Flavorwire, Lives of Notorious Cooks

November 27, 2013

Flavorwire lists Lives of Notorious Cooks amongst the 50 Essential Novels for Foodies.

Second “best-of-type-list” this month… Anyhow, a sort of interesting list.

Funny that some guy who thinks he owns the two English words “Great Chefs” wanted to sue over the original title. So petty.

Small Press Book Review, Lives of Notorious Cooks

April 24, 2013

Sam Moss gives reviews Lives of Notorious Cooks favorably.

A quote:

“Playing with obscure delicacies and very probable (but probably impossible) dishes he serves us eight pound swallow tongue pies by the truckload, wormwood cakes and the moon (or so it seems…). The lists of ornate, luxurious and sometimes revolting dishes goes on and on and provides just as much entertainment as the stories themselves.”
