Texas Cowboy Cooking

By Tom Perini

Texas Cowboy Cooking  
Cowboy cooking isn't fancy, but once you've had the real thing you don't forget it. Tom Perini cut his teeth in the ranching business and accumulated the kind of cooking know-how and recipe arsenal that just can't be taught. His authentic "chuck" bridges the gap between life on the trail and in the backyard. From Jalepeño Bites to Ranch-Roasted Ribeye to Tom's classic Bread Pudding with Whiskey Sauce, Texas Cowboy Cooking is chock full of recipes for everything from a light lunch to a holiday feast. And with each dish, he serves a generous helping of personality and more than a smattering of cowboy lore.

Tom Perini learned his meats the hard way. Having grown up in Abilene, Texas, Tom spent years ranching before starting his catering business and later opening the Perini Ranch Steakhouse. He has since taken his chuck wagon and cowboy cooks all over the world to spread the gospel of good, old-fashioned, Texas-style "chuck."
