What to Read on How to Become a Cookie
Barbecue, Biscuits & Beans: Chuck Wagon Cooking
by Bill Cauble and Cliff Teinert
Bright Sky Press, 191 pp., $24.95Chuck wagon cooking experts Cauble and Teinert have written a definitive Texas cookbook one that ably addresses our Western heritage while reflecting the various regional and ethnic culinary influences that help create our fondness for bold, hearty flavors. The recipes are straightforward and easy to follow, with delicious results whether you're cooking for a group of hard-working cowhands or a hungry family. There is plenty of reliable information and useful tips about the Dutch-oven cooking for which the authors are well known. The text is illustrated with a mixture of mouthwatering food shots, Texas scenery, and colorful photos depicting experienced chuck wagon cooks at work. After a breakfast of light, tangy Sourdough Biscuits and spicy Huevos Especiales con Chorizo Chile Colorado followed by a dinner of Tart Honey Game Hens and Creamed Corn, this book moved onto my list of Texas cookbooks I can't do without.
