There are ranches with great cooks, cowboy BBQ experts, and some with experienced chefs.

 

Your Hostess... Ms. Lisa Cannon

We went a little further and recruited the best of the best in Ms. Lisa Cannon - the Bar H Bar Executive Chef.

Several years ago we decided to take our culinary experience over the top and invited several well known Hill Country, San Antonio, and Austin area chefs for our own "Iron Chef" competition; with some simply amazing creations Lisa became the hands down winner.

Those of you familiar with fine dining in the Lampasas area could know her from the Historic Hostess House restaurant, or possibly you attended an affair she catered. If you haven't had the good fortune of experiencing a meal prepared by Lisa...well, let's just say you'd travel far and wide to find something which compares.

Lisa works with you and your group to create a meal plan guaranteed to please and excite even the most discriminating palate. All meals are prepared family style and can be tailored to accommodate many dietary considerations.

Your hunting mornings start with pre-dawn coffee, juice, fruit, and some of Lisa's amazing pastries.  

A light way to start your morning and get you ready to begin the search for your trophy.
