THE TEXAS COOKBOOK by Arthur & Bobbie Coleman


Email this review


Two native Texans (from San Antonio) have brought together all the things the outlander associates with Texas eating -- barbecues, chiles, tortillas, and the like, and added the things home ranch folk know and like, and seasoned it all with some favorites of their own and their friends, and turned out a cookbook, with 250 recipes, old and new, which men particularly would find to their liking. Unfortunately, for the northeasterner or the middlewesterner, many of the ingredients and the Spanish names for things will keep them checking back to the glossary, only to find that certain spices, herbs, and other ingredients are not easy to find outside the region. But for a regional cookbook- and a somewhat specialized one (Texan in style, breezy, a bit on the rough side) this has its place. ""Tall eating- tall drinking- tall tales.
