My favorite comfort food chef.

The authority on home cooked food. Period.

One of the best cookbooks ever

This is one of the best cookbooks ever written, and I cannot believe that as they are reissuing other Beard titles, this one remains out of print. This time, presumably, Beard's focus is on slightly healthier foods than some of the rich stuff in his earlier texts, and he turns (slightly) more focus on vegetable recipes. The recipe for Mustard Chicken is worth the price of the book, and I also love the recipe for Deep Dish Pizza (obviously not one of the healthier choices), Billy's Coleslaw and Shrimp Floridian (although admittedly that recipe is available from plenty of other sources). Like Julia Child and other great food writers, Beard had a genuine enthusiasm for good cooking which is infectious. If you can grab a used copy, do it.
