Slight shelf wear and a couple of small tears to top edge of D/J. There never was a writer quite like T. A. Layton-inquisitive, ebullient, resourceful, pugnacious, the enfant terrible of the wine and catering trades. Here is another instalment of the waywar and inimitable gossip about wine and food which so delighted readers of his earlier books Table For Tow, Restaurant Roundabout, and Five to a Feast. We read what it is like to work as a kitchen boy at the Ritz; to start farming from scratch in wildest Sussex; to engage restaurant staff; to be apprenticed to a City wine shipper; to run a grocer's shop in Mayfair during rationing; and we go with the author on long and informative journeys to taste the obscurer wines of France and other European countries. In the middle the author pauses to include a portmanteau historical novel about Nicholas Fourquet, chancellor to le Roi Soleil. Gourmets readings this book are in for a mouth-watering, exhilarating and wholly unorthodox experience. Illustrated. 256 pp. (We carry a wide selection of titles in The Arts, Theology, History, Politics, Social and Physical Sciences. academic and scholarly books and Modern First Editions, and all types of Academic Literature. )
