Walsh has been pretty busy in the interim; in addition to authoring cookbooks on Texas cuisine, he is also the food critic for the Houston Press and he's racked up a couple of James Beard Awards. And now he's released another great book, one that I already love almost as much as that other one.
"The Tex-Mex Grill and Backyard Barbacoa Cookbook" ($18.99, Broadway Books, 244 pp.) is on par with "Legends of Texas Barbecue Cookbook" (and maybe even better). Just like its predecessor, this one tells its story in Walsh's folksy style. As you turn the pages you'll feel as if you're riding shotgun on Walsh's forays in south Texas and Mexico, seeking great food in out-of-the-way places. And as before, the pictures tell the story so well. This time Walsh was the lensman for about half the photos used and it's evident his photography skills are just about as well honed as his writng talents. I don't know what you'll enjoy more: reading the stories, flipping through the images or trying out the wide variety of recipes included in this book.

I love this book. I am Mexican American and love to compare recipes. This is a good one.
We own several of Robb Walsh's cookbooks ... all are great, not only because of the wonderful recipes, but also because of the stories and commentaries in each book. Read morePublished on January 5, 2013 by mjp
