The stars of the YouTube channel Kent Rollins Cowboy Cooking, authors of the hit cookbook A Taste of Cowboy, serve up spins on southern and western favorites, with a side of spiritual values
Real-life cowboy Kent Rollins captivates fans from Branson, Missouri, to the Big Apple with his maverick cooking, country humor, and wisdom. In their heartfelt new book, Kent and Shannon Rollins invite everyone to sit a while at their table. Honey-Chipotle Chicken is hot off the grill. There’s Cracklin’ Cornbread in the skillet and Cool Cucumber Dill Salad from the garden. Save room for the Homemade Cherry Almond Ice Cream. But first, it’s time for grace. Out here, there’s no Wi-Fi—just family and friends.
The food is lively, but the recipes are relaxed. Kent’s inspirational sayings, tales of the range, and cowboy poetry combined with Shannon’s stunning photos and quotes from scripture capture faith, hope, and appreciation of life’s blessings. So praise the Lord and pass the Cheddar-Jalapeño Biscuits!
About the Author
KENT ROLLINS grew up ranching and began cooking for cattle ranches in 1993 from his 1876 Studebaker chuck wagon. An acclaimed storyteller and poet, Kent has appeared on the Food Network and NBC's Food Fighters. He and his wife, SHANNON, run Red River Ranch Dutch Oven Cooking Camp.
“Reading Kent Rollins’ chuck wagon recipes—no fancy ingredients here—and gazing at his wife, Shannon’s, mouthwatering photos—no fancy food stylists here—are as comforting as a campfire and a guitar. Their book is right out of a Currier and Ives print, full of cast iron, logs, masa, cornmeal, smoke, frying, and the Oklahoma cowboy drawl. If you ever wanted to be a cowboy when you grew up—as did I—and ride, and rope, and brand, and cook under the stars, then this book is as close as you can get.”

“Shannon and Kent Rollins exemplify quintessential rural America, a place where family values are sacred and community ties are strong. Weaving family recipes with deeply personal stories, they take you on a spiritual journey, giving you a glimpse of a slow and deliberate lifestyle that remains unmarked by time. You’ll be inspired to gather your own family around the table, feed them with these delicious dishes, and create in your own home the tangible feelings of love, warmth, and fellowship that spill from the pages of Faith, Family, & the Feast.”

“Authentic and delicious! Kent Rollins knows food, and he knows how to bring stories of the American West to life. It doesn’t get any better than the great food with original ingredients that Kent shares in this cookbook. I’m a big fan.”
