Staff Reviews


In Paris, the world’s greatest food critic is dying.  Adored by some and loathed by many, he is desperately longing for one last taste of…something.  Barbery’s writing and word choices are beautiful.

Keep a dictionary at hand!

“The perfect foodie book! Monsieur Pierre Arthens, the food critic from The Elegance of the Hedgehog, has been given two days to live and so embarks on a gastric search as he recounts the food -- and people -- that he's devoured in an attempt to find one last, elusive flavor.”
— Mary Cowen, Anderson's Bookshop, Naperville, IL

Description


In the heart of Paris, in the posh building made famous in The Elegance of the Hedgehog, the greatest food critic in the world is dying. Revered by some and reviled by many, Monsieur Pierre Arthens has been lording it over the world's most esteemed chefs for years. But now, during these, his final hours, his mind has turned to simpler things. He is desperately searching for that singular flavor, that sublime something once sampled, never forgotten, the Flavor par excellence.
