Foreword by Barbara Kafka. What a treat John Ferrone has brought us with this book, a feast of articles by James Beard that have never before appeared in book form. As a longtime friend, collaborator, and worker with Beard, Ferrone saved these pieces from oblivion and sifted and annotated them with a knowledgeable eye. Of course, they give great pleasure; but do they matter? It is natural that I would think so.

It contains a lot of info already published in his book " Delights and Prejudices ", but is still a very nice read.

This is a fascinating read about the Great Culinary Artist, James Beard, whose popularity peaked in the 1940s and '50s. It's a biography, articles by Beard himself, and an excellent 'scratch cooking' gourmet cookbook.

Beard was an old school chef and the antithesis of Poppy Cannon ('The Can-Opener Cookbook'), and he's almost solely responsible for popularizing scratch and gourmet cooking with home cooks. He was also an excellent outdoor chef, stemming from his childhood upraising on the northwest coast of the United States in the early 20th Century, all of which is detailed in the book.

Beard's techniques are copiously noted herein and the volume is quite readable. Any professional chef or home cook can learn a great deal from this fine book. I highly recommend it for casual readers as well.
