"Terry Thompson Anderson is clearly passionate about Texas terroir, and this enthusiasm is contagious in her beautiful new book Texas on the Table. On my next road trip, I can’t wait to visit some of the small farms, wineries, and other food producers she showcases. But, in the meantime, I look forward to cooking her well-crafted recipes whenever I’m craving that special taste of home."

With research and recipes, as well as insights and affection and a bottle of hot sauce in her pocket, she has produced a book that is a treasure for anyone interested in great food and wine."
