Hacienda Del Sol

1970’s Recipes from Pastry Chef Vivian Cobb at Hacienda Del Sol

Take a look at some of the classic recipes written by a 1970’s pastry chef at Hacienda Del Sol.

After years of functioning as an elite ranch school for girls, Hacienda Del Sol opened up as a guest ranch in 1948.

During the following years, Hacienda Del Sol Ranch Resort opened its doors and guestrooms to a number of Hollywood’s stars like Clark Gable, Spencer Tracy, Katherine Hepburn and John Wayne. In fact, our newly-renovated Casita Grande is often referred to as the Tracy-Hepburn Casita given the two stars enjoyed a few secret, romantic escapes here. 

Also during this time, a talented woman named Vivian Cobb worked at the resort as a pastry chef. A sweet guest of ours in 2019 stumbled upon Ms. Vivian Cobb’s cook book at a garage sale and passed it along to us.
