'Superb' and 'Outstanding' won't do this cookbook justice!,
By A Customer
This review is from: El Paso Chile Company's Texas Border Kitchen Cookbook (Hardcover)Texas Borders provides wonderful Tex-Mex recipes that are fairly easy to follow. Some of the ingredients may be difficult to find outside of southwest but substitutions could be made. Specific recipes to drool over are Chili Con Queso w/Crab dip (forget the chips, go for a spoon and bowl)and Blueberry Cornbread (I've only followed the non-blueberry version and a sweeter, more flavorful cornbread I've yet to eat). Hoppin' Juan is a delightful twist to the South's Hoppin' John made with green chilies, black-eye peas, and rice. Not only are the recipes wonderful, but Park Kerr's writing style and humor are delightful and a mirror image of the man himself. I try to go by his shop every time I'm in El Paso -- 909 Texas Ave., I think, (Pecan Praline coffee and his Chili seasoning mix are worth the effort). Occasionally I've had the opportunity of visiting when Park is there. He is very witty and personable. His cookbooks are a wonderful addition to my collection and are very entertaining to read. I've even learned to sear those green chilies straight from the store. I will definitely order his new Sizzlin Suppers cookbook. It should be exceptional also.
