by [Literary Gastronomy] King, Shirley.

A Fine copy in a Very Good plus unclipped dust jacket with light edge wear and a scratch to the rear panel. The author, a professional cook and life-long lover of Proust's writing, has compiled a gastronomic tribute to Proust and and the period of which he wrote. The collection of recipes in this volume range from the sophisticated lobster a lamericaine or truffled partidge to the simple croque-monsieur.
