Weekend Cooking: Dean Fearing and The Texas Food Bible

He's not from Texas.

And he never meant to become a cook.

But aren't we glad he did?

Dean Fearing opened the first white tablecloth American cuisine restaurant in 1981 in Dallas. He cooked for us at the Texas Book Festival. 

He's seen every new trend in cooking come and go. 

What's the next wave in cooking, you ask? "Everyone's going to be reading The Texas Food Bible," he boldly replies.

  8. The Texas Food Bible has just been added to my shopping list -- for my husband. Sounds like the perfect gift for someone who loves to cook, especially Texas and Tex-Mex foods. I'm getting hungry just thinking about it! Pass the fried okra, please.
    Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving a comment.
