Description: With the style and flair that make him America's foremost culinary authority, James Beard approaches cooking in a manner at once simple and totally expert. Two things are important to every good cook, he believes. One is knowing the basic way, the best way, to prepare each favorite dish. The other is knowing the many delicious variations of each basic recipe. 

James Beard's Fireside Cook Book is based on this brilliantly simple idea. Here are 800 superb basic recipes and their 400 fascinating variations. Each is so clearly explained that a novice can follow it -- with impressive results. Yet this collection is elegant enough for the most meticulous master chef or the most ambitious hostess. A beautiful, informative and inspiring gift for every cook who cares. 


Condition: Good condition. Top edge of jacket back has small tear.
