A Taste of Texas Ranching
With more than 30 real-life ranching recipes, you can make meals fit to feed the hungriest of cowboys. Welcome to the world of Texas ranching, where "come 'n' get it" is the national anthem, the kitchen is the most important room in the house, meals become staff meetings, and the cook is a treasured member of the outfit. After all, hungry cowboys need hearty, hot meals that'll stretch the buttons on their Levis to keep them going. A Taste of Texas Ranching takes us to more than 30 ranches in the Lone Star State and introduces us to the cook at each one. Not only do these talented souls share their best recipes (including buttermilk pie and West Texas chili), they offer their colorful viewpoints of life on the range and spin us a yarn or two. Authors Bernstein and Bryant call A Taste of Texas Ranching a "cookbook, history book, geography book, story book, and a book about western America." This book definitely gives us a slice of life along with a piece of the pie.
