Editorial Reviews:
Review:

"The book is a veritable salmagundi, a bouillabaisse, of discourses. in a health-conscious, guilt-ridden age, it has the illicit frisson of a dirty magazine in a monastery."

Henry Louis Gates, Washington Post Book World, 12/08/1996

Review:

"[I]nside this encyclopédiste was a thoughtful, witty man....It was Brillat-Savarin who established, as a modern literary convention, the moral discussion of food....He felt that he could know humankind through food, and by telling us his conclusions he tells us about himself."

Joan Acocella, New Yorker, 12/06/1999

Book Description: Penguin Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 1994. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 198 x 129 mm. Brand New Book. A book without precedent, skirting the line between recipe-book, memoir, history and philosophy, Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin s The Physiology of Taste is edited with an introduction by Anne Drayton in Penguin Classics . Brillat-Savarin s unique, exuberant collection of dishes, experiences, reflections, history and philosophy raised gastronomy to an art form. First published in France in 1825, this remarkable book reflected a new era in French cuisine: the advent of the restaurant, which gave the bourgeoisie the opportunity to select their dishes with precision and anticipation. Yet the author also gives his views on taste, diet and maintaining a healthy weight, on digestion, sleep, dreams and being a gourmand. Witty, shrewd and anecdotal, The Physiology of Taste not only contains some remarkable recipes, it an elegant argument for the pleasures of good food and a hearty appetite. Anne Drayton s lively translation is accompanied by an introduction illustrating the remarkable nature of this work, by a man who was not a chef or an author but a magistrate in a French provincial town. Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin (1755-1825) was born in Belley, France, an area renowned for its food and wine. After graduating in law, Brillat-Savarin became magistrate of Belley and was later elected Mayor. During the French Revolution his life was endangered and he fled to other parts of Europe and then America, earning his living as a violinist in a theatre orchestra. He returned to France in 1796 and became a judge of the Supreme Courts of Appeal. He began compiling a book of meditations on gastronomy and in 1825, a few months before his death, published this brilliant treatise on the pleasures of eating: the culmination of a life-long love affair with food.
