A haute take on one of America's most traditional cuisines--that of the Texas ranch.

Don't be thinking this book is just full of ribs, beans, and biscuits . . . . unless, of course, you're thinkin' South Texas Venison Ribs with Peanut Dipping Sauce, Black Bean Nachos with Chargrilled Chicken, and West Texas Biscuit Pudding with Southern Comfort en Glace. You see, at the Reata Restaurant in West Texas, hot chef Grady Spears is cooking cowboy cuisine with an emphasis on the cuisine. Filled with fresh, strong flavors, fascinating ranch memorabilia (these Texans take their history seriously!), gorgeous full-color food photography, and truly marvelous, utterly real food, this is American cooking at its kick-off-your-boots-and-get-down-to-business greatest.

I am from Fort Worth and eat at the Reata restaurant quite frequently. I've had this recipe book for a few years now and cook from it quite often. All the recipes are easy to make, and quite wonderful.

I have just about cooked everything in this book - with the exception of the goat menus! They are all wonderful! The recipes are clear and easy to understand, even for a novice, and they make you look real good!
