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.
