Pyles, chef and owner of Dallas's acclaimed Routh Street Cafe and Baby Routh, was one of the "founders" of Southwestern cuisine, along with Dean Fearing ( Dean Fearing's Southwest Cuisine , LJ 10/15/90) and Robert Del Grane, and their champion, Anne Lindsay Greer ( Foods of the Sun , LJ 2/15/88). His creative dishes blend elements of Southern homestyle cooking, sophisticated Southwestern fare, Mexican and Tex-Mex food, and Cajun and Creole cookery, reflecting as well "apprenticeships" at his family's truck-stop restaurants followed by classic French training. Thus, the 200-plus recipes he presents here include Squash Blossom Soup with Candied Lime, Blue Corn Polenta with Oysters and Ancho Cream, and Pecan Souffle with Bourbon Butter. At heart, this is a chef's book, with many dishes requiring fairly extensive preparation, but the recipes are clearly written and accessible. Delicious and inventive food from a talented chef; recommended for most collections. BOMC HomeStyle selection.
