    France is in a rut, and so is French cuisine. Twenty-five years ago it was hard to have a bad meal in France; now, in some cities and towns, it is a challenge to find a good one. For the first time in the annals of modern cooking, the most influential chefs and the most talked-about restaurants in the world are not French. Within France, large segments of the wine industry are in crisis, cherished artisanal cheeses are threatened with extinction, and bistros and brasseries are disappearing at an alarming rate.

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    On one hand, the author lays out a strong argument and reasons for the decline in French culture........however, one can't come away thinking that Steinberger can only find well prepared food unless it is in a 3 star Michelin restaurant.........and the uber-inflated bill that goes along with that.Found the book lagged in the middle with an endless array of the comings and goings of the great French chefs. After investing 8 hours into this thing, came away unfulfilled..........


    Would you recommend Au Revoir to All That to your friends? Why or why not?

    NO
