Order from Amazon.

The Tex-Mex Grill and Backyard Barbacoa Cookbook is pure Robb Walsh—as delicious to read as it is to cook from. Robb explores with the zeal of an adventurous journalist, reels you in with the skill of a great story-teller, and entices you into the kitchen with wow-that-sounds-great creativity. His sections on butchering and grill wrangling will insure that this book stays on my kitchen counter for a long, long time.”
—Rick Bayless, author of Authentic Mexican

Sex, Death & Oysters
Sex, Death & Oysters
Sex, Death & Oysters…captures the Houston food writer at his best, offering culinary insight, scientific fact, and offbeat humor as he travels the globe in search of the truth about oysters (including their alleged resemblance to the female anatomy and occasional fatal effects).
–Mike Shea, Texas Monthly Magazine
Broadway Books, 2007.“A Western saga of a cookbook with wild and delicious stories, photos, and recipes. It feels like a collaboration by John Wayne, Larry McMurtry, and Emiliano Zapata.”

—Davia Nelson & Nikki Silva, NPR’s Kitchen Sisters

Chronicle Books, 2002.“If the Barbecued Honey Pork Loin and Sonny Bryan’s Rib Sandwiches don’t get your stomach growling and your mouth watering, then the Mashed Potato Salad and Fried Green Tomatoes will! This book not only takes the reader on a smoky culinary journey through the state, it also offers rare historical insights. It is destined to become the ultimate guide to Texas barbecue.

Co-authored with David Garrido, Chronicle Books, May 1998.“Food historians ten or twenty years hence might well call it a benchmark, a book that shows, through 98 engaging recipes and a lively enlightened text, where a major element of Texas cooking has been and where it might well be headed.”

Traveling Jamaica With Knife, Fork & Spoon
Co-authored with Jay McCarthy, Crossing Press, 1995.“Like almost no other food writer around, Robb Walsh has the knack of getting to places where appetite and hunger remain on intimate terms, and of reporting back on that experience in ways that illuminate both a people and their food. I once fantasized about starting up an alternative food magazine just to publish a piece of his about Southern prison food that I felt more of the world should read. This book will make you understand why.”
