Summary
"Life a la Henri is the delightful memoir-with-recipes of Henri Charpentier, the world's first celebrity chef. First published in 1934, and back in print after nearly six decades, the book traces Henri's career from his days as a scrap of a bellboy on the French Riviera and a quick-witted apprentice in a three-star kitchen (when he invented crepe suzette) to his sailing for New York to open his renowned namesake restaurants that introduced many to the glories of haute cuisine. Life a la Henri is a memorable portrait of a top-flight restaurant kitchen, and is food writing of surpassing charm and taste."--BOOK JACKET
