James Beard's Delights and Prejudices - Paperback

1964, ISBN: 0762428457

[SR: 7459002], Paperback, [EAN: 9780762428458], Running Press Book Publishers, Running Press Book Publishers, Book, [PU: Running Press Book Publishers], Running Press Book Publishers, This classic armchair read is the sixth volume in our James Beard Library of Great American Cooking and is considered by many to be the best of the collection. The closest the ""Dean of American Cooking"" ever came to writing an autobiography, Delights and Prejudices is full of insightful, entertaining stories that chronicle the development of one of America's most discerning palates. Along the way, Beard shares more than 150 recipes for sumptuous treats like scalloped clams, potato gnocchi, and much more, including many recipes from his own mother's kitchen. In the words of Julia Child, ""It is a wonderful event for all lovers of good cooks and good food that Delights and Prejudices is with us again., James Beard's 1964 classic, Delights and Prejudices, has been reprinted in a newly illustrated edition. This is wonderful news for all who love food and food writing. Erudite yet intimate, Delights and Prejudices is, first, the memoir-with-recipes of a great American gastronome. It's also fascinatingly panoramic on good meals taken worldwide; on ingredients as diverse as the potato and the truffle; on great food places, markets to restaurants; and on food people, from Beard's cantankerous, food-muse mother to many of the stars of the last century's food firmament, including Julia Child. This is not only Beard's greatest work but also one of the best books we have on food and what we know about it. Beard's gastronomic life began in bounteous early-20th century Portland, Oregon, where his mother cooked for several hotels. An early culinary memory has the near-infant Beard relishing an onion, skin and all. From there the story captures a world of gastronomic likes and dislikes from "sensational" veal roasts to the gherkins known as cornichons, "one of the mistakes the French make in eating." Beard's love of French food is, however, usually unmitigated, matched only by his adoration of traditional, locally produced American cooking. Recipes for this fare, including clam soufflé and candied-ginger pumpkin pie, are among the 150 formulas offered, a Beardian crème de la crème that also encompasses hors d'oeuvres, breads, and cakes. The book also chronicles Beard's ascent to fame, beginning with his 1940s appearance on I Love to Eat, TV's first cooking show, to the arrival of his many influential cookbooks. It ends, characteristically, in his kitchen, "the place where [he] can best satisfy the eccentricities of [his] own palate." The journey makes am enthralling read. --Arthur Boehm, 7538384011, Culinary, 2419, Professionals & Academics, 2, Biographies & Memoirs, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 4340, Natural Foods, 4208, Cooking by Ingredient, 6, Cookbooks, Food & Wine, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books
