Baxter’s in Bastrop on Austin DM

Posted on

AUSTIN: Saturdays 10-11 a.m. on Talk 1370

Bastrop isn’t exactly world-renowned as a culinary destination; but if Terri Knop and executive chef Preston Higgins have their way, people might start coming from miles around to eat at Baxter’s on Main. Working within a building from the 1890s, the duo serves up persuasive arguments that high-quality French and Italian food can be served here, all channeled through a distinct Texas food personality. Higgins should know – since he grew up in Bastrop. In our Grape & Grain tasting segment, we travel even farther from Austin than Bastrop – to the Russian River Valley of Sonoma, for a sitdown at the ranch with Kate MacMurray. The ever-vivacious redhead is always good for excellent pinot gris and even more excellent pinot noir, served with memories of her father, the late film and TV star Fred MacMurray.
