Delights & Prejudices [paperback] James beard [May 15, 1971]

You've probably heard of the James Beard awards for up-and-coming chefs, but since James Beard was, along with Julia Child, really a phenomenon of the Sixties, a lot of newer "foodies" haven't really heard of him. He was not only a great cook, but a terrific writer. He wrote over twenty cookbooks, mostly of standard American cuisine with a slight Continental flavor, but today, I wager he's hardly known compared to the more dramatic Julia Child.

His biography is a fascinating look at American cuisine really as far back as the turn of the Twentieth Century--the cuisine of the wealthy who had cooks at home and enjoyed roast chickens, homemade salad dressings, and even English-style plum pudding. The recipes in this memoir are scattered far and wide with no real organization except by the memory evoked in each chapter. Beard describes his formidable mother, businesswoman and hotel owner, who dominated his life and that of his father and who gave him his passion and understanding for fine cooking. There are, however, many good and useful recipes in here, such as chowder, breads, pot-au-feu and roasts. There are recipes for the fresh fruit preserves he enjoyed making at home in Portland, Oregon. There are fewer desserts: James Beard favored hearty foods like roasts and stews, although you can find a pumpkin pie and how to make a custard in this book.

The only recipe I regret not being in here (but you can find it elsewhere) is his macaroni and cheese. It's still the only recipe I use and I can only make it once every few years, because it's so rich and so good that it's impossible not to keep eating it. It's a macaroni in a heavy, cream-based bechamel cheese sauce that is baked. It works up custardy and firm, not the loose cheese-sauced pasta you find in general. The recipe is all over the web and it's deceptively simple. Don't say I didn't warn you about it.

This is one of the few autobiographical works Beard wrote. Generally, you'd get a few snippets about his mother or his time in Oregon and various other locations. These memories in "Delights" are well worth reading if you enjoy the history of American cuisine. Mr. Beard was a giant influence, and his writing is always evocative.

The name is apropos - these truly are reminiscences of things that delighted or disgusted Mr. Beard - not necessarily universal, not necessarily rational. It's a fun excursion down memory lane with a national treasure of American cuisine. His tales of growing up in the PNW and of his mother's kitchen are the best bits of the book - they capture an era long gone and inspire nostalgia in the best way. The book seemed to lose its focus as it went on, but there are still some fun moments to be had, and the recipes sprinkled throughout the book are a treat, whether one ever intends to make them or not. Recommended for Beard fans, maybe not so much for others who aren't interested in his personal peccadilloes or the sources of his culinary genius.

This is a wonderful book that is part recipes and part autobiography. Beard was one of the pioneers to write about and explore American cooking. Many wonderful anecdotes about his growing up in the northwest and the influence his strong minded and culinary adventuresome mother had on shaping his taste. This is a book that I have read through several times and found many useful recipes.
Absolutely delightful reading.

This was a well written and enjoyable book but I had to smile at the recipes. Elaborate and written for a time when you could depend on help from the butcher or fishmonger. The recipe for pheasants were particularly amusing - as were Mr. Opinions on all sorts of food and entertaining items.

great little book about James Beard, a complicated individual, but also one who was aware of the world around him. He traveled a great deal and brought home recipies of things he encountered, which interested him. Many recipies in the book but they are not listed in a typical recipe fashion, but mixed in with the narrative of the book, so you'll have to read it to find the "goodies."

A delightful book not only about the man who was the first tv chef; but, has some recipes thrown in that are a blast from the past. Learn about his humor as you learn some techniques in the kitchen.

I'd forgotten what a wonderful cook James Beard was. This did not seem like such an old book. Maybe because I'm an old person. I really loved this book, and the recipes are ageless.
This is a delightful book relating wonderful stories about James Beard's childhood which prepared him for his foundation in cooking. It also includes recipes and the stories surrounding the events of the food celebrations. It really is a must for the kitchen library.
