Saucy Cowgirl's Deviled Red Potato Salad, Silver State's Beef Short Ribs, Triple Lemon Ripple Cake... mmm, the taste is nothing short of terrific! In this outstanding collection, forty-nine of Nevada's leading cookbooks have contributed their very favorite recipes.
From chuck wagon food to gourmet classics, the cuisine includes influences of American Indian, Mexican, Italian, African American, Chinese, and Greek. The early settlers brought their Basque influence in the form of delicious soups, stews and flans, and a few surprises... like using chocolate in their game recipes. You may not make Six Mile Canyon Rattlesnake, but it's fun to read how it really can taste delicious. Facts and photos throughout the book add additional charm to the overall flavor of the Silver State.
