Grady Spears, Robb Walsh
Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
A haute take on one of America's most traditional cuisines--that of the Texas ranch.
Don't be thinking this book is just full of ribs, beans, and biscuits . . . . unless, of course, you're thinkin' South Texas Venison Ribs with Peanut Dipping Sauce, Black Bean Nachos with Chargrilled Chicken, and West Texas Biscuit Pudding with Southern Comfort en Glace.
