Montana is full of exceptionally talented chefs, including James Beard Award winners and nominees. But we're also home to a vast number of home recipe creators, and those who carry on many generations of hearty, Montana traditions. It's really the best of both worlds. The modern and the old-school. Experimental and traditional.

There are so many Montana-based cookbooks that we couldn't possibly list them all here. But we DID scour the racks for some of the absolute best, old and new. A bit of everything, if you will. NOTE: Some of the cookbook authors no longer live in Montana, but we did make sure there was a Montana connection.
