Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Montanan cuisine finally makes it onto America's culinary map thanks to the efforts of Brokaw and Wright. The cooking of America's western plains reflects the habits of the ranchers who populate these wide-open expanses on the eastern slopes of the Rocky Mountains. Since a hearty breakfast is vital to generating the physical stamina needed for a day of horse riding and cattle herding, the authors offer recipes for baked eggs, rich cinnamon rolls, and sage-chive biscuits. A picnic lunch on the range features bison burgers. Bison also appears in a distinctive version of osso buco. Despite Montana's northern clime, Mexican-inspired foods dominate: margaritas, chilis rellenos, and guacamole. Recipes call for plenty of exotic ingredients, such as Meyer lemons and Roquefort cheese. Essays on the joys of ranch life offer insight into the rhythms of Montana life, and full-page color photographs give a good sense of this wide-open territory. Brokaw's husband Tom contributes a foreword recounting his early infatuation with the West that led him to buy a Montana ranch. Mark Knoblauch

This is one of our favorite cookbooks.

The recipes are great but the text articles about life in Paradise Valley make this book truly wonderful!

Ellen Wright has done it again. This time, with Meredith Brokaw. And the two have combined to put together a wonderful array of recipes that are easy to follow and wonderful to serve to guests. Often at my dinner parties I refer to Ellen Wright's previous books. But now Big Sky opens a new door to cooking and presents inviting and simple recipes that will have your guests in awe of your skills. Even for simple family meals, you will find yourself referring to Big Sky time and time again... I don't know what I did before Big Sky was published. This is a five-star cookbook that everyone should have in their home.

I love the cookbook. Unfortunately, it is ruined by faulty editing of too many of the receipts. For example, ONE CUP of minced garlic in 3.5 cups of chimicurri sauce? FOUR POUNDS of beets for a soup this supposed to serve 6-8? 3.5 TEASPOONS of baking soda for parmesan pan biscuits that makes 12 biscuits.

Those who have followed Ellen Wright's colorful advice about entertaining back East should surely be eager to gobble up her third hardcover offering ... this one co-authored with Tom Brokaw's wife Meredith ... about how to really do it right out West.

Given her eye for great photography and scenery that sets the mood for serious as well as whimsical meals, Ellen's "Big Sky Cooking" has already earned a place on my kitchen bookshelf as a combination coffee table travelogue and special occasion reference book.

I'm looking forward to using it during lakeside entertainment at our cabin this summer.

The recipes are great but the text articles about life in Paradise Valley make this book truly wonderful! My only criticism (and I'm also writing the publisher) is that the editing needs work. Several typos keep this from being a 5 star book.

Format: Hardcover
The authors experienced a frantic Manhattan lifestyle tempered by visits to Montana until they bought a ranch and become involved in the food traditions of the area. When passionate cook Ellen Wright discovered the area's blend of fresh game and ingredients, she joined them and BIG SKY COOKING WITH REFLECTIONS features a fine blend of full-page color photos, recipes, and dishes steeped in Montana ingredients. Sesame-Soy Venison Chops, Elk Pepper Steaks, and Bison Osso Busco aren't dishes you'll find many other places, either.

Ellen Wright has done it again. This not about just cooking and entertaining, subjects the author deals with elegantly. It is about style and a unique way of doing things. She knows how to make a hostess look good and how to do it in an effortless way. Her suggestions are out-of-the-box - - spicy grilled shrimp with chicken curry with a New Yorker cartoon at every plate...incredible.

Wright takes books and writing like this to a new level.

This is a "must read" for anyone who cares about entertaining.
