James Beard's life was a love affair with food. In James Beard on Food his love affair is so apparent that you find yourself sharing in his passion. Many stories are imparted from his long life in love with food. There are also many dicoveries to be found, like the origins of Waldorf salad, these lessons are not merely a history of the food but a discussion of the mistaken beliefs about them. This book would warrent 5 stars if it were not that some items do not get a complete treatment. Perhaps it is because this book contains the opinion of the writer. Beard was known for strong opinions about food and this book certainly shows them. Don't expect this to be a book of recipies but a book that discusses food in general terms. Beard on Food is a very good source of information and thought on the passionate subject of food. Get it, enjoy it and pass it along to your no cooking friends.
