Flashback Friday: Top Taste Awards

Take a step back in Dallas dining history.

The August 2000 issue of D Magazine pays homage to a hundred of the most notable contributors to the Dallas dining scene. The piece highlights everything from Fogo de Chao’s “costume design,” to deep fried miniature sawagani crabs at Teppo. Nancy Nichols, who wrote the entire twenty-four page piece by herself, won a gold medal from CRMA — the City and Regional Magazine Association — for the story. Nichols was also the mastermind behind the risqué cover, inspired from Herb Albert and the Tijuana Brass’ 1965 album, Whipped Cream & Other Delights. However, the model was actually covered in shaving cream for the shoot.
