People always say not to judge a book by its cover, but in this case, I absolutely did judge it by its cover. It’s simple, white, with “James Beard” in big black letters. It has a quote from one of my favorite ladies, Julia Child: “In the beginning, there was James Beard.” Who am I to question the greatest culinary minds in recent history? To top it off, there is a simple red bow-tie on the back cover, just like James Beard wore. I love a good bow-tie. Sold. I bought it without even opening the cover. Granted, I bought it online, but that’s beside the point.
