Plumbing the depths of France’s culinary genius, this group biography transports readers to "les trente glorieuses," France’s 30-year boom between the end of WWII and the mid-1970s. In an era when Americans were hungry for all things French, six American gourmands savored French gastronomy to its core: Julia Child, M.F.K. Fisher, wine buyer Alexis Lichine, journalist A. J. Liebling, food writer Richard Olney and cookbook author Alice B. Toklas. The panoramic biography introduces readers to a dialogue that continues to this day.
