“This book is rich with gravitas and gravy. But its true strength is the broad cast of previously unheralded characters-from Vietnamese pho masters in Houston to chicken-fried steak pioneers in Paradise-whose family histories and recipes tell us what it means to claim a Texas kitchen as your own.”
-John T Edge, series editor, Cornbread Nation: The Best of Southern Food Writing

“With a brilliant eye for detail, master storyteller Robb Walsh delivers a remarkable portrait of Lone Star food. Recipe by recipe, he shows that Texas is its own country, with its own reasons and contradictions and, thankfully, one of the purest and most unique cuisines in the continental United States.”
-Molly O’Neill, author of One Big Table: A Portrait of American Cooking

“Robb Walsh is the Homer of Brisket, the great storyteller of Texas food. Spending half a day with him, eating breakfast tacos, chicken-fried steak, and Galveston oysters, is getting a history lesson, adventure tale, and potential heart stoppage all at once. Luckily, with this book, you can pace yourself.”
-Francis Lam, Features Editor, Gilt Taste

“Robb Walsh’s new book has ‘Eat Me!’ written all over it.”
-Kinky Friedman
