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

Upcoming Event
Saturday, December 2, 2017 at 6:00 pm

Spring has written ground-breaking biographies of 20th-century artists including Samuel Steward, Fairfield Porter, and Paul Cadmus. Now this talented cultural historian looks at a colorful and dynamic group of six American writers who helped popularize French food and wine in the United States: the well-known chefs Richard Olney and Julia Child, the wine expert Alexis Lichine, food and travel writer M.F.K. Fisher, New Yorker writer A. J. Liebling, and the inimitable Alice B. Toklas. Spring’s sparkling group portrait details his subjects’ adventures in post-war Paris and evokes both the elegance of haute cuisine and the spontaneity of bohemian life.
