"If you associate cowboy cooking with barbeque, beef, and beans, you're in for one Texas-sized surprise. In his latest cookbook [Cooking The Cowboy Way] with June Naylor, Grady Spears travels North America in search of food that celebrates what he calls the "cowboy way," a lifestyle born of life in the saddle or on the trail. The cowboy-turned-chef visits kitchens from Florida to Texas to Alberta, Canada, gathering a varied, if not eclectic, collection of recipes inspired by campfires, chuck wagons, and ranch kitchens." --Cowboys & Indians
"Cooking the Cowboy Way follows cowboy cooking across the continent - from Perini Ranch in Buffalo Gap all the way to Homeplace Ranch in Alberta, Canada. There are a couple of urban detours along this tour: the famous Gates Bar-B-Q in Kansas City, and Spears' own tailgate party in Arlington. ... Cooking the Cowboy Way is not a guide to old-fashioned ranch and trail grub. And that's a good thing. The book is an homage to the cowboy legacy, which Spears finds evolving on the nation's ranches." --Dallas Morning News
"[Grady Spears and June Naylor] went all over the country, with a heavy emphasis on Texas, of course, drawing inspiration from cooks on and around ranches large and small. They then took these recipes and adapted them for regular kitchens and modern uses (i.e., dinner parties and backyard cooking). The results sound great." --Texas Monthly
Native Texan and cowboy-turned-chef Grady Spears has created cowboy menus for restaurants he co-owned in Fort Worth, Texas; Granbury, Texas; and Beverly Hills, California, as well as for the Bush family at the Texas Governor's Mansion. This is Grady's fifth cookbook. He owns Grady's Restaurant in his hometown of Fort Worth, Texas.
Award-winning journalist and author June Naylor has covered food, dining, and travel for more than twenty years.

A native Texan, she lives in Fort Worth, Texas.

The book was just as described and a great find! The outside hardcover edge of this book was a little bit worn (looked like it could be from use or just from shipping). Read morePublished on August 10, 2013 by Ashley Lapinski
This is a modern cookbook, but uses classic recipes from the range as a basis. Illustrations are wonderful, and the recipes are easy to follow.Published on July 19, 2013 by DONALD S WESOLOWSKI
