Remembrance of Things Paris

Author(s): Gourmet Magazine

Food Writing | Christmas Inspiration

For sixty years the best food writers have been sending dispatches from Paris to Gourmet. Collected here, their essays create a unique portrait of the world capital of love and food. When the book begins, just after the war, Paris is a hungry city whose chefs struggle to find the eggs and cream they need to re-create the cuisine from before the German occupation. The city comes alive again with zinc-topped tables crowded with people drinking café au lait and reveling in crisp baguettes, and with the triumphant rebirth of three-star cuisine. In time, nouvelle cuisine is born and sweeps through a newly chic and modern city. It is all here - the old-time bourgeois dinners, the tastemakers of the fashion world, the hero-chefs, and, of course, Paris in all its snobbery and refinement, its inimitable pursuit of the art of fine living.
