The beautiful story of cookbooks
By Philippe Ligron

The Physiology of Taste of Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin is his Bible: Philippe Ligron, former professor of cuisine at the Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne, head of Food Experience at the Vevey Alimentarium, tells us the great story of cookbooks. Since the dawn of time, cooking has never ceased to progress. Passing on this knowledge to the next generations has always been the concern of great chefs. In an empirical way, but also through numerous writings, each one more beautiful than the other. From The Culinary Art of Apicius to Freddy Girardet's Gourmet Emotions, Philippe Ligron reveals how these mythical works have crossed the centuries to come down to us.
