Judyth Piazza interviews Etta Fraser, Co-Author of South Texas Cooking: 1850`s to Tomorrow
Radio Talk Show Host and Journalist chats with Etta Fraser, co-author of South Texas Cooking: 1850`s to Tomorrow on The American Perspective Radio Program.
South Texas Cooking: 1850`s to Tomorrow was published by Sarah Book Publishing to support the scholarship fund for Texas Garden Club - District VI.
All proceeds from the sale of this cookbook will be added to the Ethel W. Spears Scholarship Endowment Fund. At the time of her death in 1984, Ethel Spears created this Endowment in her will to establish a scholarship providing graduating students from the Lower Rio Grande Valley High Schools with funds to study a variety of plant associated careers. Established by District VI of the Texas Garden Clubs at their 1984 Fall Convention, scholarship recipients have many possible careers that will benefit the Lower Rio Grande Valley both now and in the future. Since 1986, twenty-six students, both male and female, have benefited from this scholarship, each making valuable contributions to their communities and the entire Lower Rio Grande Valley.
District VI wishes to thank all its members who assisted in and contributed to this Cookbook, and also express their gratitude to Sarah Book Publishing for enabling the completion of this project.
Section One presents contemporary recipes used every day during both periods of hardship and abundance, from the lives of early settlers to citizens concerns about today and the future.
Section Two offers a variety of recipes now commonly used in most present day Texas households. Over the last one hundred sixty years, families brought many of these recipes to Texas from other areas of the United States, Europe, Mexico and South America. There is a true fusion of these cultures in South Texas Cooking.
"We, the members of District VI of the Texas Garden Clubs, hope you enjoy this slightly different view of South Texas Cooking," said Etta.
