Characters A Taste of Paris

Characters A Taste of Paris Review Å A Taste of Paris 102 Summary ☆ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ✓ David Downie E Medieval cookbook describes a thirty two part meal featuring hare stew eel soup and honeyed wine; during the last great banuet at Versailles a year before the Revolution the gourmand Louis XVI savored thirty two main dishes and sixteen desserts; yet in 1812 Grimod de la Reynière the father of French gastronomy regaled guests with fifty two courses fifteen wines three types of coffee and seventeen liueursFollowing the contours of history and the geography of the city Downie sweeps readers. What could have been a fun entertaining book about Paris s culinary history turned out to be Downie wallowing in a poor understanding of science GMO s aren t bad for you while organic isn t necessarily better MSG isn t a boogeyman either modernist cuisine nobody who cooks calls it molecular gastronomy any and it s a movement already long past gone or what it takes to be at the top of the food chain so to speak of restaurants Downie protests too much He criticized food critics past and present of not knowing how to cook Based on his poor understanding of science and how the restaurant world works I wouldn t be at all surprised if he is capable of knowing how to set up basic mise en place for spaghetti with jarred sauce Until the final chapter I was amused perhaps even inspired to visit Paris His love affair with Parisian food was the hook Sadly however he began curmudgeonly ranting against the Michelin Guide pasteurized cheese has he ever read about the listeria outbreaks in France due to their love for raw milk and the need for chefs to constantly push the boundaries of food to keep people going out to eat We re already several generations beyond modernist cuisine There are only a handful of practitioners left in the world and the best of them is based in Chicago Cut out the final chapter and some of his anachronisms and scientific illiteracy could be overlooked as they were dwarfed by his obvious passion for both the food and history of Paris gastronomy But he left a bad taste in my mouth that can only be washed out with a dose of Bourdain with an absinthe chaser Note I am a culinary student with nearly four decades of cooking under my belt I m also married to a future doctor with an eual appreciation of food and science she helps me separate food myths from food science

Thank you to St Martin s Press and David Downie for the free advance copyPart travelogue part history book and part humourless self aggrandizement this book purports to take you through the streets of Paris to the best restaurants most evocative of different periods of the city s culinary historyI did not enjoy this book The pretentiousness bleeds into every page The author both dismissively belittles those wanting to protect authentic French cuisine with a UNESCO certification AND those who enjoy modern cuisine At one point he dismisses fusion cuisine entirely with an off hand line Who even remembers fusion Within the first few pages the author dismisses and insults foodies and alternatively something called foodistas for eschewing actually good food in search of modern exciting food Um hello How tone deaf can you be who do you think is buying your bookSome of the historical anecdotes were uite well done witty and informative but the portions dealing with where to go in modern Paris were atrocious Far from being a walking tour as the blurb describes this book is incomprehensible for anyone not already intimately familiar with the cityFirst time visitor to Paris Don t buy this book Foodie Don t buy this book
