Publishers Text

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.
