About The Author:
Born into a family of Russian and Slavic background, Jerry Predika learned to prepare foods at an early age. He fondly remembers celebrating Russian Christmas and Easter at
his grandparents' home and, in preparation for the festivities, making sausage with his grandmother the old-world way.
As he grew older he realized that many fine old recipes were being lost with the deaths of older family members. He started to collect them
and now he has gained a well-earned reputation as cook and caterer specializing in traditional ethnic recipes. Says Predika, "In my own endeavors
to find enlightenment on sausage-making for my own use, I cursed many times over that a book had not been written on the subject. What a beautiful
art and it's dying out!"
Jerry Predika, a professional artist and wine counselor for a California winery, brings artistry to everything he does, whether it's painting or
teaching wine appreciation classes or making his own sausage. He currently resides in Santa Cruz, California.

Step up and say howdy to the Lone Star food groups: Barbecue, Chili, Tex-Mex and Traditional Texas. There's a long tall Texan in town with a
different brand of grub that's already staked a claim on the most discriminating palates around.
Here are the secrets of world-class "chili-heads," the legends and lore of Lone Star fare, the authentic best of the Great Empire of Texas.
You,ll learn to build a 55-gallon drum smoker and to master the fine art of slow smoking, to dig a four-star BBQ pit, to identify each of the
many peppers which lend distinctive zing to everything from killer chili to Jalapeno Pie. You'll learn what a Rocky Mountain Oyster is, who are
the hottest chefs on the chili circuit and much, much more.
Whether it's a craving for 'cue or a flare of chili passion, an irresistible desire for a mess of Mamma Doris' Country Fried Rattlesnake or a thirst for a Pink Armadillo,
Texas On The Halfshell can satisfy it -- and then some. It's been a long trail that's led through smoky BBQ pits and crowded chili parlors, spicy Tex-Mex joints
and downhome country kitchens to corral the 300-odd recipes presented here, but when you tie on the feed bag you'll reckon it was all worthwhile.
About The Authors:
Second only to art, food is Phil Brittin's favorite pastime. He started eating as a child, and hasn't stopped since. He's an expert on
Western history and lore whose uncanny ability to extract the truth of the tallest Texas tale made this book possible. A Westerner born and
bred, Joe Daniel is the great-grandson of grocer Ben Daniel, whose chain of grocery stores was famous for its private brand: Daniel's Pride.
Though the stores were long ago absorbed into more modern supermarkets, the pride lives on in Joe's approach to a contemporary book on food,
not merely a compilation of recipes, but a document of a unique culture.
