San Antonio catering company Don Strange of Texas, known across the state as “the king of caterers,” is acclaimed for serving fresh, delicious food with imaginative flair, even at events attended by thousands of people. From its humble beginnings as a small grocery store and meat market, the business has evolved into an empire of catering venues.
The author, Don’s wife, reveals his innovative genius in cooking and serving party foods, his showman’s sense of fun and surprise, and his dogged persistence in overcoming the challenges of feeding huge crowds under adverse conditions.

The book contains more than one hundred of the caterer’s most popular recipes, adapted for the home kitchen by noted chef Terry Thompson-Anderson. Also included are cooking tips and sample party menus. Tracey Maurer’s full-color photographs illustrate selected dishes and the caterer’s signature serving style.
