Marcel Proust's literary masterpiece À la recherche du temps perdu overflows with brilliant, minutely described accounts of food and drink drawn from the author's vivid memories. After all, it was the taste of one of those short, plump little cakes called petites madeleines, dipped into a cup of tea, that first impelled Proust into “a remembrance of things past.” He wrote ...more

this book is so cool! It's about all the food and dishes mentioned in Proust, In Search of Lost Time of course, but other books as well.
The recipes are categorized: Hors d'oeuvre, fish, meat, sauces, desserts, etc. In the margin you have the passage by Proust and the reference, and then the recipe as main part of the page.
I love the old 1979 edition, with passages and cool illustrations in sepia colors.
From a preview, it seems the new edition is a plain black and white, but I may be wrong.

This book is marvelous. I make the madelaines all the time...it is also a very insightful look into Marcel Proust's home life. It is hard to find but worth the price.
