Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Lovers of opinionated erudition on food will devour this beautifully selected anthology. Editor Ferrone, having worked with James Beard on books and numerous articles, has applied his longitudinal perspective in collecting and assembling the culinary master's essays on everything from main courses to condiments; dining in restaurants, hospitals, and al fresco; libations and desserts; and broader philosophical concerns on gastronomy. Each chapter has captured Beard's feeling for food, his wicked sense of humor, his consummate excellence as a writer, and even his love of controversyAwho else would advocate electric over gas stoves? The 150 recipes cover the globe and honor the palate. Most of all, though, this is the perfect book for those who only have time to read in bits but wants a quick shot of wit along with their culinary fantasies. Highly recommended for all culinary collections.AWendy Miller, Lexington P.L., KY

James Beard (1903­-1985) was an American cookbook author, syndicated columnist, teacher, and television personality. Designated the "dean of American cookery" by the New York Times, Beard laid the foundations for generations of amateur and professional food enthusiasts. After publishing his first cookbook in 1940, Beard went on to host the NBC cooking show I Love to Eat. In 1955 he founded the James Beard Cooking School, where he taught for many years. Over the course of his career, Beard wrote countless cookbooks, including several seminal works, and he inspired and influenced chefs throughout the world. His legacy lives on through the James Beard Foundation, established in his honor to provide scholarships and awards recognizing excellence in the culinary arts.
