In the early 1970's, James Beard was approached by "American Way", American Airlines' in-flight magazine, to write a monthly column in the form of a series of cooking lessons. He agreed, and ended up writing 70 columns for the magazine, collected in book form for the first time in "James Beard's Simple Foods". Loosely organized under the headings "Beard's Basics", "Preparing and Cooking, A to Z", and "Holiday Specials", this book ranges in topic from understanding meat cuts and tips on outdoor grilling, to an assortment of fruit cobbler recipes and instructions for making sausage, all written in the style for which James Beard was best known.

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.
