Summary

F. Scott Fitzgerald's Taste of France is a culinary tour of Paris and the Riviera during the 1920s.

Take a culinary tour of Paris and the Riviera in the 1920s, a time when American writers and artists flocked to Europe. Carol Hilker has collected over 60 recipes inspired by the decadent food and drink enjoyed by F. Scott Fitzgerald and his fellow expatriates. Transport yourself to a café on boulevard Montparnasse and breakfast on Croque Monsieur accompanied by a Bloody Mary, or lunch on Caviar sandwiches and Champagne. Idle away the hours on the sun-soaked French coast with an al fresco supper of Shrimp Cocktail, Steak Frites, and Riviera Fruit Salad, or throw a party to rival Gatsby’s most glamorous affair and serve Harlequin Salad and Gin Rickeys. With features such as Drunk Before Noon exploring the flight from Prohibition in the USA and the resulting development of cocktail culture in France, Americans in Paris on the expat community to which Fitzgerald was introduced by Ernest Hemingway, and Chefs de Paris celebrating the great traditions of French cookery, F. Scott Fitzgerald's Taste of France is a gourmet journey you won’t want to miss.
