About this Item

A Fine tight copy in a Fine unclipped dust jacket. The life of Roy Andries de Groot was a continual quest for perfection: the perfect meal, the perfect wine, the perfect cheese. Until his death in 1983, de Groot shared his search with millions of readers through his essays in Cuisine, Esquire, Playboy, Food and Wine, and many other magazines, newspapers, and eight memorable books. In Search of the Perfect Meal collects forty-four of de Groot's finest essays, covering the entire career of this remarkable gastronome. De Groot's passionate love of food shines through every line of these writings, including two essays never before published. Share the author's childhood summers in Holland, filled with rich smoked hams and classic Dutch cheeses; travel to Bordeaux to find the finest caviar in the world; visit Scotland for the secret pleasures of malt whiskey; and experience many more culinary delights, accompanied by dozens of de Groot's best-loved recipes.
