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

Praise For…

"Corbitt presided over the Zodiac Room from 1955 to 1969, drawing scores of loyal customers and bringing the city itself a new level of dining sophistication. . . . [The book has] certain magical recipes: the poppy seed dressing, of course, and the orange souffle. The chicken salad with grapes. Miss Corbitt's bouillabaisse, which 'tastes like Marseilles out your back door.'"--Dallas Morning News
