Best of the Best from Big Sky

By: Gwen McKee


The sky is not the only thing that's big in Montana and Wyoming. The heritage, the history, the culture, the cuisine...it's all big.

We invite you to recreate in your own kitchen the cooking style that is uniquely Big Sky. From Flathead Lake Monster Potatoes to Buffalo Stew, and Montana Huckleberry Chocolate Fleck Pie to Wyoming Whopper Cookies. Enjoy all the most sought-after recipes from sixty-eight of the region's leading cookbooks.

You'll find down-home cowboy fare like Drovers Stew, easy-to-prepare one-dish meals like Omelet in a Bag, and wondrous wild game and fish recipes like Montana Stuffed Baked Trout.

As the co-founder (with her husband, Barney) and the editor-in-chief of Quail Ridge Press, she has dedicated the past two decades to preserving America's food heritage. Through Quail Ridge Press, Gwen has now accomplished much of this task by creating the 50-volume Best of the Best State Cookbook Series that includes over 20,000 classic recipes.
