Description: Shinin' Times at the Fort, by Holly Arnold Kinney, celebrates the legacy and cuisine of the historic Fort restaurant just outside of Denver, Colorado. Since the doors opened in 1963, the Fort restaurant has been serving new foods of the Old West in an extraordinary setting with four-star service. More than just an exemplary restaurant, the Fort is a cultural institution and living museum. 

Built by Holly's father in 1963 as the family home, The Fort is a replica of Bent's Fort built in 1833. When the costs of construction and maintenance exceeded all estimates, Holly's father, Sam Arnold, decided to convert the first floor into a restaurant and reserved the upper floor for the family home. Since 1963, the Fort has been a destination restaurant for food and history lovers around the world. 

In more than 160 recipes, many of them gloriously photographed by award-winning Southwest photographer Lois Ellen Frank, Shinin' Times at the Fort immortalizes the legacy and cuisine of this American treasure. From rattlesnake to buffalo and masa to chiles, Shinin' Times at the Fort presents popular ingredients of the 19th century in updated dishes designed to appeal to 21st century palates. And because Holly feels so passionately about sharing this magnificent food, the recipes in Shinin' Times at the Fort have all been tested for the home kitchen and are easy to recreate.
