Sante Fe in the 1940s was cherished as a secret pleasure, a cultural center wrapped in old-world charm. And in 1944 Rosalea Murphy's Pink Adobe restaurant became the favorite haunt for artists from Georgia O'Keeffe to Mark Rothko. Fifty years later the Pink Adobe's sophisticated yet uncomplicated menu takes advantage of all the marvelous ethnic foods available in today's market, but it has kept its original, wonderfully authentic style.
Here are 141 brand-new recipes plus twenty-eight complete menus for brunch or lunch, picnics, barbecues, cocktai parties, and buffet suppers (cocktails and wine included, of course) -- easy, exciting dishes that make parties and get-togethers extraordinary.
