Here in Bozeman you get to meet so many cool people. Over the last year I have had the pleasure of getting to know Shannon Waters as she launched her new brand Gastro Gnome meals, a backpacking meal company making some of the best meals I’ve ever had. When I was first introduced to Shannon I probably had some preconceived notions, San Fransisco chef moves to Bozeman and starts a backpacking food company. It wasn’t long before Shannon threw those stereotypes right out the window. Shannon has this ability to be all in, something my over analyzing brain lacks seriously. Thats not to say makes rash decisions, or even impulse. Shannon has an ability to deeply analyze something and then act without doubt.
Recently Shannon picked up hunting and actually had a great first year. Coming from the high end restaurant world of farm to table it was a natural progression into hunting your own food even though she has experienced kick back from within her circles.
