Lisa George New Cookbook Editor

Lisa George Latigo Ranch ColoradoWhat’s it take to be a good cookbook reviewer? Curiosity, the desire to try new recipes, and a knack for cooking. Our cookbook reviewer, Lisa George has proven she’s got the right stuff.

Lisa, co-owner of Latigo Dude Ranch in Kremmling, Colorado, and head chef there, has been churning out cookbook reviews for for some time now and doing a bang up job. Her dedication and skill have earned her the new title of Cookbook Editor.

Lisa regularly designs menus and cooks (along with her two adult children) for dozens and dozens of would-be cowboys and cowgirls as well as a large ranch staff every summer. She puts her degree in English to good use creating a seasonal Latigo Cookbook filled with guest favorite recipes of the year.

Of her new position as Cookbook Editor, Lisa says, “I’m happy to have the new title and a wider range of cookbooks to review. I may not be very fast at turning out reviews between May and October, but I’ll do my best.”

While the ranch hosts cross country ski guests during the snowy winter months, it’s during this quieter time that Chef Lisa works on new recipes and will be reviewing the bulk of her new cookbook workload. We can just picture her sitting by a roaring fire with snow falling outside and the ovens warming in her kitchen as she tries out recipes for another cookbook review.
