“With selections from the last six decades, this book gives the reader snapshots of Paris that are crisp, clear, and often poignant, proof that things really have changed in the temple of food. The cameos of the sleeves-rolled-up individuals behind the big names—including Berthillon and Lenôtre—read like fiction and remind us of a fundamental truth: creating magic in the kitchen is hard work, and the French have been at it far longer than others. An entrancing book.”
—Thad Carhart, New York Times-bestselling author of The Piano Shop on the Left Bank
From the Hardcover edition.

History, social studies, food, travel, recipes and just life in Paris, that we read and say " Aaaahhhh Paris".... Sometimes the articles and columns are all some people will ever experience. But thankfully they are great and we can still read them.
This book is a compilation of articles from Gourmet that are dated and heavy reading. There are a number of articles all by the same food writer, and I found his work especially long and cumbersome. I love Reichl's work and have read all of her books, but this early project where she serves as a curator and an editor did not make a connection with me.
