The Sun Valley Culinary Institute is launching a Passport to Dining to support Wood River Valley restaurant during the pandemic.

The two-month-long promotion is designed to encourage valley residents to dine in or take out between Oct. 15 and Dec. 15, the tail end of which is considered slack season in the Wood River Valley.

Sun Valley Culinary Institute is designing and printing passports and providing them to participating restaurants. Those who present their passport after dining will receive a stamp in their book. And when the passport is completed, it will be submitted for a chance to win a drawing for an overnight stay at Boise’s Hotel 43, along with dinner at Chandler’s.

The winner will be announced Dec. 30.

Restaurants who want to participate should contact Karl Uri at 208-309-2700 or email him at karl@sunvalleyculinary.org. There is no charge to be included on the passport.
