Oops! You are too late! These cookbooks are SOLD!!
Here's a great deal on TWO hard cover cookbooks from The El Paso Chili Company by W. Park Kerr.
This hard cover cookbook from 1998 is in very lightly read condition with minimal wear to the covers from use and re-shelving. INSIDE the pages are at least 99% free of any marks, stains or writing. There is a small bow to the front cover, but minimal. A remainder mark on the bottom of the book. 194 pages.
Over 100 recipes. With a down in the West Texas town of El Paso, W. Park Kerr fell in love with food that called out from his roots of the region--kind of a hybrid of Lonesome Dove and Like Water for Chocolate. Kerr fell so hard, in fact, that he went right into the food business with his mother, packaging salsas and the like under the name El Paso Chile Company. But Kerr is a gregarious sort, and that has led to some mighty fine cookbooks that walk the hungry reader into Park Kerr's world--among them, The El Paso Chile Company's Texas Border Cookbook and The El Paso Chile Company's Burning Desires.
And now it's Sizzlin' Suppers. Kerr likes to wander around come supper time, so don't be surprised to find Horseradish Potato Salad (the author nominates this dish to the Steak Side Dish Hall of Fame) or Roasted Beet and Vidalia Onion Salad. Sure, there's a Tortilla Soup, but don't miss out on White Bean and Garlic Soup with Grilled Sausages. Kerr takes a swipe at the classic Salade Nicoise, but adds grilled salmon in place of tuna. His Grilled Shrimp with Guava Barbecue Glaze says a lot more about Puerto Rico than it does El Paso. The man likes to eat, everywhere, and then he brings it all on home. And this Sizzlin' Suppers book is the result.
"Dinner is eating," writes Kerr in the foreword. "Supper is therapy.... It's stew, not ragout. It's gravy or salsa, and never coulis.... Supper means food that you can eat with your fingers, and then you get to lick your fingers afterwards. Supper never met a finger bowl in its life."
The the other hard cover cookbook from the El Paso Chile Company's cookbook titled....
This hard cover cookbook from 1994 is a 1st Edition/1st print and is in very lightly read condition with just light wear to the covers from use and re-shelving. INSIDE the pages are at least 99% free of any marks, stains or writing. There is a scuff on the side edge pages of the book.
This book has been my bible for entertainment since I bought it at least 7 years ago. I was on business in Austin, Texas and found it in the airport book store, luckily. Homemade salsas, barbecue sauces, ointments and marinades, guides to grilling and smoking all kinds of beef, chicken, pork, fish, lamb...how to make sausages, how to make pizza from scratch and cook them on the grill, how to grill sandwiches...tons of barbecue type side dishes...alcoholic and non type drinks, and special deserts. All my most favored recipes have come from this book. Not one thing I have made has been a disappointment and this book has helped me earn the reputation of being one of the best barbecue entertainers around.
My personal favorites include....spicy lemon chicken, molasses mop beef ribs, avocado salsa, picadillo salsa, Western Red BBQ sauce, barbecue pizza (make dough from scratch!), smoked t bone steaks with green chile butter, marinaded and grilled mushrooms, red onions, vegetables, rosemary new potatoes, grilled sweet potato planks, marinaded red pepper & jalepeno Cole Slaw (no mayonnaise!), Jack Daniels pudding cake and SO much more!
