Curnonsky was the pen name of Maurice Sailland who, in 1927, was voted Prince of Gastronomes . He founded the Academie des Gastronomes in 1930 and the review Cuisine et Vins de France in 1947. This book is hailed as the Bible of French cuisine in France and contains 1200 recipes of all kinds. It divides into four sections: haute cuisine, plain bourgeois fare, provincial cookery and impromptu cookery. Suitable wine suggestions follow each recipe and a separate chapter offers information and advice on French wines and wine-growing regions.
