Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
Situated just 30 miles north of Santa Fe off the High Road to Taos, the highly acclaimed Rancho de Chimayo Restaurant has been serving traditional New Mexican cuisine in a beautiful setting for half a century. The atmosphere at this traditional Spanish hacienda, surrounded by mountains, is rivaled only by the fine, native cooking served in the grand early tradition by generations of the Jaramillo family. In 1991 the restaurant published a modest paperback cookbook for their silver anniversary. Twenty-five years and 50,000 copies later comes this beautiful new edition, just in time for the 50th anniversary celebrations. All recipes are completely revised and updated, with more than twenty delectable new dishes added. As an extra bonus, the book also features charming archival images as well as stunning full-color food and location photography, making this a beautiful keepsake of a special place as well as a mealtime companion to turn to again and again.

The groom’s family provided the food for the fiesta, plus a wedding gown and other pretty dresses for the bride, and her family prepared a series of special meals and hosted most of the events. Virtually everyone in the neighborhood attended the ceremony at the church, the reception afterward, and the wedding dance at a community hall that night, which went on until the wee hours.
