground. Same magnificent view.
Or maybe….Let’s figure out what best suits you.

Traci McClintic caters our final night dinner for the Jackson Hole Writers Conference — dinner for 120 or so — and her food and presentation are always impressive. She is an outstanding chef. Traci is a dream to work with. She puts in the time, talent, and impeccable taste it takes to make a perfect event. The dinner and desserts not only taste great, they looked great. I highly recommend Traci for your next catered event.
Our holiday party, catered by Traci from Arcady Ridge Ranch, far surpassed our visions and goals thanks to her talent, attention to detail, menu, and expertise. Traci was absolutely wonderful! All of our guests raved about both the food and the presentation. She served Swedish meatballs with Lingonberry Jam & Dijon Gravy, Caramelized Green Onion & Toasted Kale Dip, Zucchini Herb Fritters with Garlic Yogurt Sauce, and Blackened Shrimp Sliders on Cheddar Herb Scones. She presented truly one of the most beautiful and savory Charcuterie boards with all sorts of dried fruits, the finest cheeses and meats. The extra special touch was the Sweet Take Away gift, a Cream Puff with Chocolate Ganache and Toasted Coconut. I highly recommend Traci for any event!

Turtle Ranch Films
I have had the pleasure of knowing Traci as both a friend and colleague since she opened her first restaurant in 2006. Since then, I have hired her whenever possible to cater film shoots throughout the state, and at Turtle Ranch, where she creates impeccable, delicious, and bountiful meals in remote environments and under rapidly changing conditions. Her good food and positive nature are appreciated by all production crew members. As always, she has my highest recommendation.
Traci’s Favorite Review
She is an artist of food.
Thanks for catering the end of the year Graduation Celebration and Banquet for the SOAR students, parents, and staff. Everyone I have talked to was blown away by the meal and presentation, including myself. Dessert was over the top. You will be a hard act to follow, so I hope you are able to commit again to next year.
