KIRKUS REVIEW

Interesting biography of a Frenchman who revolutionized English cooking and whose life would be entertaining from a purely frivolous angle even if the interest were not enhanced by the really useful and important work he did during the Crimean War and the Irish potato famine. Double angle -- human interest and cookery.
