Texas Cookbook - Texas is a big state and many of its features are on a grand scale. Texas offers a variety of climates and terrains-sunny seacoasts, mile-high mountains, … teeming bayous, dense forests, cactus-studded deserts, and grassy plains. Texas is big cities, vast ranches, huge farms, petroleum production and burgeoning high-tech industries. Texas is great food. From the indigenous population to the coming of the Europeans and wave after wave of immigrants. Some food styles were imported from other parts of the United States along with the migrations from the South, the Midwest and the East.
Other cuisines traveled with new Texans from the south; Texas is a vigorous variety of food styles. And, it makes use of such home-grown produce as chile peppers, black-eyed beans, grapefruit, pecans and peanuts, fish and shrimp from the gulf, beef from Texas-size herds and barbecued foods that use native mesquite for fuel and smoke.

Beaumont native Wanda Landrey began her research for this book with an investigation of her own family history and the days when her grandparents and great-grandparents ran the Commercial Hotel in the Big Thicket hamlet of Kountze. From there, she visited sites of the hotels and boarding houses that flourished in the timber-cutting and wildcatting heyday of the early 20th century, gathering family photos, anecdotes, and heirloom recipes along the way.
The Big Thicket area of Texas was once one of the most densely forested areas in the U. The original Thicket was generally considered to be an expanse of dense timber stretching about 50 miles north and northwest of Beaumont. Early settlers found the Thicket a lush, bountiful place in which to live. In its pristine state, it was a very good provider. In it were hardwoods for cabin and furniture building; rich soil for gardens; plentiful game, nuts, and berries; plus creeks, bayous, and rivers filled with fish.
By the s, logging companies and railroads brought to the Thicket many new people and new foodways. After the turn of the century, oil was discovered in the area, bringing yet another influx of travelers who had to be housed and fed. Each chapter of the book presents a new hotel with pictures, reminiscences, and recipes.
The Vines Hotel was also the home of Lance Rosier, a Big Thicket native and self-taught naturalist who was a guiding force in the environmental conservation movement that finally set aside a fraction of the area as the Big Thicket Natural Preserve. Most of the lush, verdant Big Thicket is gone now, the victim of progress and timber clear-cutting.
