The Texas Hill Country Cookbook: A Taste of Provence

The Texas Hill Country Cookbook: A Taste of Provence (Globe Pequot Press, 2007). While traveling in Texas, I met Chef Scott Cohen who loves the Texas Hill Country because it gives him access to the same king of fresh local food he found in Provence where he trained. Foodies will discover there is more to Texas than BBQ and Tex-Mex. Chef Cohen now directs the cuisine at Pavil Brasseries in San Antonio.
