Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Black-eyed peas

    • Aggie92 on January 03, 2017

      Good recipe for black-eyed peas made easy with canned instead of dried. Used 3 cans of (drained and rinsed) black-eyed peas and substituted 4 slices of bacon for the ham hock.

  • Smoked chicken tortilla soup

    • Aggie92 on February 23, 2017

      Good, solid recipe. Very easy and quick to put together. I doubled the amount of chile powder for a little extra flavor. Other than that, made as written. For toppings we used sliced jalapeños, cilantro, red onion, limes, and queso fresco.

Publishers Text

There are many things that are big in Texas: Wide open spaces, personalities, hair, but above all, there's flavor! United Tastes of Texas is your geographical guide to Texas cuisine based on five distinct culinary regions: Central, Coastal, East, South, and West Texas; as well as the culinary influences brought by settlers from countries including Czechoslovakia, Germany, Mexico, and Spain.

Each chapter starts with a brief history of the region, as well as plenty of interesting facts and bits of history including notes on cooking equipment, stories on local chefs and restaurants that have helped shape each of the regions, and pages of beautiful photography and imagery. But foremost is the food: 125 recipes featuring traditional and regional-specific dishes and cooking methods including Texan takes on Black-Eyed Peas, Skillet Cornbread, Shrimp Creole, Smoked Brisket, Smoked Tortilla Soup, and one of the most classically Texan dishes - Chicken Fried Steak, just to name a few.

Whether you're a native Texan in need of recipe inspiration, a Texas ex-pat longing for a taste of home, or a culinary adventurer ready to explore the Lone Star State, United Tastes of Texas packs plenty of history, travel, and food into one book!
