EATING WELL by Burt Wolf
NON-FICTION
Released: Aug. 1, 1992

"The recipes, though no more of a piece and no more necessary in today's overstuffed market than the notes, at least have more sense and style."
Timed to accompany his new PBS show of the same name, this latest grab bag from TV-chef Wolf (What's Cooking, 1989) starts off in a typically random manner with an unprepossessing Senate bean soup (already represented in who knows how many cookbooks) and then another soup dish composed of fried catfish, bread-and-catfish dumplings, and vegetable matchsticks that comes from a Salzburg hotel whose chef claims it was Mozart's favorite.
