Tex-Mex Cookbook| Ford Fry & Jessica Dupuy
Tex-Mex is more than just a flavor-packed cookbook of tried and true recipes for comfort-food favorites like nachos, fajitas, and chili—it’s a way of life.
“In Tex-Mex, Ford takes us to the place he was born and raised to show us a visionary guide to that timeless cooking and disclosing the secrets to what I call ‘the other Southern cuisine.’”—Hugh Acheson
“[Fry] knows what he’s talking about. His Tex-Mex leans toward a Houston-style . . . but the recipes in Tex-Mex will be familiar to devotees of the cuisine. . . . I’d also recommend this book to homesick Texpats. Fry provides recipes for old-fashioned Texas comfort food, including a San Antonio–inspired breakfast taco salsa, drive-thru–style chicken al carbón, and a dang good flour tortilla. Those who live more than a thousand miles from the closest breakfast taco truck will soon be happily clutching a chorizo-egg-and-cheese, thanks to these recipes.”—Texas Monthly
“Fry, a native Texan now living in Atlanta who runs a group of eleven restaurants, and food writer Dupuy offer up 85 recipes in this solid and enticing book. . . . Short histories of classic foods like queso and fajitas are woven throughout, as are tantalizing photos of colorful sauces and salt-rimmed margaritas. Fry and Dupuy add an exciting kick to border cuisine.”—Publishers Weekly
