(Food Writing) Wechsberg, Joseph. Blue Trout and Black Truffles: The Peregrinations of an Epicure.
Jacket. First Edition. NY: Knopf. 1953.
Wechsberg, a Jewish Czech writer, journalist, musician, and gourmet, wrote this love letter to European fine dining in 1953. It is replete with delightful reminiscences of the world of fine food and good wine back to the Hapsburg empire. Price clipped, heavy chipping to jacket spine ends, darkening to jacket spine, otherwise very good.
