Cooking Texas Style
Tenth Anniversary Edition

By Candy Wagner and Sandra Marquez


Table of Contents and Excerpt


Praise for the first edition:

"By far the best...authentic book about regional cooking in Texas that I have seen."

—M. F. K. Fisher

"... the best way to describe it is simply to say, try it, because you'll find all sorts of riches. This is an imaginative concept, extremely well realized."

Southwest Review

Just remembering the crispy fried chicken and luscious peach cobblers a grandmother or aunt used to make can set your mouth watering. And since remembering is no substitute for eating, cooks across the country have turned to Cooking Texas Style to find recipes for the "comfort foods" we love best. In just ten years, public acclaim has made this collection of favorite family recipes the standard source for traditional Texas cooking.

Here are over three hundred tasty recipes from the kitchens of Candy Wagner and Sandra Marquez, including guacamole, chili, chicken-fried steak, barbecue, and cornbread hot with jalapeños. Over sixty recipes are new to this edition, while others present novel, exciting ways to prepare old favorites such as Tortilla Soup, Fajitas, and Chicken and Dumplings. Essential for everyone interested in cooking—and eating—Texas style, all these recipes are clearly explained, simple to prepare, and simply delicious.

Born in San Antonio, sisters Candy Wagner and Sandra Marquez are sixth-generation Texans who trace their ancestry back to the German pioneers who first settled New Braunfels.
