A Taste of Paris, A History of the Parisian Love Affair With Food

David Downie

Continuing his reputation as 'the Francophile’s Francophile' David Downie leads readers on a gourmet walking tour of Paris eateries, mixing in plenty of historical anecdote. Eating his way through Roman butcher shops, classic "Belle Epoque" bistros, a restaurant inside Versailles, Marie Antoinette's vegetable garden and more, he contours the history and the geography of the city through its cuisine. Downie shows how Paris became (and still is) the ultimate arbiter of food in the world.
