The Bandera General Store is hosting a book signing and meet and greet for The Texas Chef Stan McDonald and his cookbook, A Taste of Texas, this Saturday, Feb. 25 from 1-3 pm and the public is invited.
McDonald was born in Midland, Texas and raised in Fort Worth. His grandparents lived and worked on the Little Hoss Ranch about 30 miles south of Fort Worth in Johnson County and McDonald spent a great deal of time there as a boy growing up.
McDonald’s love for cooking came from this background and it has been a driving influence in his life as a chef. Having started cooking full time in 1974, McDonald traveled the Unites States in a never-ending search for culinary knowledge. He has worked in virtually every type of food establishment imaginable, but he always returns to his Texas roots and love for Texas cooking and food.
In 2013, McDonald wrote his first cookbook, A Taste of Texas, and now spends his time promoting Texas and its cuisine. He is known by fans as The Texas Chef and said he wears the title proudly.
A Taste of Texas cookbooks will be available for purchase at the signing for $20.
