The Great Ranch Cookbook

By Gwen Ashley Walters

The Great Ranch Cookbook  
Whether you're planning a trip to a guest ranch or just want to recreate the rustic feeling of being at a ranch through the cuisine, this book is an invaluable resource.

Along with complete menus and selected favorite recipes you'll find all the information you need to know about the spirit of each featured guest ranch.

So snuggle up in your favorite easy chair and travel to each of these ranches for exciting adventures you won't forget!

"This cookbook is a unique product that is unmatched in the current marketplace," according to Olin Ashley, spokesman for the publishing company. "The concept explores 30 exclusive western guest ranches and lodges and features the fabulous gourmet cuisine from America's top guest ranch chefs." In addition to the "outstanding" recipes, the book explores the culinary personality of each ranch, providing insights to the gastronomical adventure awaiting potential guests.

"With full menus and delicious descriptions of each recipe," Ashley added, "Ms. Walters has created the perfect 'novel-type' cookbook that will provide readers with endless hours of entertainment and enjoyment."

Travel-enthusiasts also may enjoy the customized vignettes the author has written for each locale in The Great Ranch Cookbook. Which ranches offer the best horseback programs? Who has exclusive fishing waters boasting trophy-sized trout? What is it like, visually and emotionally, to visit each of these ranches? All of these questions are addressed in a personalized dialogue that promises to keep the reader turning the page to discover more.

"I wanted to address two needs with this book," Ms. Walters said. "First and foremost, I wanted to share the wonderful cuisine I've personally enjoyed over the years as a guest ranch visitor. I wanted to do it in such a way that gives the proper recognition to the culinary talents each of these ranches has discovered and employed. That's why I delve into the backgrounds of the Chefs and staff. I tested all the recipes, too, to make sure that anyone could successfully re-create every dish at home.

"The second objective," the author continued, "was to answer the question most often asked by people who have never been to a guest ranch. They want to know, 'How do I find the vacation ranch that is right for me and my family?' I tackled this in two ways. First, standard information is provided across all the ranches, such as season, guest capacity, activities and rates. Second, each ranch is described in detail, giving readers a 'visual' cue to each place. I've told them what it looks like standing in front of the lodge, and I've given them an up-close view of the activities and the uniqueness of each location. Ms. Walters concluded, "My ultimate goal is to help readers discover a vacation destination that's right for them. I absolutely love vacationing at guest ranches. I love the outdoors and I love cooking. I've just combined my biggest passions in life, and it has been a supreme pleasure to share them with others in The Great Ranch Cookbook."

The book is distributed through major bookstores and specialty outlets such as gourmet kitchen stores, western apparel stores, and upscale grocery store outlets. The retail value is $19.95 and includes gorgeous color photographs of the ranches.
