I've never read anything like this. This author is an expert on Auguste Escoffier, the outdoors, high cuisine, the natural world, hunting, animals, and many other things. He's even in love with a vegetarian! I laughed out loud. I couldn't put it down. This boook would appeal to anyone!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

This is the book I've been waiting for all my life, a book that teaches me something about the outdoors, about cooking, about history, while making me feel as though I'm just reading for pleasure. I wouldn't normally read a book like this, but a friend of mine gave it to me and insisted, so I picked it up and couldn't put it down. The author describes his quest to recreate an old French cookbook. He writes about his friends, all interesting and funny characters, and about the people he meets along the way, mostly outrageous eccentrics. There is also a love story nestled into the beautiful, accessible prose. I loved, loved, loved this book, and I wish I could buy it for the whole world. READ THIS!Was this review helpful?
