A vintage cookery book which is the 10th edition of Baron Brisse's book of 1,200 recipes organized is 366 menus.
Baron Brisse, an important figure of the guild of gourmands of the nineteenth century, attracted attention by publishing every day in the newspaper La Liberte the menu of the meal that he proposed to the reader to realize the next day.
His menus drove the attention of an informed audience until the day when an acclaimed chef had the idea of serving them day by day in his restaurant. Brisse became a Parisian celebrity and was often caricatured in the press, with his head surrounded by truffles and foie gras.
Fair condition: binding is worn, corners are rubbed, some foxing, a little piece of a page glued on facing page (see dedicated picture), other minor defects.
