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. Austin food is also tacos and Tex-Mex, old fashioned Southern cooking, and street food and fine dining, with influences from all over the globe. And above all, it’s a source of intense pride and inspiration for chefs and diners alike.
 
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, Odd Duck’s sweet potato nachos, East Side King’s beet fries, and of course, smoked brisket that has people lining up to eat it—even in the Texas summer. Part cookbook, part souvenir, and 100 percent love letter, The Austin Cookbook is perfect for proud locals, visitors, and (t)ex-pats.

Industry Reviews

"the go-to guide to Austin eating [...] humourous essays on cooking techniques and the city's food culture." Publishers Weekly

"Austin has more than tacos and winning brisket. Forbes's extensive Texas restaurant experience comes through here as she brings in recipes from quintessential local haunts-including plenty of barbecue and Tex Mex staples." Tasting Table

"Easily the most colorful book of the season (yes, some pages are printed in millennial pink and we're not sorry about it) longtime cookbook reviewer Paula Forbes's first book is an enthusiastic love letter to her adopted hometown...the book can easily double as a restaurant guide." Food & Wine Online

"What rounds it out is Forbes's experience in restaurant reporting and cookbook criticism. She acknowledges differences in opinion while stating her own well-founded beliefs, explores long-held misconceptions, dedicates pages to brief histories of regional foodstuffs, and offers delightful asides from prominent Austin-based chefs. Through it all, she convinces the reader that eating (like she does) in Austin is a whole heckuva lot of fun." Eater magazine "thoughtfully written recipes, and stories about one of our country's greatest eating cities." GQ Online
