Drawing on, among other sources, the journals of his great aunt, M.F.K. Fisher, Barr chronicles a remarkable six weeks or so in the South of France when Fisher, Julia Child, Simone Beck, James Beard, Richard Olney, and the great editor Judith Jones were all in the area, often visiting back and forth. Americans were on the verge of a changing relationship with French food, indeed with food in general, and these legendary figures were discussing over a glass of wine in terms generally friendly-or sometimes less so-the implications of a new era. What a series of encounters to relive!
