Takes readers on a culinary tour of the palaces of Britain and Europe in the age of gastronomic indulgence, when, for the first time, chefs became celebrities and the modern restaurant was born. Provides a dramatic perspective on a sensuous period in European history -- First Empire Paris, Georgian England, and the Russia of “War and Peace” -- when emperors, kings, and princes wielded Careme’s gastronomy as a diplomatic tool. But Careme’s reputation rested on the idea of marrying food and glamour in his books -- which transported readers to the tables of the famous households for whom he cooked -- he was the first chef to become rich and famous by publishing cookbooks. Careme’s recipes are featured here. Color illustrations.
