My name is Allie Mendelsohn and I have been spending summers in the Wood River Valley for the last 23 years. I have been meaning to contact you for almost that long! Last week as a last-blast, end of summer hike Chrissy Johnsson, Leslie Fairbrother and I decided to hike to Pioneer Cabin. It's a gorgeous hike as I'm sure you know, but also long. So we called in take out orders for lunch from Perry's.
As usual, the service was friendly and professional and the food was good. But it's the cookies I am writing about. They were beyond good. They were sublime, outstanding other-wordily and awesome in the true sense of that word.
We got six of the smallish cookies that tasted of orange, coconut and possibly ground nuts. I'm sorry I don't remember what you call them, but I've had them there before so I'm guessing you know which ones I mean.
I am writing not just to compliment you on a wonderful restaurant that keeps it's quality and small-town feel up year after year, but also to beg and plead for a copy of the cookies recipe. I only want it for my own (and my children's) joy. I know that even if I follow your recipe to the letter chances are it won't be quite the same, but it would be a start. And I just don't see how I can go until next June without any of those cookies. They were the essence of healthy goodness and being in Ketchum with a view of majestic granite mountains. Take pity on me in humid, North Carolina pining for my summers in Idaho! :)
Sincerely, Allie Mendelsohn
I just wanted to let you know that my wife and I recently passed through Sun Valley on our way from Glacier National Park back to home in Los Angeles, and asked someone we met in town for a recommendation for dinner. From three recommended restaurants, we picked Perry's because that is my name! We went to dinner there on Wednesday August 4th and had a great dinner. My wife had the meatloaf and I had the braised beef ribs, and we had a very good and extremely reasonably priced bottle of wine to go with it. The service was great, the food was delicious, and the prices were very reasonable.
Thanks for a very memorable experience. We will definitely return next time that we are anywhere in the area.
Regards, Perry Hirsch Los Angeles, California
