About the Book:
From our Purveyor of Books:
It's no secret that I'm a Gene Autry fan so I went right to the index to find his favorite recipes...and on pg. 118 is Ina Autry's Veal Chops California and pg. 202 Gene Autry's Hearty Western Chocolate Chip Cookies. By the way, we've prepared both and they are delicious!
From the Publisher:
The All-American Cowboy Grill blazes a new trail through the Old West as it partners 200 savory recipes from American cowboys and cowgirls of movie, TV, rodeo, and music fame with 100 photos and sidebars of related interest.
Riding shotgun with the recipes of the celebrities are mouth-watering recipes rustled up by cooks from some of the top real-life ranches of the western United States.
This time around the call to "come and get it!" has the cooks focusing on recipes for the home and patio grill. The bulk of the recipes feature entrees, the star of the grill, but those recipes are complemented with a variety of other dishes that can be prepared on the grill, including vegetables, breads, and desserts, and an assortment of foods that accompany a grilled supper such as cool, cool beverages and side dishes.
The book has short sidebars with real western history as well as western pop culture trivia from the movies and TV. There are short articles on famous western tourist and museum sites.
