This cookbook well represents the food we eat in Texas, from simple fajitas to more complicated dishes. The recipes are authentic, the book is colorful copy with beautiful photos and is a nice gift.
Today I sent a copy with Houston friends headed for Istanbul to take to Turkish friends who have visited Houston often through the years. The book will be a hit!
Many of the recipes I grew up with such as fajitas with nopales, chili, huevos rancheros, chicken fried steak, chocolate pecan pie (desserts and fried food in moderation of course)are in this cookbook. The best chefs is Houston, Dallas, Austin and San Antonio have recipes in this cookbook. Our Texas cooking includes food from all over the world.
I have had The Foods of Texas for several years and I use it often although I know many of the recipes from memory from frequent use.
If you only have one Texas cookbook, this one is the one.
