Rahm Fama has always had a "fascination with meat." At nine, his grandfather taught him how to slaughter a lamb, on his family's ranch in Chama, New Mexico. Today, Fama wants to teach the rest of us to savor our food. "We eat because we have to," says the 36-year-old. "But how many meals do you actually remember? That's why I became a chef." For the past four years, Fama crafted unforgettable elk, antelope, and even rattlesnake dishes as the executive chef of the Wildflower, the restaurant at the Lodge at Vail. But you can now experience his cooking in your own home: In September, he debuted his show Meat & Potatoes on the Food Network.
