Helen Corbitt - The Mother of Texas Cooking

Corbitt’s Legacy

Helen Corbitt may have been a native of New York and at first fought the idea of moving to Texas. In fact, when asked to come to University Texas her reply was “Who the hell wants to go to Texas.” She spent the next 40 years teaching Texas citizens how to enjoy the pleasure of good food but her five cookbooks taught an entire generation of Texans to turn cook.
