Note: the review for this narrative is based on the 2nd edition of this book. I had a much longer review to write (unfortunately the power going out during a storm took the review before it could be saved), but I think the best reaction I could sum up this read – for me – was “Ye Gods, this book was very well done.” 264 more words

“Tell me where you eat, what you eat, and at what time you eat, and I will tell you who you are.” This is the motto of Anka Muhlstein’s erudite and witty book about the ways food and the art of the table feature in Honoré de Balzac’s The Human Comedy.
