Mr. Beard colected recipes from the top bistros and gourmet estsblishments of the time. About 20% of these places are still doing biz but they have gone thru the neveau craze and have much more modern offerings than are here. Still as culinary history, a contemperary piece that shows what the elite eat in France after world war II this is great. It is also interesting who is considered the elite. Many tin horn despots and monarchs(King of Egypt any one), minor Princes, and hangers on are mentioned as fashionable guest of the establihments. This is a fun, interesting read, for any one interested in culinary history. ***** 1 *****MY SHIPPING PLEDGE ***** Orders placed by 4pm CST will be shipped same day.
