White Truffles in Winter
A NovelBook - 2012
A reimagining of the world of the remarkable French chef Auguste Escoffier. A man of contradictions, food-obsessed yet rarely hungry, Escoffier was also torn between two women: the famous, beautiful, and reckless actress Sarah Bernhardt and his wife, the independent and sublime poet Delphine Daffis, who refused ever to leave Monte Carlo. A novel of the sensuality of food and love amid a world on the verge of war.
