Jaime Teigen grew up in Northern Idaho. Her parents, brother, and his family still reside there. It's where her love for the outdoors began. She learned how to ski at a very young age, camped and fished with her family, and got a little dirty out on the farm every once in a while. It wasn’t until after high school and working at a friend's restaurant that her love for cooking really took flight. She moved to Portland, OR, and went to Western Culinary Institute. Shortly after culinary school, she moved to Jackson Hole, WY where she started her career as a general manager and executive chef at a local restaurant. Shortly after her move, she met her husband and that’s where she started her passion for hunting and appreciating the process of harvesting their own meat. Truly knowing where it came from and using every part of the animal. These experiences are something that they get to share with their daughter and they love every minute of it. Now, living in Montana, Jaime gets to live out her passions as first a mother and wife, a chef, hunter, fisher, skier, and outdoorswoman. She currently is the Chef and Professional Sales Manager at Burch Barrel. This experience has brought back the true meaning of being connected to your food so that she can share that with her friends and family. Jaime loves cooking for those around her, so that they may experience the passion she has for the outdoors through food.

Formally trained at The French Culinary Institute in New York, she went on to hold positions at some of the best restaurants in the country and gain skills and techniques from renowned Chefs across the globe. Her love of cooking and the outdoors collided when she packed a heavy cast iron pan into the backcountry. That’s when she realized that if she was going to enjoy a great adventure and a great meal, she was going to have to find a solution for packable meals- and started Gastro Gnome Meals, a packable food company in Bozeman, Montana. Shannon now eats a lot of really dry food in far-flung places accessible by packable boat, mountain bike, or skis. When she's not out there, she holds court in the kitchen at Gastro Gnome.
