Cheyenne, WY - For over a century, Cheyenne Frontier Days has greeted thousands of locals and tourists alike with their Chuckwagon gourmet. Since the first celebration in 1897, volunteers have been feeding attendees of this festival with such delights as Indian Fry Bread, Chuckwagon Barbecue Potatoes, and Cowboy Caviar.
Cheyenne Frontier Days “Daddy of ‘em All Cookbook” captures the essence of this festival for the home cook. In addition to frontier fare, there are light and lean recipes such as curried pasta and broccoli and tasty baked new potatoes. It also includes an entire section on brunch favorites like caramel overnight coffee rolls and zucchini-green chili quiche, along with delicious sandwiches and stews. Old photographs and interesting history tid-bits make this book a trip back in time.
The Cheyenne Frontier Days Festival, which is held annually, is produced entirely by volunteers. The original intent of the festival was to promote ridership on the railroad and economic development within the city. It now provides fun, family entertainment, education, and great food!
Proceeds from Cheyenne Frontier Days “Daddy of ‘em All Cookbook”, which is in it’s third printing and is a 1996 Regional Tabasco Award Winner, benefits the Cheyenne Frontier Days Memorial Scholarship Foundation.
