BOOK DESCRIPTION
Houston’s dining scene is a culinary tapestry of local and international food traditions. Whether it’s barbecue, Southern comfort food, or fine dining, H-town is emerging as a foodie destination—there has never been a more exciting time to eat in the Bayou City. Houston Cooks is an exciting collection of eighty signature dishes from forty of the city’s leading restaurants. Designed with the home cook in mind, this exciting anthology celebrates a vibrant culinary scene with dishes including Harold in the Heights’ shrimp and grits, Harlem Road BBQ’s savory lamb chops, The Dunlavy’s chocolate-covered cherry pie with stout… and so much more. Houston is regarded as one of the best food cities in the country and with this book, readers can re-create recipes from their favorite restaurants in the comfort of their own homes.
