The return of a classic food book: James Beard’s own selection of his favorite columns and recipes, distilling a lifetime of kitchen wisdom into one volume.
In Beard on Food, one of America’s great culinary thinkers and teachers collects his best essays, ranging from the perfect hamburger to the pleasures of oxtails, from salad dressing to Sauce Diable. The result is not just a compendium of fabulous recipes and delicious bites of writing. It’s a philosophy of food—unfussy, wide-ranging, erudite, and propelled by Beard’s exuberance and sense of fun.
In a series of short, charming essays, with recipes printed in contrasting type, Beard follows his many enthusiasms, demonstrating how to make everyday foods into delicious meals. Covering meats, vegetables, fish, herbs, and kitchen tools, Beard on Food is both an invaluable reference for cooks and a delightful read for armchair enthusiasts.
