Some of you have been asking if my new book will be ready in time for Christmas. The Homesick Texan’s Family Table will not be published until April 1, 2014, but it is available for preorders.
The Homesick Texan’s Family Table will be available wherever books are sold and if you do preorder, you’ll be one of the first to receive it! You can order it from some of these fine establishments:
Barnes & Noble
If you do choose to order it for someone as a gift, here are some cards you can download to let the recipient know that it’s on its way. Just click on the image and it will take you to a separate page where you can print it or move it to your desktop:
I think it's a mighty fine book but of course, I'm biased. So in case you were wondering, here's what some other folks have had to say:
“Lisa Fain’s new book, The Homesick Texan’s Family Table, takes readers back to the origins of her inspiration—the family celebrations and community gatherings where platters of enchiladas, bowls of ranch-style beans, and great conversations combine to create lasting memories. It’s a magical place that’s changed the way we entertain—bring on the chiles, the masa, the chorizo!”
—Matt Lee and Ted Lee, authors of the Lee Bros. Charleston Kitchen
“Who doesn’t want to wake up to chilaquiles, enjoy a spicy soup for lunch, dive into a plate of peppery ribs, and finish up with a delicious, zippy version of cowboy cookies? With Lisa Fain’s recipes, anybody, anytime, anywhere can rustle up down-home Tex-Mex fare— be it for an everyday meal or a special celebration. Now I just need a Texas-sized table to hold it all!”
—David Lebovitz, author of My Paris Kitchen and The Sweet Life in Paris
“I’ve always admired Lisa Fain’s remarkable ability to express sentiment through flavor—and with her latest book, this talent is on full display. Her beautifully photographed recipes inspired me to not only revisit some of my own family favorites (which I dressed up with the help of the salsas, jams, and in her ‘Accompaniments’ chapter), but also introduce her family’s classic flavors into my home. Hello, Frito Salad!”
—Martha Foose, author of Screen Doors and Sweet Tea and A Southerly Course
“She had us at potluck! The fact that Lisa Fain says her most memorable meal was a family potluck warms our heart. We share with her a mutual desire to get people back around the table, since enjoying a meal with family and friends really is the best way to create lasting memories. Lisa invites you in with stories of her family and their connection to the recipes, and her warm, personal writing envelops you like a comforting blanket.”
—Crystal Cook and Sandy Pollock, authors of The Casserole Queens Cookbook
My publisher hasn’t given me any preview page images just yet, but as soon as I have them I’ll post them on the site. That said, I’m real excited about my new book and can’t wait to share more with you!
