About this title


Here are the European and American chefs who, across the centuries have raised Western civilization's culinary skills. This work tells the story of their backgrounds, techniques and innovations together with their recipes.

From the Publisher:

This splendid volume looks at the life and times ‹ and the recipes ‹ of fourteen great chefs (from France, Italy, America, and Britain) who, across six centuries, have raised Western civilization¹s culinary skills to the highest degree. Apart from such recent names as Escoffier and Fannie Farmer, there are those that have been largely forgotten, such as Taillevent, Scappi, and Martino. Anne Willan examines their backgrounds, techniques, and innovations, and there are some 100 recipes demonstrating the specialties of each cook. Richly illustrated with 250 photographs and works of art. Anne Willan is a scholar, cook, and founder of La Varenne Cooking School in France. Among her many books are La France Gastronomique, La Varenne Pratique, and Anne Willan: From My Chateau Kitchen.
