About the Author
Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin (1755-1826) was a French lawyer and politician, whose book, The Physiology of Taste, published in 1825, is still inspiring chefs and food enthusiasts alike, particularly through his essay 'On Gourmandism'. It contains some of the most famous dinner table witticisms and aphorisms in history, including 'Tell me what you eat, and I will tell you what you are.'"
