Meet YouTubers and DIY Adventurers Trent & Allie—From Camper Renovation to Home Design, They Take Ordinary to EXTRAordinary
Trent & Allie are a couple of DIY adventurers who have traveled the world in their camper van for three years, driving all the way from Canada, through Central America, to the southernmost tip of South America, before deciding to turn a plot of land in the mountains of Utah into their home base. Their challenge is to live every day to the fullest and encourage others to do the same, even in the midst of blizzards, plumbing disasters, and crane malfunctions. It’s been a whirlwind building a home at an elevation of 8,000 ft. and they are excited to share their renovation and home-building adventures. Come see Trent and Allie in person on the Design Stage Friday at 5:00pm and Saturday at 11:00 and 5:00pm
You can also catch them every Monday and Friday at 7 a.m. on YouTube.
Claudia and Alfonso | Santo Taco
We got our start in the U.S.A. when we first moved to the Salt Lake valley decades ago. We, Claudia, and Alfonso, began working in small kitchens in the Salt Lake downtown area. We had to first learn English and then each job of the kitchen. Beginning in the back of the kitchen washing dishes and then onto helping prepare food before we gained skills in a professional kitchen as a cook.
My husband and I have been married for 25 years and have a daughter, a son-in-law, a son and a dog. I started cooking over 20 years ago when I started a Pampered Chef business. I love cooking and parties! I loved it so much and wanted to learn all I could about food and cooking so, I went to culinary school. I graduated with a Culinary Arts degree from the Salt Lake Community College in 2015. Since then I have continued my Pampered Chef business and added a catering business, Dining With Donna.
