Signed by Beard on half title page, “Good Eating, Good Cooking, James Beard.” Beard’s culinary awakening started as a young child: “The Beard family household in Portland, Oregon, centered around a flourishing kitchen, which functioned with the seasons: in the spring, mammoth with asparagus was canned, and in the summer, fruits of all varieties; in the fall, mincemeat was made for the holidays. Almost daily, the aroma of fresh baking filled the air…Each summer the Beards moved to the Oregon seaside, where the bountiful Pacific provisioned their table with incomparable Dungeness crab, razor clams, and Olympia oysters.” Silver flecked illustrated end papers.
