Tacos go uptown in the hands of Dean Fearing. All it takes is a little lobster, jalapeño-spiked cheese, fresh spinach, and Fearing’s snappy yellow-tomato salsa.

This new, beautifully photographed compendium by Arlene Feltman-Sailhac focuses on nine masters of Southwestern cuisine. Other Texas chefs spotlighted are Robert Del Grande of Houston’s Cafe Annie and Stephan Pyles of Dallas’ Star Canyon. A signature dish of Dallas’ Mansion on Turtle Creek, these tony tacos are featured in De Gustibus Presents the Great Cooks’ Cookbooks: Southwest Cooking.
