The Delicious Mischief Texas Cookbook

$29.95 $20.97

John DeMers

In these lively, often-humorous pages, DeMers recounts how this “shy” writer became the radio host of a high-energy, irreverent, no-pinkie-raised food and wine show called Delicious Mischief years before its move from Louisiana to Texas—before it, traded jambalaya for brisket.

This book describes John’s efforts to make his beloved chicken and sausage gumbo in the Far West Texas town of Marfa, his encounter with stone crab soup in Everglades City, Florida, the amazing salad dressing that’s apparently made only at the bottom of the Grand Canyon, and, of course, his day-to-day epiphanies within favorite world cuisines: Italian, Greek, French, Spanish, Tex-Mex, Latin American, and every conceivable version of Asian.
