    Looking for the best Western (yet sophisticated) cookbook, buy this one!

    If you've never been to Chico, you must. If you don't have this cookbook, start here. It's all and more of the very best that Chico and its fine chefs have to offer in easy to read, easy to do language. For years, I have been a huge fan of their Pine Crust Halibut, or the Chico Trout appetizer, and their wild game combo specials are not to be missed. I'm always amazed that a place so remote could offer such great food (and wine!). Kudos to Seabring and Colin for putting this together.
