Publisher's Summary

A breathtaking novel, rare and moving, about the world's greatest chef and his unruly heart.
White Truffles in Winter imagines the world of the remarkable French chef Auguste Escoffier (1846-1935), who changed how we eat through his legendary restaurants at the Savoy and the Ritz. A man of contradictions - kind yet imperious, 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. In the last year of Escoffier's life, in the middle of writing his memoirs, he has returned to Delphine, who requests a dish in her name as he has honored Bernhardt, Queen Victoria, and many others. How does one define the complexity of love on a single plate? N. M. Kelby brings us the sensuality of food and love amid a world on the verge of war in this work that shimmers with beauty and longing.

Not My Favorite

What disappointed you about White Truffles in Winter?

Narrator decreased the value of this story. Interesting history/person to read about, but losing so much by the way it's narrated. No

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of N. M. Kelby?

Anyone with more pizzaz; needs more voice distinction and expression!

Any additional comments?

This is the first time I've written a review after listeniing to hundreds of books. Obviously this one disappoints me enough to invest some time so others can check it out before buying.
