For generations ranchers of the West have mastered the art of outdoor cooking. Today, The Alisal Guest Ranch and Resort is proud to not only keep that tradition alive but take it to the next level. With The Alisal’s 10,000-acre working cattle ranch and world-class resort as a backdrop, celebrity dessert expert, author and chocolatier, Valerie Gordon, offers up a simple recipe for creating a luscious Bistro Chocolate Cake.
Watch the video recipe with step-by-step directions for creating dessert perfection, using Big Green Egg cookers, quality ingredients and some time-honored outdoor cooking methods. The result is a dense, delicious, chocolaty treat that would feel right at home in a fine Parisian restaurant.
After seeing how Valerie creates this baking magic you may be inspired to learn more about her delectable dessert recipes. You can check out her award-winning cookbook, Sweet, catch her on Bravo’s “Top Chef: Just Desserts” or best of all, meet her in person at The Alisal’s next BBQ Bootcamp. BBQ Bootcamp brings together some of America’s top grill masters and The Alisal’s own Executive Chef Anthony Endy, to share their tips and tricks for outdoor cooking.
The next BBQ Bootcamp is October 20-22, 2019, so call the Ranch reservation specialists at for rates and availability. This is a unique chance to get up close and personal with the wonders of the Big Green Egg and taste the dessert delights of Valerie Gordon. We look forward to sharing this experience with you.
