The Austin Cookbook: Recipes and Stories from Deep in the Heart of Texas


The story of Austin food is equal parts deep Texan traditions and a booming food scene. It is this atmosphere that has fostered some of the hottest restaurants in the country, a lively food truck community, and a renaissance in the most Texan of foods: barbecue.

Organized by Austin’s “major food groups”—like barbecue, tacos, and Tex-Mex—
The Austin Cookbook explores the roots of Texas food traditions and the restaurants that are reinventing them, revealing the secrets to:

  • Bob Armstrong Dip
  • Chile con Carne Enchiladas
  • Chicken Fried Steak with Cream Gravy
  • Lucy’s Fried Chicken
  • Parkside Macaroni
  • Baked Oysters
  • Cadillac Bar Pie
  • Oxtail Pappardelle with Rutabaga
  • Grilled Quail with Green Mole
  • Sweet Potato Nachos
  • Huevos Rancheros
  • Texas Benedict
  • And more!

With a diverse food scene and influences from all over the globe, Austin food is Tex-Mex, old-fashioned Southern cooking, street food, fine dining, and beyond. And above all, it’s a source of intense pride and inspiration for chefs and diners alike
