Bill Buford left publishing to pursue fine French cooking and to answer one historical question – is French cuisine, really in fact, Italian? This memoir is perfectly structured, fast and full of details of French life and food.  Often funny, sometimes bittersweet, and occasionally showing the brutality that rages in the finest French restaurants, Buford shows us how method – from ingredients to presentation – is what makes French cooking unique.
