Texas Cowboy Cookingby Tom Perini, Paschal Fowlkes (With), Robert Duvall (Foreword by)
Cowboy cooking isn't fancy, but once you've had the real thing you don't forget it. Tom Perini cut his teeth in the ranching business and accumulated the kind of cooking know-how and recipe arsenal that just can't be taught. His authentic "chuck" bridges the gap between life on the trail and in the backyard. From Jalepeno Bites to Ranch-Roasted Ribeye to Tom's classic Bread Pudding with Whiskey Sauce, Texas Cowboy Cooking is chock full of recipes for everything from a light lunch to a holiday feast. And with each dish, he serves a generous helping of personality and more than a smattering of cowboy lore.

This is one book you have to purchase, if you like downhome, no nonsense cooking that gives you great results, and with raving reviews from your friends and guests. Dabbling with barbeque is my hobby, and with the Perini Steak Rub recipe, it made my fixins fit for a king! And if you think it's good on steaks, try it on meatloaf. You'll love it.
This cookbook includes some of the best recipes I have ever experienced. I have ordered several books to give as gifts. The buttermilk pie and jalepeno cheesecake are superb!!! Great Job Tom Perini!!!
On time in great condition.
I do a lot of BBQ, Dutch Oven, and Smoke cookin', trying to duplicate what the cowboys had years ago. Since the title is 'Texas Cowboy Cooking' I was disappointed in the book. The receipes are all GREAT, except that I was looking for more basic cowboy fare than: 'Autumn Fruit Salad, Shrimp Dip, Hot Crab Spread, Roasted Garlic-Horseradish Cream Sauce, and Lisa's favorite Caesar Salads'. I was looking for more 'Chuck Wagon Cooking' representing what was served in Dutch Ovens on Cattle drives rather than a contemporary cookbook. There was some of that, but not enough. Good cookbook, but the title is a little misleading.
Texas Cowboy Cooking is not cooking fancy. The recipes are from the Perini Ranch Steakhouse which is famous world-wide for authentic regional cuisine. The recipes are great and included in the book is well-told cowboy lore. Every recipe I've made from this cookbook has been a winner. The Zucchini Perini recipe got raves and the Ranch Beans are the best yet. I've just ordered two more copies to give as wedding presents.
