Product Description

From Library Journal

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.

From the Publisher

There's much more to Lone Star cooking than Tex-Mex and barbecue, and in this wide-ranging book, the award-winning chef of Dallas's Routh Street Cafe presents 150 eclectic, sophisticated Texas recipes.

Hell yeah! This is what Texas cuisine is all about. If you like Rick Bayless or Jane Butel, then you will definitely be impressed by this book. The recipes are complex and rewarding as Stephan creates dishes that are both original and traditional. Best thing is that he insists on using native southwestern ingredients in all his recipes. Mas tequila, baby!

The Best Cookbook I Own.....Period Dec 26 2004
By D. Benjamin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I own six other cookbooks and often my girlfriend has told me just use this one. Pyles is a mastermind. Elaborate but easy to follow recipes. Deep history and personal experiences make this not just a cookbook but a Texas experience. Some favorites are Smoke Pheasant Salad with Texas Goat Cheese, Whole Wheat Tortillas, Barbequed Duck Tacos and Vanilla Bean Ice Cream. You can not miss with this book!!

Culinary brilliance Aug. 23 2008
By Takas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
If you're looking for a book that covers the basics of Southwestern cooking in simple and easy-to-apple recipes, there are plenty of good options out there. This isn't one of them. Pyles's recipes tend to be very time-consuming and, frankly, over the top. That said, when it comes to sheer culinary brilliance, I've seldom read a cookbook that rivals this one, and have never once read one that surpasses it.

For just one example, Pyles knows how to use chiles with an astonishing finesse. If you find it hard to believe that chiles could contribute something to a dessert besides a little menu-skimming novelty, his ancho-infused flourless chocolate cake might change your mind. Cascabel aioli, chipotle brioche, pasilla-corn salsa... each one uses the strengths of the respective chile expertly and artistically.

That's just one example, and you can find others on every page of this book. If you need good recipes, you can probably do better. If you're looking for ideas and inspiration, this is as good as it gets.

I have had the pleasure to stage (and get paid for it!) with Chef Pyles at his restaurant in Dallas, Texas and I can tell you that if you like to prepare some of the recipes featured on his menu at Stephan Pyles - buy the book. It is an indispensible resource to get to know and understand Chef Pyles's approach to Southwestern cuisine. The recipes range from the time consuming to the easy-breasy and none will disappoint.
