"If you love food and history, as I do, this re-release of the ‘Frying Pans West’ cookbook and 1960 s PBS cooking show series is an absolute Treasure-but take it easy on the Taos Lightning-it packs a punch!"
Dr. Jay Gitlin, Professor of History, Yale University
Recognized nationally as an authority on foods of the Southwest and early West, Arnold 's 'Frying Pans West' cookbook is a historic gastronomic journey westward. Handsomely illustrated by his late artist wife, Carrie, the highly entertaining, informative cookbook is a result of Arnold 's painstaking research of the diaries and journals kept by early 19th century settlers, trappers, and traders.
Savor this reprint of Sam Arnold's delicious but long out-of-print ‘Frying Pans West’ cookbook. For desert you get Sam's vintage public television series cooking shows, a treasure for both food lovers and history buffs! These edible history lessons will give you a well seasoned taste of the foods of the Early West. Sam Arnold (1926-2006) created Colorado's most distinctive culinary landmark, the Fort Restaurant in the red rock foothills of Morrison, a National Register of Historic Places treasure. A well known TV and Radio personality for a half century, Sam is reincarnated in this tribute concocted by his daughter Holly. When you get to the historic whiskies and spirits, raise your glass of gun powder whiskey and toast Sam and the Fort with "Waugh!"
