Do you live to eat? Want to meet other foodies and talk about food and cooking? Love collecting cookbooks and trying new recipes? You’ll love TBSP’s Cookbook Club!
A cookbook club is a themed potluck where everyone brings a different dish from the same book.
This month, we’re reading and cooking from “The Homesick Texan” by Lisa Fain, author of the popular food blog “Homesick Texan”!
When Lisa Fain, a seventh-generation Texan, moved to New York City, she missed the big sky, the bluebonnets in spring, Friday night football, and her family’s farm. But most of all, she missed the foods she’d grown up with. Like Texas itself, the recipes in this book are varied and diverse, all filled with Fain’s signature twists. You might try making her version of Salpicon, a cool shredded beef salad found in El Paso – or fresh takes on Texan classics like Coffee-Chipotle Oven Brisket and Guajillo-Chili Fish Tacos. With more than 125 recipes, The Homesick Texan offers a true taste of the Lone Star State. So pull up a chair – everyone’s welcome!
The Tablespoon Chefs will supplement the meal with additional sides and pair them with great wines throughout the meal. All you have to do is bring your favorite dish from the book and show up ready to eat, drink, and meet other foodies!
