Overview

What could be better than standing on top of a mountain, snow sparkling, the slopes calling? Not much, except perhaps skiing down to a warm, home-cooked meal that comes together effortlessly.

The Ski House Cookbook makes it all possible with 125 recipes that will keep you on the slopes or winding down with friends afterward, not stuck at the stove. Here are easy and delicious meals designed with minimum prep times for often limited home-away-from-home kitchens, from quick-cooking roasts, sautés, and other fast meals to slow-cooker dishes and recipes that can be made in advance and frozen. And, to get you in the right frame of mind, each recipe is coded with a difficulty rating that corresponds to the familiar green dots, blue squares, and black diamonds of the slopes.

Start the day with ’Twas the Night Before French Toast (assembled in advance and baked in the morning) to keep you going until lunchtime, when a Colorado Cubano (made in a flash from readily available deli meats) will refuel you for the afternoon. An entire chapter of après-ski snacks, including Green Mountain Fondue and Spicy Roasted Chickpeas, helps tide you over until dinner, which includes tempting options such as Roasted Pork Loin with Cherry Balsamic Pan Sauce, Mogul Beef Chili, and Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Bacon. Hearty soups and pastas and indulgent desserts round out this collection of recipes that will warm you up from the inside out.

In addition to the irresistible recipes, The Ski House Cookbook offers practical information on cooking at high altitudes, a section on getting the most out of your slow cooker, and 50 beautiful full-color photographs of the great dishes and snowy landscapes that skiers love. So whether you’re hitting the slopes or just dreaming of days in the lodge, a double diamond pro or struggling down the bunny hill for the first time, here is your go-to guide to making easy, satisfying, and comforting winter meals.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Anderson (photo director, Family Circle) and Pinneo (a stay-at-home mom) grew up in western Michigan and have been skiing together for most of their lives. In their first cookbook, they offer 125 easy recipes for meals from morning to night, including breakfast fare, "apres-ski snacks," and both quick and slow-cooked main courses. Recipes are rated by ease of preparation, using ski-trail icons (e.g., black diamonds for the more difficult ones), and skiing references and puns turn up often in the text and headnotes. There are color photographs of both the finished dishes and of fun on the slopes. For larger collections.

    Excellent Recipes!

    This book is so useful. Of course it has the foods you'd associate with skiing-- chili (red or white), fondue (two cheese varieties, plus a chocolate). The recipes are coded like mountain trails: green for easy, blue for intermediate. There are a few black diamonds.
    The point of this collection is indulgence and simplicity-- none of the recipes are too fussy to prepare after a day of skiing. And many are meant to be prepared before you ski-- and they simmer in the slow cooker all day, until you're ready to eat. There are even sandwiches meant to stay fresh in the lodge until you're ready for them at noon. Now, if only this book could find me a ski-on-ski-off condo...

    A Must Bring for Your Next Ski Trip

    We brought this book on our last two ski vacations to Breckenridge this season and used it almost every night. The Breakfast, Apres ski, dinners, and even the cocktail recipes were superb. We actually cancelled dinner reservations that we had made weeks in advance since we were having such a fun time making the delicious recipes in the book. Everyone enjoyed sitting around the fireplace in the ski house and relaxing with the cozy meals. The recipes are designed not to be too labor intensive and to prepare meals in often under stocked ski condos or homes 'without food processors, mixers, etc.' I skiied everyday and enjoyed cooking at night. If you like to cook and ski, this is the book for you!
