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.
