Found Meals of the Lost Generation: Recipes and Anecdotes from 1920s Paris.
by [Expatriate Meals] Rodriguez-Hunter, Suzanne.

Publisher Information:
Faber and Faber, Boston: : 1994.

A Fine bright unread copy in a Fine bright dust jacket . The author has recreated thirty real-life Paris gatherings of artists, writers, dancers and musicians, provided the setting, the guest list, the conversation and of course the food into an engaging look at the social life of Paris in the 20s. Availing herself of more than 100 biographies, memoirs, letters and novels, Rodriguez-Hunter's research yields abundant references to food and meals of the Moderns from the now-historic banquet thrown by Picasso and Gertrude Stein for Henri Rousseau in 1908, to the exalted Cucumber Sandwiches a la Oscar Wilde served at the weekly salon of Natalie Barney; Kiki's Boeuf Daube from her native Burgandy; and the Truite Grenobloise dinner A.J. Liebling shared with his father in 1927 at Maillabuau's, then one of Paris' best restaurants. The author devotes each chapter to one or more important expat personality, from Antheil to Zelda, with a deftly distilled biography and a relevant, often amusing anecdote or quote relating to an actual meal. Once equipped with a genuine menu, she proceeds with recipes that replicate the meal as authentically as possible.
