Justin Spring - "The Gourmand's Way: Six Americans in Paris and the Birth of a New Gastronomy"

In his new biography THE GOURMAND'S WAY: Six Americans in Paris and the Birth of a New Gastronomy Justin Spring focuses on the most joyful, exciting, formative, and dramatic moments in the lives of six pre-eminent writers, many of which were intimately connected to the exploration and discovery of fine French food and drink―whether they experienced it at top Michelin-starred restaurants or straight from a hot plate in an artist’s garret. The Gourmands’ Way leads us through both the fabled world of haute cuisine and the vibrant bohemian and artistic haunts of the Left Bank during the 1950s.
