Never let it be said that I missed an opportunity to toot my own horn. Well, and the horns of my colleagues. TM has a new book out–a melting pot with our best food stories of the last decade or so. Now you don’t have to feel guilty about tossing out all those moth-eaten old copies of the magazine–you can still read Anne Dingus on the scary Jell-O infatuation of the fifties, Prudence Macintosh on tart-tongued Texas tastemaker Helen Corbitt (the chef of the Zodiac Room, who introduced Texas to fine cuisine), and yours truly on what it’s like to be a restaurant critic (“Confessions of a Skinny Bitch”). I wish the book had pictures, but it’s still a fun read, even if I do say so myself. The publisher is the University of Texas Press. You can also get Texas Monthly on . . . Food on amazon.com.
