You have to leave the interstate to find the food so lovingly described by Pamela in her book. Photographs are by Paulette Philpot, winner of a national award from the Professional Photographers of Canada. An extra bonus: the foreword is by one of the state’s foremost fiction writers, Alyson Hagy of Laramie.
Pamela has a master’s of arts degree in communications, and she is an adjunct faculty member at Northwest College. Her hobbies include cooking, gardening, hiking, and reading. She resides in Worland with her husband and four dogs.
Here’s more about the book from amazon.com:
This exquisite cookbook features sophisticated interpretations of Western dishes from Wyoming’s finest restaurants, lodges, and bed-and-breakfasts as well as classic Cowboy State favorites. Belly up to the table for mouthwatering Western cuisine: Blue Ribbon Caramel Cinnamon Rolls, Pine Nut Crusted Goat Cheese, Warm Green Bean Salad, New West Clam Chowder, Lamb Ossobucco, Brandied Apricot Stuffed Pork Loin with Port Wine Glaze, Pan-Fried Rocky Mountain Trout with Hazelnut Butter, Sour Cream Cherry Pie, and Wild Huckleberry Muffins with Orange Glace. Complementing the delectable recipes and gorgeous photographs are excerpts from the works of Wyoming writers and delightful historical images. Author Pamela Sinclair as struck a culinary cord with Wyomingites, according to author Alyson Hagy, who writes in the foreword, “Sinclair has discovered a knotty little Western secret. She has toured our kitchens and our stubborn gardens and our memories. She has listened to the way our stomachs growl before we head off on a brisk hike or after we’ve spent a twilight hour shoveling snow. She knows our hearts are half-hitched to our dinner plates.”
