A Culinary Legacy from Escoffier to Today, by Karen Mitcham-Stoeckley and Max Callegari, is far more than a cookbook. It offers the reader an entrance into the daily life of a small village in Provence, France through food and the interpretation of recipes over 100-years-old. The photos provide this journey with explicit depiction of not only many of the dishes, but of the lively activity of the markets and village life in a medieval French town. The book ties together the writings and work of a young Escoffier-trained chef of the late 1800’s to the culinary endeavors of his granddaughter and a classical trained chef of Provence in the 21st century. 160 pages.
