his is our annual food and wine issue which always ranks as one of our favorites, both editorially as well as visually. A visit to the farmers market to touch, smell and taste some amazing Texas summer fruit, helped make the decision to cover grilled fruit desserts in “Topping the Texas Grill” (page 25). We’ve rounded up leaders in the Texas coffee roasting industry who are creating some unique java experiences for coffee lovers. To satisfy your inner-barista, you’ll want to venture over to “Roasted Route to Texas’ Gourmet Coffee” (page 66) where you can map out your own java road-trip. We’re thrilled to launch three new departments in this issue. “In The Mix” (page16) celebrates the fun and ease of the specialty cocktail; “Cigar Notes” (page 55) we share the experience behind smoking a Padron 1964 Anniversary Series Exclusivo; for the fashionisto, our men’s “Style” (page 58) is a round-up of men’s summer fashion must-haves. Enjoy!
