Additional Details

Description: The broad and hearty state of Texas has evolved a cuisine that is pretty much its own. It is derived from the heritage of good living in the Old South and enlivened with vast contributions made by the French, the Anglo-American colonizers, the Indians, the Spanish, and the Mexicans, with a little Italian and Chinese mixed in. Arthur and Bobbie Coleman, native Texans both, have incorporated all aspects of this tradition in The Texas Cookbook, which is a glorious potpourri of tall eating, tall drinking, and tall tales. 

The 250 recipes in this book, ranging from fragrant barbecue sauces to "Son-of- a-Bitch Stew," from crackling bread and tamales to onion steaks, from sweet-potato pudding to Mexican Christmas Salad, run the gamut of the best of Texas eating. The directions are clear, simple, and accurate. The recipes are adapted to the modern kitchen and modern cooking methods. And the authors spice their fare with many a tall Texas tale and the colorful lore that has made Texas famous throughout all the world. 


Condition: Good condition. Dust jacket has some minor wear at corners.
