The great James Beard once said, “I don’t like gourmet cooking or ‘this’ cooking or ‘that’ cooking. I like good cooking.”

To celebrate better-than-good American cuisine, the James Beard Foundation brings together recipes and stories from their best-loved local restaurants across the country in “James Beard’s All-American Eats” (Rizzoli; 2016). 

Naturally that includes crabcakes with remoulade from Joe’s Stone Crab in Miami. If you can’t drive to Langer’s Deli for cabbage soup, this compendium has the recipe. What are your beloved meals from great American locals?

Guest:

Alison Tozzi Liu, Editorial Director of the James Beard Foundation
