David Lebovitz, author of The Sweet Life in Paris
"From mango salsa to madeleines (with cornmeal, of course), in Cowgirl Chef: Texas Cooking with a French Accent, Texas and Paris meet deliciously with recipes that spice up the French classics -- and give a little bit of savoir-faire to Tex-Mex favorites!"
Clotilde Dusoulier, author of ChocolateAndZucchini.com and Clotilde's Edible Adventures in Paris
"You can take the cowgirl out of Texas and into a Paris kitchen, but her Southern roots will always show. In Ellise Pierce's lovable book, she tells us about embracing a new culinary culture while nurturing her own heritage, and her tempting recipes show you how to savor the best of both worlds."
Dorie Greenspan, author of Around My French Table
“Ellise cooks like a cowgirl (albeit a French cowgirl with a perfectly tied silk scarf around her neck) and writes like your best friend. Whether you’re in France or America, you’d be hard pressed to find a better companion in the kitchen.”
Cheryl Lu- Lien Tan, author of A Tiger in the Kitchen: A Memoir of Food and Family
“A charming tale of moving to Paris for love—and staying for food. Ellise Pierce’s delicious accounts of weaving together Texas and French cuisines will leave you hungry. But what truly satisfies are the lovely stories that bind them all together.
"Although simple and more classic than creative, the recipes are solid and should satisfy readers looking for a glimpse into a Texan expat’s home cooking."
“Pierce's self discovery is a foodie's gain. Her charming book, filled with humorous and romantic stories in Paris, is steadfastly rooted in Texas.”
“Delightful and delicious.”
A Traveler’s Library.com
“Ellise Pierce is a real writer as well as a gifted cook and innovator. That makes Cowgirl Chef the kind of cookbook that you can sit down and read cover to cover. And the very talented photographer Steve Legato, makes me want to run right back to Paris and shop in an open air market.”
Ellise Pierce chronicles her expat adventures in recipes and stories on her blog, CowgirlChef.com, and in her Cowgirl Chef column, which runs in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram and is distributed to more than 300 newspapers. She has written for Newsweek, People, and Texas Monthly. Ellise lives in Paris and makes frequent trips back home to Dallas to see family and friends . . . and to stock up on jalapenos.
I doubt if I will refer back to this book for any recipes. Too many really great cookbooks out there, with photos to entice the reader.Published 4 months ago by Nancy
I have more than 200 cookbooks and this is one of few I am considering throwing away. Many recipes are not very original or necessary (who needs another recipe for minestrone?). Read morePublished 7 months ago by marcella

I am fascinated by the Tex-Mex genre. For cookbook collectors,I was hesitant. However, this offers quite a few new wrinkles and several creative ideas to try immediately.Published on December 21, 2012 by Happydays
