Summary
"When Raymond Sokolov became food editor of The New York Times in 1971, he began a long, memorable career as restaurant critic, food historian, and author. Here he traces the food scene he reported on in America and abroad, from his pathbreaking dispatches on nouvelle cuisine chefs like Paul Bocuse and Michel Guérard in France to the rise of contemporary American food stars like Thomas Keller and Grant Achatz, and the fruitful collision of science and cooking in the kitchens of El Bulli in Spain, the Fat Duck outside London, and Copenhagen's gnarly Noma"--Dust jacket flap
Summary
Traces four decades of culinary revolution from the publication of Julia Child's French cooking classic through the diverse practices of today, covering such topics as the introduction of nouvelle cuisine and the rise of American food stars
