“Tried and True”

A very fitting title for a book of recipes that have been time tested for generations and approved by cowboys of all ages. There are many reasons that these recipes are cooked year after year in the kitchens of Colorado’s cattle country and after tasting them, you’ll know why.

Don’t let the blood and sweat from a cowboy fool you. In spite of the hard work involved in gathering and working cattle, these cowboys love the experience of it all. The roping, the riding, the cattle work, the camaraderie … and don’t forget the grub! Meals play a key role in a successful day of cattle work and there are certain recipes that the cowboys and cowgirls look forward to year after year. Christi Cage has gathered those recipes together, along with a few family favorites, so that everyone can savor what a little bit of cowboy culture from Colorado tastes like!
