My wife and I ate at the Roaring Fork last year while on vacation. It's a fine resaurant featuring American Southwestern food. I liked it but wasn't bowled over. So I was unprepared for how remarkably good the food in this cookbook is. I own over 100 cookbooks, and this is one of the very best.
The food is nuanced, sophisticated, yet very homey and comfortable. Imagine Grilled Shrimp with Chipolte-Creamed Leaks on a Golden Cornmeal Cake or Pan-Fried Trout with a Salad of Spring Melons and Green Onions. The first thing my wife and I tried was Grilled Rib Eye Steak and Blueberry Barbecue Sauce with Roasted-Garlic Mashed Potatoes. The steak sits on a nest of roasted green beans, red onions, and corn. If you are salivating by now, this cookbook isn't for you.
If you are a reasonably experienced cook, Robert McGrath has a treat in store for you. It is one of those cookbooks that you will want to cook through from one end to the other.
