Listen to Beard describe his own book, which included some
1,500 recipes, from Blushing Bunny (tomato rarebit) to
Cracker (mock apple) Pie: "This is not a book of regional
cookery, it is not a collection of family recipes, it is
not primarily a critique of American cuisine. It is simply
a record of good eating in this country with some of its
lore." Beard went on to express the hope that "we are now
in another epoch of gastronomic excellence." In a New
York Times review, Nika Hazelton praised the book as
"the value of the year, and as good for us as it will be
for our children. The author, who has done more than anybody
else to popularize good food in America, puts a lifetime of
experience into the page."
