This novel is about the famous French chef Auguste Escoffier who lived through the Franco-Prussian War, the first World War, and barely died in time to missed the Second World War. He was the most famous chef in the world and established a lot of the practices that are still followed in fine kitchens. This book is full of menus, discussions of food, politics, famous people, gossip, intrigue, a very strange marriage and plenty of romantic encounters with the rich and famous. I really enjoyed it, and thought of lots of ways to improve the foods I was cooking on those days while I was reading it.
