Lou Lambert, known to San Antonio diners for his culinary contributions to the Ocho at the Havana and Anaqua Grill at the Plaza San Antonio, will be signing copies of his new cookbook, “Big Ranch, Big City” (Ten Speed Press, $40) this Sunday at the Quarry Farmers and Ranchers Market, 255 E. Basse Road.
He will also be demonstrating several recipes from the book, while providing tips on making a seamless and easy holiday dinner with a Texas twist.
Lambert, who goes by Louis on the book cover, will be on hand from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The book’s publicity lists a few of the 100 recipes in the cookbook, which will be for sale at the market: “If you’re serving up a down-home feast fit for a cattle rancher’s table, you’ll want to try the Achiote-Seared Chickpeas, Spicy Oak-Smoked Chorizo, Wood-Roasted Chicken with Mexican Chocolate Chile Rub, Hot Smoked Pecan-Cured Salmon, Crispy Wild Boar Ribs with Fresh Plum Barbecue Sauce, and Fried Green Tomatoes with Crab Rémoulade.
“If urban bistro classics are more your style, you won’t want to miss the Brandied Chicken Liver Terrine with Caramelized Onions, Foie Gras Mousseline, Coriander Roasted Leg of Lamb, Panfried Pork Cutlet with Parsley-Caper Butter Sauce, Sabine Braised Duck with Wild Mushrooms and Port, and Roasted Beet Salad with Shaved Fennel and Candied Shallot Vinaigrette.”
