James Villas

Between Bites: Memoirs of a Hungry Hedonist

James Villas stumbled into his forty year long career while escaping from the rain. Interested in food, but not as a career, he ducked into the Hôtel de la Côte d’Or during the reign of celebrated chef Alexandre Dumaine. Dumaine took Villas under his wing, for a moment. In Between Bites, Villas recounts his lifelong journey through the culinary world. He examines the importance of meeting and befriending culinary greats such as Alexandre Dumaine, Craig Claiborne, Paul Bocuse, Paula Wolfert, and many more. Villas exposes little known aspects of people in the food industry that everyone thought they knew. His telling of MFK Fisher’s personal instruction on the correct way to vomit is particularly juicy, as are his questionable activities with James Beard in bars in Midtown Manhattan. Villas’ odyssey would be incomplete without the recipes from critical moments of his life. From Coq au Vin with chicken’s blood to his mother’s strawberry preserves, each recipe is simple and produces stellar results. Read this book and experience the culinary revolution witnessed over the past forty years through James Villas’ eyes.
