About this title


Thirty western guest ranches, from Texas to Alaska, opened their kitchens and shared favorite recipes with award-winning author, Gwen Ashley Walters. This is no barbecue and beans cookbook. Each ranch employs a gourmet chef to create exquisite 5-star dining, served in the most gorgeous mountain scenery. More than 150 recipes, like Grilled Honey Lamb Chops, Smoky Rib-Eye Steaks with Tobacco Onions, and Blackened Buffalo Quesadillas, have been tested and re-written for the home cook. Each chapter features a ranch, including a description of the property, activities, and a breakfast and dinner menu, complete with the recipes. The author, a professionally trained chef and renowned cooking teacher, provides easy instructions, tips for taking shortcuts, and introductions to each recipe that will leave your mouth watering. If you read cookbooks like novels, you will love this book. So, snuggle up in your favorite easy chair and travel to the wild, wild west, just steps away from your own kitchen.

From the Author:

I wanted to address two needs with this book. 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. I tested 250 recipes and selected 130 to go into the book. I have a web site,, which provides additional information about these ranches and even includes some bonus recipes that I tested that aren't in the book. Each month I feature a new ranch.

The second reason I wrote this book 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. 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.
