Remembering James Beard

Happy Birthday,

Mr. Beard.

May I call you Jim?
You are my favorite chef, bar none.
I treasure each one of your books.
You loved to teach,
not just to perform. 
There is a difference. 

So, Happy Birthday, 
dearest Jim.
I miss you.

"I really think I'm becoming a better cook
as the years go by."
James Beard, 1963
