Every year on SideDish, we like to devote our energy to supporting small local food businesses here in DFW. For the twelve days, we’ll be highlighting jams, jellies, pies, classes, wines, coffees, teas, and basically any food product made locally on Dallas (or close to it) soil. Today is Cookbook Day. If you’ve got a product that you want included, send me an email with your information and a picture. This list will often be updated, so don’t fret about deadlines. We’re here to serve you guys.
I talked to Edible DFW editor, Terri Taylor, the other day about this cookbook. It was the craziest thing she’s ever done, she said. But also the best thing she could’ve done for our North Texas community. This perfect holiday gift is a collection of recipes and profiles of people in North Texas who love food. Try out Tim Byres’ pickled green beans and carrots with blistered tomatoes, or Paula Lambert’s recipe for roasted beets, feta, and frisée salad. Katherine Clapner has her Turkish coffee truffles recipe, and there are instructions for a Texas grapefruit pie by Kate Nelson of Emporium Pies. It’s all here in one book. (A hidden bonus: two beautiful vintage maps are located inside the removable book jacket.)
