A culinary Baedeker, 50 Foods will delight and inform the connoisseur as well as the novice. Like Behr's celebrated magazine, The Art of Eating, 50 Foods presents simple, practical information about buying, using, preparing, and enjoying. Behr focuses on aroma, appearance, flavor, and texture to determine what "the best" means for each food. He tells you how to select top quality-signs of freshness and ripeness, best season, top varieties, proper aging. If the way to prepare, serve, or eat something is little known, then he explains it (how to open an oyster, why the best way to cook green beans is boiling, how to clean a whole salted anchovy, when to eat and when to discard the rind of a cheese). Behr also names the most complementary foods and flavors for each of these fifty marvelous foods and the wines that go with them. The fifty selections provide a broad sensory range for the modern gourmet. Most of the foods are raw materials, but some have been fermented or otherwise transformed-into bread, ham, cheese. Six of the fifty are cheeses. As Behr explains, cheese is probably the best food, as wine is the best drink. Behr argues that food tastes more delicious when it is closer to nature. Skilled low technology is almost always superior to high technology. But with scientific insight, the old methods can be refined to achieve more consistent high quality. We can't always have the best, but with the information in this book we can eat better every day. Knowing good food is part of a complete understanding of the world-part of a full enjoyment of nature, a full experience of the senses, a full life. For the connoisseur at any level, 50 Foods is a beautifully written guide to deliciousness, with color illustrations by Mikel Jaso throughout. | Format: Paperback | Language/Sprache: english | 640 gr | 228x153x30 mm | 432 pp. Bookseller Inventory # K9780143125983

Book Description Penguin. 1 Paperback(s), 2013. soft. Book Condition: New. The founder and editor of The Art of Eating, Edward Behr here offers his own canon of the 50 foods every connoisseur must know. Most are raw materials—Behr argues that food tastes more delicious when it is closer to nature—but some have been fermented or otherwise transformed, including bread, ham, and cheeses. Behr focuses on aroma, appearance, flavor, and texture to determine what "the best" means for each food. He tells you how to select top quality—signs of freshness and ripeness, best season, top varieties, proper aging—and explains where necessary the best way to prepare, serve, or eat these foods (how to open an oyster, for example; why the best way to cook green beans is boiling; how to clean a whole salted anchovy; and when to eat and when to discard the rind of a cheese). Behr also names the most complementary foods and flavors for each of these foods, and the wines that go with them."Ed Behr has a unique and holistic gastronomic vision, beautifully reflected in his examination of these 50 diverse foods that form the building blocks of taste. This fascinating, eminently readable book is a beautiful resource for curious cooks and people who want to know where their food comes from."—Alice Waters"In his elegantly composed, alphabetically organized primer on the most tasty ingredients in good cooking, Behr, the founder of the Art of Eating magazine, shares useful ways of growing, choosing and pairing foods with other foods and, especially wines. The book is certainly a welcome resource for the home chef."—Publishers Weekly 416. Bookseller Inventory # 61548
