Synopsis >

James Beard, called 'the quintessential American cook' by Julia Child, laid the groundwork for the gastronomical revolution that surged in the second half of the 20th century. Beard trained as an actor but found his life's work in food: he was the author of 27 cookbooks, founded his own cooking school, and made history in 1946 by hosting the first cooking show on television. In this video, Barbara Kafka remembers Beard's contribution and life.
