    This book made me extremely hungry. I have never heard of Escoff

    This book made me extremely hungry. I have never heard of Escoffier and so this book opened new doors for me. His relationship with his wife Delphine is a bit odd and a tad complicated. Maybe because he had an affair with Sarah. The character that spoke to me the most was the maid, Sabine. Although she was slow and not really wanting to work, I like how much she worked at the end and was learning about cooking.

    Every page was a picture anew, full of plates of food, images of things unique. I appreciate the author's details in every page. The description of the Red Dinner was beyond amazing, I felt as if I could feel each thing as he said it. Kelby is a very talented author and I wish to read more!

    I did give it 4 stars because, in some parts I just felt a bit lost, other than those moments, I was so engrossed in this novel, I felt bereaved when it ended.

    I received a copy of this novel from first reads on Goodreads in exchange for my honest opinion.

    Richly imagined tale of the man who revolutionized the culinary

    Richly imagined tale of the man who revolutionized the culinary world. Haven't enjoyed a book about food so much since Ruth Reichl's Tender at the Bone and Julie and Julia. Readers looking for a tightly-woven plot will be disappointed. This is a different sort of book, but decidedly satisfying in context. Four stars for imagination and for making me very hungry.
