- Vacations at all-inclusive dude ranches are adding tasty elements to stays filled with horseback riding, fly-fishing, hiking, and other western favorites. The Dude Ranchers Association is seeing firsthand the growing emphasis on food- from gourmet meals and wine and beer tastings to cooking lessons and specialized culinary packages. Here is a taste of a few culinary offerings from member ranches:
<!--[In Colorado at Smith Fork Ranch, Taste of the West culinary weekends include vista wine tasting, cooking class, and 5-course meal using organic produce from the farmstead garden and local lamb, game, beef, and fish.
<!--[As the fall air cools in Idaho, Red Horse Mountain Ranch's Wine Tasting Weeks combine adventure, relaxation, candlelit dining, and a selection of Pacific Northwest wines.
<!--[Hidden Meadow Ranch in Arizona turns guests into chefs with their Foodie Package. A private cooking lesson with the head chef and cooking demo classes will have guests creating delicious dishes complete with perfect wine pairings.
