Description: Come along on an Epicurean odyssey to the winter wonderlands of our nation's premier ski resorts in the most enchanting mountain settings. During this unforgettable tour, you will be introduced to incredible food from the very best snow-covered playgrounds in the world -- food you can re-create in your home. The adventure begins at the intimate Plumpjack in California, with stops at the famous Stein Eriksen in Park City, Utah, the opulent Little Nell in Aspen, the elegantly rustic Lake Placid Lodge in New York and 16 other exclusive winter retreats. 

Gwen Ashley Walters, author of the award-winning The Great Ranch Cookbook: Spirited Recipes and Rhetoric from America's Best Quest Ranches, takes you on a culinary journey of bountiful feasts in luxurious accommodations suited for royalty (and you!) As in the ranch cookbook, Ms. Walters describes the recipes with her own special brand of rhetoric, sometimes humorous and always passionate. 

A professionally trained chef and certified culinary professional, Ms. Walters demystifies the wizardry of some of our nation's top chefs. The result is an accumulation of delightful recipes duplicating the fine cuisine found in these remarkable lodges. Along with downsizing the recipes to home-size proportions, the author also provides descriptive vignettes of each property, including the amenities and activities. 

Ms. Walters invited 20 top-rated ski lodges to open their doors and share their secret recipes. Lively selections for wintry mornings -- like Blackberry Stuffed French Toast and Lemon Poppy Seed Waffles with Strawberry Mint Sauce -- beckon the reader throughout these pages. For dinner, try the Chili-encrusted Pork Tenderloin, or Pan-seared Rack of Lamb with Charred Onion Jus, or the comforting Spicy Meatloaf. 

Last, but not least, as genuine aficionados know, a meal to remember is not complete without a stunning dessert such as Chocolate Volcano with Fresh Raspberry Coulis or Vanilla Latte Ice Cream Tart with homemade Fudge Sauce or Caramel Pecan Cheesecake. These and many other equally scrumptious recipes are presented within these pages. Best of all, Ms. Walters personally tested each recipe in her home kitchen to ensure your success as you prepare these gourmet treats in your home.
