This is not only a fascinating look at France during the early part of the 20th century, with some wonderful tales about ex-patriots, Alice Toklas and Gertrude Stein (told from Alice's point of view), but the recipes are wonderful. I've made quite a few, and while they may not all be 'health-conscious,' they are delicious. This is for literature lovers, history lovers and foodies. Highly recommended.
