Award-winning author Bernard Clayton Jr. began his career as a reporter and foreign correspondent; baking and cooking were his hobbies. He has been writing cookbooks for more than thirty years. When Mr. Clayton travels, he investigates historical and regional recipes, conversing with cooks and bakers around the world. He is the author of numerous cookbooks, including Bernard Clayton's Cooking Across America, The Complete Book of Pastry, and The Breads of France. He lives with his wife in Bloomington, Indiana.
His creative touches make the recipes special....There is much to admire.
-- Marian Burros, The New York Times Book Review
To my mind, Bernard Clayton is a genius in the kitchen. His book of soups and stews is a splendid and inspired addition to any serious home cook's library.
