Letters from Helen Evans Brown was published. According to Beard he was raised by Thema and Jue-Let, who instilled in him a passion for Chinese culture.

The book gave insight to their relationship as well as the way that they developed ideas for recipes, projects and food. He was a big man, over six feet tall, with a big belly, and huge hands. Well-educated and well-traveled during his eighty-two years, he was familiar with many cuisines but he remained fundamentally American. He was a tireless traveler, bringing his message of good food, honestly prepared with fresh, wholesome, American ingredients, to a country just becoming aware of its own culinary heritage.

The two, along with her husband Phillip, developed a friendship which was both professional and personal. At two years old that memory was made. Unlucky in the theater, he and friend Bill Rhodes capitalized on the cocktail party craze by opening Hors d'Oeuvre, Inc. It intrigued the hell out of me.

Beard and Brown became like siblings, admonishing and encouraging each other, as well as collaborating. It contained excerpts from Beard's bi-weekly correspondence from to with friend and fellow chef Helen Evans Brown.

It is preserved as a gathering place where the press and general public could appreciate the talents of emerging and established chefs. Beard was the quintessential American cook.
