More About the Author

Alexandre Dumas was born in 1802 at Villers-Cotterêts. His father, the illegitimate son of a marquis, was a general in the Revolutionary armies, but died when Dumas was only four. He was brought up in straitened circumstances and received very little education. He joined the household of the future king, Louis-Philippe, and began reading voraciously. Later he entered the cénacle of Charles Nodier and started writing.

In 1829 the production of his play, Henri III et sa Cour, heralded twenty years of successful playwriting. In 1839 he turned his attention to writing historical novels, often using collaborators such as Auguste Maquet to suggest plots or historical background. His most successful novels are The Count of Monte Cristo, which appeared during 1844-5, and The Three Musketeers, published in 1844. Other novels deal with the wars of religion and the Revolution. Dumas wrote many of these for the newspapers, often in daily instalments, marshalling his formidable energies to produce ever more in order to pay off his debts. In addition, he wrote travel books, children's stories and his Mémoires which describe most amusingly his early life, his entry into Parisian literary circles and the 1830 Revolution. He died in 1870.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a wonderful book 13 Nov 2010
By T. Drake - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I worked in Paris for two years and my co-workers gave me this book just before returning to the States. This is a wonderful book that is filled with drawings and descriptions of every imaginable ingredient, process, and flavor. I would highly recommend this book for the Francophile. It's also perfect for the budding chef that wants to explore French cuisine.

not a lot of people know that Dumas wrote about food, so when I bought this as a birthday gift for my friend who is a francophone foody, she loved it!
