Hangtown Fry — 1849 - Legend says that a
miner from a California gold town called Shirttail Bend wandered into the Cary
Hose Hotel in Hangtown and demanded to have the most expensive meal they had.
Eggs and oysters were the most costly ingredients they had at the time so the
cook came up with this little recipe.
Mountain Cowboy Brown Biscuits
— This classic buttermilk biscuit has a ratio of three parts dry ingredients
to one part tangy liquid, which creates a dough that bakes high, fluffy, and
crisp-crusted. Brown biscuits are traditional Southwest breakfast fare with
honey and butter.
