Book Description

June 30 2003
With 100 recipes inspired by an unforgettable era of horseback heroes, THE TEXAS COWBOY KITCHEN is the newest cookbook from America’s celebrated cowboy-turned-chef, Grady Spears. A combination of Grady’s inimitable spin on gratifying, hearty food, and the romance of the famous Chisholm Trail where cowboys drove cattle some 130-odd years ago, this beautifully illustrated book turns simple cowboy food into gourmet creations. Palate-pleasing eats from Grady’s newest hit restaurant, the Chisholm Club, reflect an upscale-rustic spirit in food and language and offer a refined take on the trail-driving campfire cuisine of days gone by.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, and great recipes Dec 3 2003
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
This is a gorgeous, coffee table-type cookbook with its beautiful historic photos of cowboys and Texas. But the recipes are also terrific. Spears is a famous chef, but the recipes are very home cook-friendly. And lots of Texas favorites, like an updated version of Frito pie with venison chili. Only one I didn't like that much was a Dr Pepper cake. But the meat recipes are great. So are the campfire cocktails!

5.0 out of 5 stars A New Frontier in American Cooking!! Oct. 14 2003
Format:Hardcover
It has been a ton of fun looking through my newest cookbook!! I have even tried a couple of the recipes! The addition of the Smith photos (from the Amon Carter Collection) is a huge bonus...they add a dimension to the book that is unique but somehow essential. Ever since I got the first Reata cookbook I've thought it could not be improved upon. I was dead wrong. Everyone I have showed this book to has had the same reaction...it is the most appealing "cookbook" they have ever seen! The reason I put the word in quotes is that it is to everyone who has seen it much more than a recipe binder and that is what I like about it best. It is one part history, one part food, sprinkled with Texana, a story unfolding from a passionate soul. Fire up the stove and gather 'round!! It's time to eat!!
Congratulations, Grady!! You have much to be proud of!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Sorry but no real Texas Cowboy that I have ever known would cook any of this May 14 2006
By Naomi Manygoats - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I love the beautiful photos of real cowboys- a nice pictorial history. I am sure the recipes actually taste good, and I am not accusing Grady of not being a real cowboy, I am sure he was. But sadly to me, he continues the trend of taking traditional food, which was fairly simple and tasty in itself, and re-inventing it to make it fancy restaurant fare. Like Barbecued Quail Tamales with Avocado Cream. I ordered it looking for some classic dishes. I started to order another of his books, that has a great title- just what I am looking for, but now really don't think so. I am sorry- a lot of people would love this, the contents just don't seem to go so well with the title. Perhaps 'The Modern Texas Kitchen' would have been better.

Well, I wrote the above quite a long time ago. My palette has been greatly expanding lately, and I would dearly love to try most of the recipes in this book, and in fact I will try to make some of them very soon! Still not the campfire and chuck wagon food I was expecting, but I think it will be amazing to eat nonetheless!
