|When an occasion calls for a little potluck, there’s no need to panic anymore. In Perennial Favorites, creative and talented cooks, entertainers, gardeners and community leaders from America’s 4th largest city share the secrets of their easily portable signature dishes. The Houston Garden Club is well known for its work in horticultural beautification, restoration and preservation in the city. Their annual Bulb and Plant Mart draws thousands of gardeners and horticulturalists from the extended metropolitan area and around the state. Hundreds of volunteers are hosted in style each day for breakfast, lunch and supper, with these delicious recipes.
Perennial Favorites: easy recipes for food you can pack up to take to the ranch, football game tailgate, sailing on the bay, hiking in the mountains, casual parties or elegant dinners.
These dishes have become “perennial favorites” because they are the comfort foods that can nourish a bereaved friend, cheer up a sick colleague, or become mainstays at your family reunions. Tuck this collection of favorite treats into your bag, and next time you gather with friends you’ll share one of the important legacies of The Garden Club of Houston’s Bulb & Plant Mart.
