Amazon.com Review

The Way I Cook collects recipes from 17 cookbooks written by since 1983. You also will find 90 new recipes organized into 24 menus. Bailey's style is graceful, gracious, imaginative, and relaxed. Most dishes are quick and easy to prepare since Bailey believes eating well includes having a good time in the kitchen as well as at the table. Trained as an artist, Bailey's feel for pleasing the eye along with the palate is ever present, but never overwhelming. (You might call him the antidote to Martha Stewart.) Bailey lets uncomplicated food speak for itself. If you missed his cookbooks the first time around, The Way I Cook is a way to catch them. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From Publishers Weekly

Men ON THE RANGE From Country Weekends to Portable Food, Lee Bailey's cookbooks have been marked by recipes that are largely uncomplicated to prepare but impressive to serve. In Lee Bailey's The Way I Cook, he gathers the contents of his previous titles?plus 100 new offerings?into a single, working volume. Home cooks may well choose to display his earlier, handsome bestsellers on the coffee table while they take this latest comprehensive and usable collection into the kitchen. With Mr. Food: From My Kitchen to Yours: Stories and Recipes from Home, syndicated TV personality Mr. Food (aka Art Ginsberg) shares more than 125 of his favorite recipes, each linked to a story from his life. Illustrated with photos of friends and family, this culinary stroll down Memory Lane explores 50 years of popular dishes (Tuna Noodle Casserole) and food fads (Lipton California Onion Dip).

Lee Bailey is great. I have all his books, 'Weekends,' 'Desserts,' 'Cooking For Friends,' etc. and I use them almost exclusively. This book is quite comprehensive and includes a few recipes from his other books. From the highly original 'Scrambled Egg Salad' to the simple 'Tomato Aspic' to the marvelous 'Veal chops with Blackberries' to the divine 'Natchez lemon Cake' you won't regret buying this cookbook. The recipes are laid out in a simple, straight forward style. Lots of cookbooks promise fabulous dishes. This one actually delivers it.

I love Lee Bailey's Cookbooks but what I adore is the glossy, colored photos of the completed dishes. This book is just words, recipes and advice.
I own it and refer to it at times but prefer Lee's books with the gorgeous photographs. He's a marvel, though, and I love him.
