Cowgirl Chef features more than 100 of Ellise Pierce's inspired recipes, along with the story of a homesick Texan's adventures in Paris. Cowgirl Tacos, her Tex-Mex catering company in Paris, appealed to other Americans who missed the flavors of home. But she did more than start a company - she created a unique cuisine that weds the spicy chile peppers and tortillas of Texas with the delicate French traditions of quiche, tart, and soufflé.

Moving to Paris was the best bad decision that Texan Ellise Pierce ever made. Wooed to the city by a Frenchman, she soon found herself with just 100 euros in her bank account. So she launched a last-ditch effort to stay in the City of Light: She started her own catering business and began teaching other American expats how to re-create flavors from home. Using French ingredients and techniques from both sides of the Atlantic, she did more than found a culinary company-she created a unique style of cooking that's part Texas, part French, and all Cowgirl.
