About the new edition: "While these changes "modernize" Larousse to some extant they never alter the essential classic and traditional orientation of the bookwhich makes it so valuable."-- Introduction by Jennifer H. Lang. A history of the Larousse Gastronomique: Prosper Montagné (1865 – 1948) was a French chef and author of many books and articles on food, cooking, and gastronomy, notably the Larousse Gastronomique. The Encyclopædia Britannica writes of him: "the two men who probably had the greatest impact on French gastronomy and that of the world at large were Prosper Montagné and Georges-Auguste Escoffier. Montagné was one of the great French chefs of all time, and he achieved a secure place in gastronomic history by creating Larousse Gastronomique (1938), the basic encyclopaedia of French gastronomy. As a young man., he came to the conclusion that all pièces montées, as well as superfluous garnitures and decorations, should be discarded."
