The Best from Helen Corbitt's Kitchens (Evelyn Oppenheimer Series #1) (Paperback)
Helen Corbitt is to American cuisine what Julia Child is to French. She insisted on the finest, freshest ingredients, served with impeccable style. As Director of Food Services for Neiman Marcus’s Zodiac Room, she dazzled celebrities and dignitaries who flocked there for tantalizing cuisine. In The Best from Helen Corbitt’s Kitchens, Patty MacDonald serves up more than 500 favorite recipes from Helen Corbitt’s Cookbook and her four later cookbooks, as well as many never before published recipes from her cooking schools.
“A must-have for any serious collector of Texas cookbooks.”—Austin Chronicle
“Helen Corbitt was of another generation, but many of her recipes live on in the Lone Star State, as do her fans.”—Austin American-Statesman
“It says a lot about Corbitt that more than two decades after her death, cooks still treasure her recipes. . . . In Texas, every kitchen belongs to Helen Corbitt.”—Houston Chronicle
