It's no wonder that Texans love to eat: the Lone Star State is not only the nation's second largest producer of agricultural products but also one of the richest in culinary diversity. Texas cuisine is defined by the food cultures of the early Mexican, African American, German and Deep South settlers, along with those of more recent immigrants from Asia and other parts of the globe.
In compiling Lone Star Eats, Terry Thompson-Anderson has pored over a vast collection of Texas cookbooks and chosen the best examples of the way Texans eat today. More than 500 favorite recipes are included, from down-home comfort foods with rural roots to sophisticated dishes of urban inspiration. Drawing from more than 65 different cookbooks, published by some of the state's leading chefs and by community organizations such as junior leagues and church auxiliaries, Terry has selected traditional favorites as well as new classics to illustrate the mouth-watering array of good eats that characterize Texas cooking.
Terry Thompson-Anderson is a professional chef, cookbook author, culinary instructor, and restaurant consultant. She has written five cookbooks, including Texas on the Plate, Cajun-Creole Cooking, Eating Southern Style, and The Texas Hill Country: A Food and Wine Lover's Paradise. Terry is a charter member of the International Association of Culinary Professions (IACP) and the Southern Foodways Alliance.
