Food Lovers’ Guide to Montana, Seabring Davis (Morris Book Publishing, 2010)
“Let’s be honest. No one has ever called Montana a gourmet food destination. It’s far from the trendy world of haute cuisine, black-tie affairs, and fancy culinary techniques. Part of that is because Montana is not easy to get to: it’s far north – up near Canada. And there aren’t a lot of people here – less than a million. And this is a very big state for so few people – which makes it hard to keep a restaurant open.”
Well now, that introduction to the book is pretty blunt, but we’ve discovered through several “drive abouts” in the state that some darned nice people are raising some darned good food. Most of it you have to make yourself, though…
