review ô eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Ò Anka Muhlstein Free read  Balzacs Omelette ↠ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB 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 Ho. There are two grand themes in Balzac s oeuvre one is money and most particularly debt and the other is food Of this second theme Anka Muhlstein does full justice with her book Balzac s Omelette A Delicious Tour of French Food and Culture with Honore de Balzac Even though I have read over 95% of Balzac s work in a Yahoo Group dedicated to him I am still amazed by Ms Muhlstein s marshaling of a mass of information into a coherent and I might even say tasty wholeThere is for example this gen from Cousin Pons one of my favorite novels by the masterOne of the keenest pleasures of Pons old life one of the joys of the dinner table parasite was the surprise the thrill produced by the extra dainty dish added triumphantly to the bill of fare by the mistress of a bourgeois house to give a festive air to a dinner Pons stomach hankered after that gastronomical satisfaction Dinner proceeded without le plat couvert as our grandsires called it Pons had too much delicacy to grumble but if the case of unappreciated genius is hard it goes harder still with the stomach whose claims are ignoredAs M de Mortsauf says in The Lily of the Valley all our emotions converge on the gastric centres Curiously despite its highly focused subject I think Balzac s Omelette is not only an excellent introduction to the work of Balzac in general but also to Dumas Zola Flaubert de Maupassant and other French novelists of the 19th century
