About this title


Readers of this book, which has been translated into English for the first time, are reminded that Ali-Bab wrote this classic treatise on gastronomy in his native French nearly 70 years ago. He was a mining engineer and in the course of his work traveled all over the world - successfully combining his profession with what, thanks to his own refined tastes and unlimited curiosity about food, mad his fame as a gourmet longer-lasting than his engineering skills.

Translator Elizabeth Benson has faithfully recorded recipes and theories, as closely as possible to the way Ali-Bab originally set them down.
