By Yvonne Hartmann —
Terry Thompson-Anderson’s newest release is more than just a cookbook.
“Texas on the Table” is 448 pages filled with 150 new and classic recipes along with stories of people — the farmers, ranchers, shrimpers, cheese-makers, winemakers and chefs — who inspired the recipes and who are changing the taste of Texas food.
Also featured in the book are 189 color and 14 black and white photos taken by Thompson-Anderson’s sister, Sandy Wilson of Houston.
The book also includes a number of recipes from some of the state’s most renowned chefs.
“This is so much more than a cookbook,” Thompson-Anderson said. “It took us three years and 30,000 miles.”
“We enjoyed working together so much and meeting all of the fascinating people in this book who opened their homes, their hearts and their businesses,” Thompson-Anderson said. “Without them, the book would be just another collection of recipes.”
