I found this well thumbed book in a house where I lived in France.

Knowing and having lived the French “obsession” with food for three months I feel it might be interesting to look at its contents a bit deeper. You can be sure its interesting, even if only because it was published in 1935. Although the contrast with a similar British approach might also hold some lessons.
