People from around the world have found a home in Texas, bringing with them a multiethnic feast replete with dishes that originated in Mexico, Europe, Africa, the Middle East, and Asia. In these pages you'll discover a magical place called Cuisine, Texas, where you can find all these favorite family recipes in one handy source.

Noted food writer Joanne Smith spent several years gathering the traditional recipes of every major ethnic group in Texas. As a result, Cuisine, Texas is a virtual encyclopedia of Texas cooking, with more than 375 recipes drawn from Native American, Spanish, Japanese, French, Cajun, Mexican, Tex-Mex, Anglo-American, African American, Thai, Czech, Swiss, Dutch, Jewish, Greek, German, Polish, Italian, British, Lebanese, Chinese, Russian, Vietnamese, and Scandinavian cooking.

The recipes cover the full range of foods, from appetizers to entrees, salads, vegetables, breads, and desserts, and all have clear, simple-to-follow instructions. Interspersed among them are engaging discussions of the different ethnic cuisines, flavored with delightful stories of some of the cooks who created or perfected the recipes. And to make your cooking even easier, Joanne Smith includes information on how to readily find imported and specialized ingredients and a word about health-conscious substitutions.

Cuisine, Texas, may not exist on the map, but it can be found everywhere that people enjoy good food and the fellowship that goes with it. Let this book be your one-stop source for all the tastes of Texas.
