The bunkhouse at the ranch


After a few breezy hours in a hammock and some ping pong at Planet Marfa, the local biergarten, we hopped in the car with some new friends and headed north to the Lambert Bunkhouse on Saturday night. The family’s ranch home sits on a hill in between Marfa and Fort Davis overlooking the gorgeous expanse of verdant Jeff Davis County.

First, a demonstration on from-scratch focaccia. Dough goes into dutch oven. Dutch oven is placed atop half a dozen hot coals. Cast iron lid goes on top of dutch oven.  More hot coals are placed atop the lid. Twenty minutes later you have ready-to-eat oily onion flat bread.


  • Onion focaccia
  • Grilled asparagus with cherry tomato relish
  • Cesar salad
  • Gold garlic potatoes
  • Ribeye, rare, with cremini mushroom relish
  • Rack of lamb, rare, with chimichurri sauce
  • Apple & blackberry cobbler a la mode (below)
