HBG Press | Southern Utah’s Boulder Mountain is an imposing mass of stone, the snowy southern end of the beautifully named, breathtaking Aquarius Plateau, a place where vertiginous roads link small farms and communities at the gateway to the vast Grand Staircase–Escalante National Monument. It’s also the center of a food movement that brings the best of local agriculture to the internationally renowned Hell’s Backbone Grill, whose owners here offer a collection of recipes for such tasty treats as green chile and tumbleweed scones, Frisky Creek tarragon trout, black bean and butternut posole—and even organic dog biscuits. Throughout this richly photographed book, they deliver elegant little essays on the whys and wherefores of locally sourced foods, as well as on the philosophy of food and cooking that has made their restaurant a treasure worth driving for hours and miles to visit: “Remember that when you’re cooking, you’re transforming energy and feeding it to yourself (and maybe some other lucky humans). Take your time, use all your care, and infuse your work with heartfelt joy.” Amen. —Gregory McNamee Show less
