I am 3/4 of the way through it. I like Jacques. I have the Time-Life book he's talking about and the pictures are amazing. The whole story of him working for the president of France is just such happy serendipity. If there are books out there about Henri Soule and Le Pavillon, and I think there may be, I'd love to know more about them. I ate at Le Grenouille in the early 70's and I'm guessing it was sort of the last gasp of those kinds of places. Nice trip that was, lunch in the pool room at the Four Seasons, guy walks through saying, "Paging Mr. Joseph E. Levine." Had veal with morels and creamed salsify. Dinner the snobby waiter just threw at us, tenderloin roast and overdone asperge. I gave him a short tip and shrugged and said , "Quelle fromage," on the way out.
