Since the world’s first-ever national park—Yellowstone—was established, national parks have fed millions of hungry visitors in their historic dining rooms and restaurants. From Acadia’s famous puffy popovers to Zion’s loaded Navajo tacos, guests have long enjoyed a range of unique regional cuisines, meals made from foraged foods, and gourmet menus whipped up by celebrated chefs, even in the middle of nowhere.
Who can forget that piping-hot platter of Moose Drool–Braised Bison Short Ribs in Yellowstone, or the massive slab of Mile-High Blackberry Ice Cream Pie in Shenandoah? Maybe you keep dreaming about the Huckleberry Margaritas from Grand Teton (and the spectacular sunset that accompanied them on the deck of Jackson Lake Lodge), or you still order the same boysenberry pie from Yosemite that you remember from your childhood. (Pssst... It’s still made the same way as it was more than 60 years ago!)
Now you can re-create and enjoy these legendary recipes at home with The National Parks Cookbook!
Part cookbook and part escapist lifestyle book filled with stunning travel photography and national park history, The National Parks Cookbook features recipes from popular national park destinations in the west, east, north, and south. You’ll find signature dishes from the top 10 national parks in the country, including:
- Classics like the Grand Canyon Hiker’s Stew from Phantom Ranch and the Yosemite Firefall Cocktail from The Ahwahnee Bar
- Original recipes inspired by park flora and fauna such as Lingonberry Brie en Croute from Denali
- Local culinary specialties like Fried Fish and Fungi with Creole Sauce from the Virgin Islands
Take a food-driven tour through the parks and take your taste buds on an adventure with memorable recipes from breakfast to dinner, appetizers to dessert, and everything in between!

The pictures alone are enough reason to buy this cookbook - they are stunning! I have been to some of the parks highlighted in this book and was delighted to revisit the memories of my vacations!
I would recommend trying the Fry Bread and Cornbread recipes as they are stellar. I am also anxious to try the crab mac and cheese in the near future.
This cookbook contains a variety of foods and drinks to suit all tastes. Highly recommended!
This is a gift worthy cookbook featuring breath taking pictures of the National Parks. The recipes are interesting and are accompanied by anecdotes about the places and people that inspired them. Really enjoyable.
