Book Review: United Tastes of Texas
Combining both her family’s recipes and those of some of Texas’ most award-winning chefs, native Texan and author Jessica Dupuy breaks down the regional differences of the Lone Star State’s cuisine. In her United Tastes of Texas cookbook, beautiful pictures of the completed dishes showcase some of the best our state offers. Along the way, readers learn Texas tidbits from history to info on specialized cooking tools and restaurant recommendations by region.
Chapter 3 covers Coastal Texas and features Chef Chris Shepherd of Underbelly and The Hay Merchant. He explains how our cultural diversity combined with the bounty of the Gulf, local produce and the proximity of local ranches defines Houston’s food scene. East Texas chicken and dumplings, home-style hushpuppies and an assortment of steak recipes help round out the Texas dining experience.
The full Tex-Mex spectrum is discussed and the book answers all your barbecue questions, including where in the state you might add sauce and where you shouldn’t.
With this most recent cookbook, Jessica Dupuy has created a full resource for both the Texas cook and foodies everywhere.
