Product Description

From Library Journal

Throughout the mid-1970s, the late Beard wrote a monthly column for American Airlines' in-flight magazine, American Way. The columns, designed as cooking lessons, have not been gathered together until now--so here is an unexpected treat for Beard's many, many fans. He begins with the basics: knives, the difference between a simmer and boil, and, to start it all off, "Good Cooking Is in Your Hands." Then there are columns on ingredients and techniques, followed by "holiday specials." Each one includes a menu so even the novice could prepare a meal of stuffed pork chops and a classic ratatouille some ten pages into the book. Beard's wonderfully descriptive prose gives a sense of immediacy to the text, and his remarks remain as timely today as when they were written. An essential purchase. Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 1/93; Homestyle Books alternate.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Essays for anyone who cooks or wants to Nov. 12 2008
By RT Booklover - Published on Amazon.com
The thing I love about this collection of essays about foods and cooking is that it doesn't just report recipes. It talks about techniques, ingredients, cooking tools in a very friendly and informative way. It is a pleasure to read and it encourages experimentation. In explaining both the essentials and variations on the topics & dishes covered, James Beard gives you the confidence to make dishes your own. It is more than a cook book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great book Dec 15 2010
By Mayuchico - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I happened to pick up this book at a library. I didn't expect much, but fell in love with it. I could not put it down. I was even sad toward the end because I didn't want to finish it! It is not easy to find a book like that nowadays. You can tell how much he loved food and to eat. After I returned it, I purchased a copy for my book shelf.
