    Book Description
    Texas Monthly
    "Declared the Best Tastemaker of the Texas Century."

    From the Publisher
    Stanley Marcus declared Helen Corbitt "the Balenciaga of Food." Earl Wilson described her simply as "the best cook in Texas." Lyndon B. Johnson loved her stroganoff and wished she would accompony him and Lady Bird-to the White House to run the dining room. Helen Corbitt is to American cuisine what Julia Child is to French. Corbitt's genius was in presentations of new and unusual flavor combinations, colors, and even serving temperatures. She insisted on the finest, freshest ingredients, served with impeccable style. As Director of Food Services for Neiman Marcus, she travelled widely, bringing recipes back to tantalize Texans' tastebuds. Now, you can savor Helen Corbitt all over again-or perhaps for the first time-through a brand new Helen Corbitt cookbook. In The Best from Helen Corbitt's Kitchen, Patty MacDonald serves up more than 500 favorite recipes from Helen Corbitt's Cookbook, published in 1957, Helen Corbitt's Potluck (1962); Helen Corbitt Cooks for Company (1974); Helen Corbitt Cooks for Looks (1967); and Helen Corbitt's Greenhouse Cookbook, published after her death in 1978, as well as never before published recipes, many from her cooking schools.
