Before Julia Child, Emeril, and the Food Network, there was television's first chef, James Beard, who brought fine cooking (and his jolly presence) to the small screen in 1946. The author of 20-plus cookbooks, his message of good food, honestly prepared with fresh ingredients, helped establish an American cuisine.

This delightful, affectionate portrait of America's first foodie gives an intimate look at someone who exuberantly embraced every aspect of life -- but may have wanted too much. Nick Olcott portrays the culinary maestro described as "the face and belly of American gastronomy," a man who loved both food and life.
