I have lived in Texas and like everybody have my own Texas
on August 25, 2014
I have lived in Texas and like everybody have my own Texas. Mine did not always (though often) include the kinds of foods I found in this book, at least in the quantity in which they're represented. If you like Tex-Mex, this is for you; if you want more of Texas, maybe not so much. The writing, however, is good, the personality of the writer very pleasant. Next edition, I'd venture further afield across more of the state and its specialties. I think the NY Times gave it a better rating than I did. On the one hand, they're very good. On the other, many of them haven't lived in Texas. It's a pretty good book, and with broader coverage would be even better.
