I gained my writing and reading skills from my high school English teacher. He later drowned on a Colorado River rafting trip. I've worked at many jobs; river runner, powder monkey, golf course manager and fry cook just to name a few. I met my wife in the early 80's and together we finished our degrees at Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff. I'm in the middle of my twenty-sixth year of teaching middle school. I've published two articles with "True West" magazine. This is my first attempt at the book publishing business. Oh yes, I have several unfinished screen plays. I'll finish those up in the next few days.
This cookbook is like none other. Every recipe is preceded by an adventure tale that explains the birth of each delicious and fun to prepare dish. Some of Chet’s food adventures include: Being pursued by a dangerous assassin, held captive by an aging Russian spy and discovering the secret Chinese recipe for constipated lumberjacks. A must for bachelor types and vagabonds all.
