Facing the Musique

2011 February 26

The French edition of my book about the rise, fall, and future of French cuisine comes out on Wednesday. It is titled La cuisine française: un chef-d’oeuvre en péril, and last week, the publisher, Fayard, brought me to Paris to do some PR. Needless to say, I was anxious about the reception that awaited me. An American pronouncing last rites on French gastronomic supremacy? I had visions of being chased down the Champs-Élysées by a bunch of irate French chefs wielding kitchen knives and rolling pins. So how did it go? That’s the subject of my latest Slate column.
