About this book (from Google books)

"This classic armchair read is the sixth volume in our James Beard Library of Great American Cooking and is considered by many to be the best of the collection. The closest the 'Dean of American Cooking' ever came to writing an autobiography, Delights and Prejudices is full of insightful, entertaining stories that chronicle the development of one of America's most discerning palates. Along the way, Beard shares more than 150 recipes for sumptuous treats like scalloped clams, potato gnocchi, and much more, including many recipes from his own mother's kitchen. In the words of Julia Child, 'It is a wonderful event for all lovers of good cooks and good food that Delights and Prejudices is with us again.'"
