Overview

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 Levi’s to keep them going. A Taste of Texas Ranching takes readers to more than thirty ranches in the Lone Star State and introduces them 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 colorful viewpoints of life on the range and spin a yarn or two. A cookbook, history book, geography book, story book, and a book about western America, A Taste of Texas Ranching serves up a slice of life along with a piece of the pie.
