For those who want to give the gift of reading this Christmas, My Table's SideDish has some local and national book recommendations. On the list is Houston restaurateur Tracy Vaught's Backstreet Kitchen: "This beautiful new cookbook commemorates the 30th Anniversary of Backstreet Café, a Houston institution opened by Tracy Vaught. In addition to more than 100 recipes from Backstreet's most loved menu items and seasonal dishes, the book also serves as a memoir for long time staff members, including the wonderful love story of Vaught meeting her future husband (and James Beard nominee) Hugo Ortega at the restaurant where he found a job as a dishwasher soon after his arrival from Mexico."
