Overview

Shinin’ Times at the Fort, by Holly Arnold Kinney, celebrates the legacy and cuisine of the historic Fort restaurant just outside of Denver, Colorado. Since the doors opened in 1963, The Fort restaurant has been serving new foods of the Old West in an extraordinary setting with four-star service.
More than just an exemplary restaurant, The Fort is a cultural institution and living museum. Built by Holly’s father in 1963 as the family home, The Fort is a replica of Bent’s Fort built in 1833. When the costs of construction and maintenance exceeded all estimates, Holly’s father, Sam Arnold, decided to convert the first floor into a restaurant and reserved the upper floor for the family home. Since 1963, The Fort has been a destination restaurant for food and history lovers around the world.
In more than 160 recipes, many of them gloriously photographed by award-winning Southwest photographer Louis Ellen Frank, Shinin’ Times at the Fort immortalizes the legacy and cuisine of this American treasure. From rattlesnake to buffalo and masa to chiles, Shinin’ Times at the Fort presents popular ingredients for the 19th century in updated dishes designed to appeal to 21st century palates. And because Holly feels so passionately about sharing this magnificent food, the recipes in Shinin’ Times at the Fort have all been tested for the home kitchen and are easy to recreate.
To create Shinin’ Times at the Fort, Holly established a dream team in cookbook publishing. In addition to securing Lois Ellen Frank for the photographs, she tapped two New York publishing professionals: Mary Goodbody as her editor, and Barbara Scott-Goodman as creative director. She also hired author and southwestern food expert, Beverly Cox to test the recipes.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

"Let's build an adobe castle like this!" New Yorkers might gasp at the idea, but when Coloradoans Sam and Elizabeth Arnold saw pictures of an early 19th century fur-trading fort, they knew immediately that they had to live there. So they built a full-scale replica. When costs soared prohibitively, they decided to transform the first floor into a restaurant and live upstairs. And thus, the Fort, one of the Denver area's most celebrated upscale eateries, was born. Shinin' Times at The Fort celebrates the food, history, and ambience of this hybrid restaurant and living museum. And, oh yes, the recipes will satisfy any appetite.
