About this item

Join experienced food writer Nola McKey, former editor at Texas Highways, on a journey through Texas history—through food! In this collection of more than one hundred recipes, Texans share the dishes they inherited from their ancestors and the family stories and traditions that accompany them. With a strong focus on Texas’ cultural diversity—featuring Polish cheese pie, Czech sauerkraut, Chinese fried rice, Mexicancaldo, Italian pizzelle, African American purple hull peas, and German egg noodles—McKey documents the culinary impact of immigrants from around the globe.But this book is not for foodies alone; history enthusiasts will appreciate the snapshots of daily Texan life, captured in the narratives accompanying the recipes and spanning more than a century.Told primarily in the words of today’s cooks, these multigenerational family memories can take anyone on a trip down memory lane, back to a beloved grandmother’s kitchen or great-aunt’s holiday table. Included are recommendations for Texas museums and festivals where interested readers can learn more about many of the foods and cultures featured in this book. Additionally, McKey provides tips for preserving your own family recipes and for recording the heritage surrounding a special dish.Illustrated with family photos and original watercolors by Cora McKown, From Tea Cakes to Tamales will quickly itself become a Texan family heirloom.
