Additional Details

Description: The hardworking cowboys of the Old West appreciated good food, and here's the book that proves it. Now, with The Wild West Cookbook, you can discover for yourself the flavorful, stick-to-your-ribs cooking that sustained generations of ranch hands from Abilene to Alberta. This is real food, the kind of food that delivers big, satisfying taste. 

And if you've always thought that cowboy cuisine consisted of variations on chili and beans, get ready for a surprise. Here you'll find savory starters such as Tequila Cheese Ball and Smoky Cowboy Quesadillas, as well as hearty soups such as Southwest Soup with Crispy Tortillas and Beer, Cheddar and Wild Rice Soup. Try a Wild West forerunner of today's salads with Spinach and Summer Greens with Spicy Buttermilk Dressing. And when you're ready to chow down on a great-tasting main course, choose from Wagon Boss Chili or Grilled Spring Chicken with Rhubarb Sauce, as well as a wide variety of meat dishes like Flank Steak with Rye Whisky Marinade or Texas-Style Barbecue or Sonof-a-Bitch Stew. And what's a western meal without an old-fashioned dessert? Try a helping of Wild Berry Shortcake accompanied by a mug of authentic Cowboy Coffee. 

The Wild West Cookbook brings you the original comfort food, with over 130 recipes inspired by the chuckwagons and homesteads of the 1800s, thoroughly updated for easy and healthful preparation in today's kitchen. The book also features a rich selection of cowboy images and history that will enhance your understanding and appreciation of the recipes. 

There's no better cookbook for bringing home a taste of the original Wild West.
