Shinin' Times at The Fort CookbookShinin’ Times at The Fort Cookbook!

By Holly Arnold Kinney

This fabulous cookbook details the history and recipes of The Fort from 1963 to present. Filled with color pictures this 260 page, hardback cookbook is the perfect gift for friends and family!

“Shinin’ Times at the Fort is an impressive work that blends recipes that read like edible history lessons, heart-felt stories, and vivid photography. As a whole, the book beautifully represents the Fort’s significance in our Western History.”
– Amanda M. Faison – Food Editor, 5280: Denver’s Magazine.

“This gorgeous book with its tempting, do-able recipes and almost edible photographs is a fitting tribute to The Fort, an American treasure. It amply reflects the high quality and festivities guests enjoy at this truly unique restaurant that celebrates our historic Western kitchen with lusty, delectable and underrepresented fare.”
– Mimi Sheraton, former New York Times critic who now freelances for the New York Times, Vanity Fair, Food and Wine, and other magazines.

Purchase a Sissy BearSissy Bear of The Fort!

Sissy Bear lived at The Fort from 1963 until 1982. She loved our pet German Shepherd, “Lobo” and they played for hours entertaining The Fort patrons.

May this “Sissy Bear” cuddle and play with you as she did in our family. I used to take naps with Sissy after school.

She loves to cuddle and snuggle most any time. Make a sound like a motorboat, sort of a purring noise, and then you’ll know she’s happy. Give Sissy a hug from me!


Holly Arnold Kinney, Proprietress

If you love food and love history, as I do, this re-release of the Frying Pans West cookbook and 1960s PBS cooking show series is an absolute treasure—but take it easy on the Taos Lightning—it packs a punch.
– Dr. Jay Gitlin, Professor, Yale University

Savor this reprint of Sam Arnold’s delicious but long out-ofprint Frying Pans West cookbook. For dessert you get Sam’s vintage public television series cooking shows, a treasure for both food lovers and history buffs! These edible history lessons will give you a well seasoned taste of the foods of the Early West. Sam Arnold (1926-2006) created Colorado’s most distinctive culinary landmark, the Fort Restaurant in the red rock foothills of Morrison. This is a treasure and is part of the National Register of Historic Places. A well known television and radio personality for a half century, Sam is reincarnated in this tribute concocted by his daughter Holly. When you get to the historic whiskies and spirits, raise your glass of gun powder whiskey and toast Sam and the Fort with “Waugh!”
