José R. Ralat, C&I Food & Drink Editor, “Taste of the West” (p. 110) Photographer Robert Strickland and I once sat for a multicourse meal — 10 to 14 courses, I don’t know, I lost count — highlighting charcuterie and cocktail pairings at Cured in San Antonio. It was perhaps the richest dinner I’ve ever had the pleasure of experiencing for an assignment (“Cured,” October 2014). We began to nod off at points.

IF THERE’S A PRINCIPAL TAKEAWAY FROM the second annual Taste of the West feature (page 110), it’s that we don’t just eat for sustenance and nourishment. Even as we all move toward greater awareness of nutritional health and the fight against obesity, we still hang on to our own time-tested food traditions, and we travel far and wide to find the cultural dishes that intrigue us — calorie counts be damned. In my extended family in Texas, comfort food endures as a form of nonverbal communication. When I was growing up, we paid weekly Sunday visits to my maternal grandmother, Bernice, and we were always met with an incredible dinner, one she’d been minding since the crack of dawn. Every buttery Southern side you could think of was crammed onto that dining…

I Can’t Get Yellowstone! The [July edition featured] Kevin Costner’s series, Yellowstone. He is one of my favorite actors and I try to watch everything he is in. I was looking forward to watching. I am of the generation that grew up with westerns. However, I have now found out that we can’t get the Paramount Network in our area. Do you know if it might be offered on other channels in the near future? — Sandra Todd, Port Hope, Ontario From the editors: At press time we were awaiting a DVD date, but the show is online at Apple’s iTunes Store and Amazon Prime Video.

Leathers With Style You learn a few things after 40 years in the leather business — which is all too evident at Leathers With Style in Fredericksburg, Texas, where industry veteran John Roming stocks the shelves with his favorite artisan leather finds. “He started in his teenage years working in the leather industry, but then he got out of it for awhile,” says Roming’s daughter, Jamie Kronk. “He was very successful at starting businesses and then moving on to his next adventure. But then he was ready to get back to where his passion stems from, and that’s how Leathers With Style started.” Leathers With Style is a curated collection of handcrafted leather handbags, wallets, belts, and accessories that began on the road, with temporary booths at rodeos in Houston and Fort Worth,…
