Cook’s Country in Houston

More food! Editors of the publication Cook’s Country regularly travel around the nation seeking out classic recipes they can share with their readers. The magazine’s executive food editor Bryan Roof was in Houston recently on one such road trip. He tells Houston Matters’ Edel Howlin what he came here looking for.
