IndependentAn engaging and well-researched biography...Brillat-Savarin emerges as an enormously likeable man.
— Christina Hardyment
The first full and authoritative biography of the father of gastronomy. MacDonogh not only chronicles Brillat's many pursuits, he also presents a fascinating picture of provincial France under the ancien regime and the dangerous years that followed its fall. The world of revolutionaries and gourmets explored with elegance and scholarship.-Observer.
