Review

Praise for Remembrance of Things Paris:
"With selections from the last six decades, this book gives the reader snapshots of Paris that are crisp, clear, and often poignant, proof that things really have changed in the temple of food. The cameos of the sleeves-rolled-up individuals behind the big names--including Berthillon and Lenotre--read like fiction and remind us of a fundamental truth: creating magic in the kitchen is hard work, and the French have been at it far longer than others. An entrancing book."
--Thad Carhart, "New York Times"-bestselling author of The Piano Shop on the Left Bank

From the Inside Flap

A glorious, edible tour of Paris through six decades of writing from <i>Gourmet</i> magazine, edited and introduced by Ruth Reichl<br><br>For sixty years the best food writers have been sending dispatches from Paris to <i>Gourmet</i>. Collected here for the first time, their essays create a unique and timeless portrait of the world capital of love and food. When the book begins, just after the war, we are in a hungry city whose chefs struggle to find the eggs and cream they need to re-create the cuisine from before the German occupation. We watch as Paris comes alive again with zinc-topped tables crowded with people drinking café au lait and reveling in crisp baguettes, and the triumphant rebirth of three-star cuisine. In time, nouvelle cuisine is born and sweeps through a newly chic and modern city. It is all here: the old-time bourgeois dinners, the tastemakers of the fashion world, the hero-chefs, and, of course, Paris in all its snobbery and refinement, its inimitable pursuit of the art of fine living. Beautifully written, these dispatches from the past are intimate and immediate, allowing us to watch the month-by-month changes in the world’s most wonderful city. <b>Remembrance of Things Paris</b> is a book for anyone who wants to return to a Paris where a buttery madeleine is waiting around every corner.<br><br>Contributors include Louis Diat, Naomi Barry, Joseph Wechsberg, Judith and Evan Jones, Don Dresden, Lillian Langseth-Christensen, Diane Johnson, Michael Lewis, and Jonathan Gold. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
