A former caterer, Rather (The Pastry Queen) knows how to entertain, explain and keep things fun and manageable. This entertaining title for home cooks by the Texas native is full of creative and fun dishes that span the state. The six chapters are broken down by region and event and include Gulf Coast Beach Bash; San Antonio Tex-Mex Fiesta; and West Texas Dinner Party. Recipes for appetizers, mains, side dishes, desserts and cocktails showcase seasonal produce and include designated Party Express selections that can be prepared in an hour or less. Southern classics such as spoon bread, seafood gumbo, chicken-fried steak and sweet tea are balanced with Mexican and Mexican-inspired dishes such as posole, fajitas and chiles rellenos. Kitschy selections like hostess-with-mostest cupcakes, Corona sorbet and layered salad in a jar add to the mix. Color photos and essays on Texas traditions, residents and life give readers a feel for not only the big, bold flavors but the unique spirit of the Lone Star state. (Oct.)
