For more than 100 years Chico Hot Springs Lodge, nestled below Emigrant Peak in Montana's Paradise Valley, has enticed visitors from far and near with its exquisite service and fine dining. Most folks come for the natural hot water pools, but it's Chico's rustic charm and unpretentious glamour that draw visitors again and again. The restaurant at Chico has earned a reputation for excellence with its classic and sophisticated fare--exquisite appetizers such as smoked trout and baked brie with huckleberry sauce, a variety of salads freshly picked from Chico's large garden and hot spring greenhouse, numerous entrees including choice cuts of Montana beef and bison, outrageous desserts culminating in their famous Flaming Orange, and an extensive hand-picked wine list. This cookbook reveals all the favorites (more than 100 recipes) and provides home cooks with the detailed information and tips to reproduce Chico meals from a simple dinner to an extraordinary picnic, barbecue, or wine cellar party. Filled with color food photographs and historic lodge photographs and historical tidbits, this book displays a visual feast of this getaway on the Yellowstone River.
