A celebration of eating with gusto. Nan Lyons serves up delicious tidbits about the world's most lavish banquets and dedicated diners---all accompanied by some of the best dining art the world has to offer. Chapters include "Fabulous Feasts," "Food Fetishes from Rome to Nome", and "Haute Bloat". There are over two dozen recipes adapted for GLUTTONY, including Baked Foie Gras a' La Varenne, Escoffier's Lobster Newburg, and gilded chocolate cognac tuffles. Gael Greens called Ms. Lyons work "Juicier than a Long Island duckling."
