This is a great cookbook. It uses basic ingredients and cover all the categories any chef could want. Easy to follow instructions are included with every recipe. My only con is that there are no photos of the food so I'm never sure if the food looks like it should.

Feels like grandma's kitchen in here. Recipe's are clear and maybe could be a little healthier, but a great cook book that doesn't have a trendy theme.

Okay, folks, the message here is clear and completely Beard. If you don't get it by now, starting at James' beginning may not help. The recipes are dated, yet some are so classic, we just need to be reminded how much fun tradition CAN be. However, if you don't get his theme - always use the freshest, highest quality in season ingredients to get outstanding results, don't waste your time and money on this nostalgic trip. If you admire the man, his message and your memories, get the book and just read it for the historical pleasure, but beware, his siren song is seductive and the techniques are too easy and clearly written to pass by without a try. Is this book necessary in your library? Perhaps not, but it IS fun, quite well-written and worth the perusal as an homage to a simpler time of entertaining in the earlier 1950's.

Lovely retro styling, very similar to cookbook of my Mom's, from the early '50's. Lovely illustrations, classic recipes. It's a step back in time.

This book is fun because it has many older recipes that can't be found in newer books. The illustrations are funny drawings making it look like an old children's book ! I enjoy reading through all the descriptions of each dish. And they are simple but tasty.
