Diddy T’s Texas Corn Bread (my family recipe)

My mother, affectionately known as Diddy, regularly made this rich Texas Corn Bread when I was growing up in the 1950’s. Texas stone-ground cornmeal, creamed corn, Poblano peppers, fire-roasted mild peppers, cheddar cheese, jalapenos and sour cream, baked and served in a Texas-shaped cast-iron cornbread pan. Available only with the purchase of an entree. Serves 4 people nicely. Includes 1/2 pound of Falfurrias Texas butter.

    Could you tell me the pricing of the paella for two and how much notice you need for ordering? Also where is the location for pick-up?

      Hi Margaret! We typically do not prepare paella for “pick up”. It is usually cooked onsite. We do not prepare for fewer than four due to the paella pan size and it is cooked outdoors onsite. Cost is $150 cooked onsite. We suggest you make reservation at El Meson, West U – Pedro Garcia is a chef extraordinaire. Thank you for your interest!
