The Rancho de Chimayo Cookbook
The Traditional Cooking of New Mexico 50th Anniversary Edition
by Cheryl Alters Jamison and Bill Jamison
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.

When we moved to New Mexico 10 years ago, my husband and I ate at this restaurant. So, when I didn't know what to get my son for his birthday, I decided on this cookbook as his relaxation and love after a tough workday is gourmet cooking. He likes the book so much, he took it on his last business trip and studied the recipes all the way from Boston to Washington state and back.
