Taste of the West

Cowboy Cookbook

True West magazine’s “Frontier Fare” columnist and Western Writers of America President Sherry Monahan has recently published The Cowboy’s Cookbook: Recipes and Tales from Campfires, Cookouts and Chuck Wagons (TwoDot, $14.95). From the fact-filled anecdotes and tales of cooking on the open range, Monahan’s latest history-cookbook that you’ll love to use is a must have for Dutch Oven aficionados and wannabe “cookies” who want to cook and bake their way across time and history. You’ll soon be throwing words around your kitchen like “Jamoka,” “Gouch-hook,” “Long-sweetenin’, “Sinkers,” and “Splatter dabs,” all the while trying to figure out how many of your friends you’ll be inviting over to the “Growler” for a “Grub-pile.” I think I’m going to use her old-fashioned Cowboy Thanksgiving to plan my family feast at our “Hacienda” this year. Maybe you will too! If you want to learn more about Monahan, her interests in Western history and all her books, visit her website at SherryMonahan.com
