Cordua: Foods of the Americas from the Legendary Texas Restaurant Family
by David Cordua, Michael Cordua,  with John DeMers

A quarter century ago, a Nicaraguan born in the American Canal Zone became a chef with a restaurant in Houston, Texas. That eatery, called Churrascos after a style of beef cookery then unknown in the United States, became a hit despite its most obvious failing: it was Latin but not Tex-Mex, and involved no tacos, enchiladas, or burritos. The Cordúa family became a Texas restaurant legend, the success story behind several locations of Churrascos, the soaring Artista at Houston's Hobby Center for the Performing Arts, the casual-fun Amazon Grill, and what perhaps is the family's ultimate culinary and architectural signature, Americas. This book, marking their twenty-fifth anniversary, celebrates their story and their vision”and generously shares their iconic recipes.
