Book Description:
A sumptuous anthology of the literature and art of gastronomy. With an Introduction by Andre Simon.

Here is the perfect bedside companion for epicures. Ranging widely across time and countries, its contents offer an enlightening, richly entertaining portrait of mankind at table. Never to be forgotten meals and appalling ones; palatial banquets and desert island deprivation; strange food in outlandish places; the proper and improper behavior of hosts and guests... these, and others, are the themes of this splendid collection. Among the contributors are Evelyn Waugh, S.J. Perelman, Mark Twain, Colette, and Proust, and there are pieces by Brillat Savarin and other epicures on specific aspects of gastronomy. Peppering the writings are cartoons by James Thurber and Ronald Searle, as well as drawings by Toulouse Lautrec and Aubrey Beardsley and paintings by Caravaggio and Picasso.
