Overview

The Texas Hill County: A Food and Wine Lover's Paradise takes readers on a gustatory tour of this picturesque Central Texas region of rolling hills, spring-fed streams, and good eats. One of the state's most popular travel destinations, the Hill Country is fast becoming a magnet for agricultural tourism. Visitors come here to follow the lavender trails, pick peaches and apples, buy fresh-pressed olive oil, sample the offerings at award-winning wineries, and have a meal in the unique eateries from chic restaurants with world-class dishes on the menu to back-country roadhouses famous for barbecue and hamburgers. Professional chef and cookbook author Terry Thompson-Anderson has explored every corner of the eighteen-county region, with its quaint communities and specialty farms, and discovered more than one hundred establishments that are sure to please the palate. More than a travel guide, the book is also filled with recipes that she has gathered from proprietors or developed using local food products. Sandy Wilson's stunning full-color photographs capture the diversity of the Hill Country eating experience, with its berry patches and orchards, roadside stands, artisan bakeries, boutique wineries, and vast array of restaurants serving both traditional and haute cuisine. Welcome to the rich bounty of the Hill Country, where you're in for some remarkable food finds. If this is your first visit, we bet it won't be your last!

Read an Excerpt

Pick a road - any road, a county road, a ranch road. Chances are good that somewhere down that undulating ribbon of road, you'll come upon some remarkable Texas Hill Country food finds: a farm stand selling fresh, homegrown produce; a goat farmer selling hand-crafted goat cheeses; ranchers selling sausages made from game meats; a brewery producing fine beer in the European style of the region's founders; a winery creating world-class wines from grapes grown in Texas; honey processors selling honey from bees who feast on the region's largesse of richly hued wildflowers; peach orchards with roadside stands selling fresh peaches, peach ice cream, peach cobbler, and anything else that can be made from a peach; apple orchards where you can purchase many varieties of fresh apples, apple cider, and apple pies as big as washtubs.
