James Beard's American Cookery Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

James Beard was the "dean of American cookery" (New York Times), and he put practically everything he learned about cooking into this single magnificent--now classic--cookbook. JAMES BEARD'S AMERICAN COOKERY includes more than fifteen hundred of his favorite and most successful recipes, as well as advice on dozens of cooking questions, from choosing meats and vegetables to preserving fruit and making real cheeseburgers. A celebration of the roots of cooking in the American style, this repackaged edition features the original text and color illustrations, and a new foreword by Tom Colicchio. Like Mastering the Art of French Cooking and The Joy of Cooking, it is a standard reference no kitchen is complete without.

Book News Annotation:

Cooks will rejoice in this beautiful new edition of James Beard's classic, which has been published on good quality paper in the original two-color format, reproducing entirely the original presentation, including drawings. A native of Portland, Oregon, Beard's vast knowledge and love of food is expressed in the narrative included with each recipe, making the cookbook a delight to read and ensuring its continued relevance.
