        • bioText: JAMES BEARD is why you are a foodie today. He was, with Julia Child, one of the two most influential chefs and food writers in America, championing both French cooking and the preservation and maintenance of great local food traditions to average home cooks. He was a prolific writer, producing twenty-one books, including James Beard's American Cookery and countless magazine articles; a tireless teacher; and early television personality and product promoter. The James Beard Foundation, which administers the industry's most influential awards and meaningful scholarships, was founded in his honor after his death in 1985 and is headquartered in his townhouse in New York City's Greenwich Village.

          October 1, 2012
          In the 1950s, James Beard inaugurated an approach to cookery that announced to the world that American cooking had finally merited real distinction. His love for the freshest, finest products of America's fields and streams combined with disciplined technique and impeccable taste. Beard's embrace of the new medium of television gave him a wider audience than his books could have hoped to achieve. This compilation of some of Beard's best recipes spans the breadth of his culinary achievement. In true American fashion, he draws from French, Italian, Indian, African, and other cuisines and adapts them to American kitchens and techniques, often simplifying otherwise complex dishes, such as cassoulet, without compromising flavor. Betty Fussell contributes a perceptive essay on Beard's complicated life and his teaching talents. Those too young to have already encountered Beard's sensible and always tasty rendition of American cooking will welcome this volume onto their shelves.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2012, American Library Association.)
