From a small catering business in Amarillo to their present incarnation in Austin, where they’ve feted British royalty (Prince Charles) and Texas common folk, Gourmet Gals are all over the map. This simple cobbler has an appealing, almost puddinglike consistency. “With the trends in Southwestern cuisine, we’ve kind of overlooked simplicity,” says original Gal Besty Nozick. “This recipe is so just-what-it-is.”
