Foreword Party Mix To be succesful, a party has to be a mix of people from different backgrounds, environments and cultures. This is the driving concept of Paris Cookbook Fair, with a mix of publishers, authors, photographers, writers, chefs, stylists, printers, professors and students from over 50 countries, with many coming from outside Europe. Paris Cookbook Fair is a feast, with chefs demonstrations at the international and French show kitchens, conferences, Malaysian street food, the treasures chamber, the wine pentathlon, the International Bar, the cheese tastings, and much more. It is also a business platform where professionals can meet at their stands or at the international rights center to conduct trade in an easy, pleasant environment with no stress. The objective is to make the Paris Cookbook Fair the hub of the cookbook business worldwide. Children books have the Bologna Book Fair, comics have AngoulĂŞme, cookbooks and wine books have now Paris. Everyone is here for the same purpose. However the diversity of the offer and demand is such now that there is something different for everyone, in price, in content and in style. I hope that trade will meet pleasure. Thank you for coming Edouard Cointreau

Delicious Foreign Rights Small streams make big rivers

By Edouard Cointreau

Why foreign rights? • For a publisher, foreign rights can make the difference between profits and losses on a book. • For an author, foreign rights can represent more than income from sales in his own country. • It is easier to receive 1000 Euros net in one very small foreign rights deal than selling 500 cookbooks at a book fair, which is what an author needs to sign and sell to make the same amount on the average cookbook. • There is little investment; it is mostly time and travel.






• Nearly all publishers now have a foreign rights department. They are the key to negotiate and sign the contracts. It is best for authors to let publishers negotiate. • When there is an agent, they often take a leading role in the negotiations, and they usually earn more for their client than the 15% they charge. • The authors very often initiate the contact with the foreign buyer. They know their book well. They can market it better than the foreign rights department who very often does not have the time to open the books. • A good author for a publisher is one that not only writes good books, but one that will easily promote himself the book, and sell foreign rights himself.

Who sells? WORLD AWAR

Who buys? • English speaking markets are more sellers than buyers. It is extremely difficult to sell to the US. • The buyers are now in Asia, Latin America and Eastern Europe. There are many small deals, rather than the one big deal. For Paris Cookbook Fair in March 2011, 13% of professionals registered on January 25th come from Asia, 10% from Eastern Europe and 7% from Latin America. • Foreign rights is a long term business, with many deals between partners who trust each other. • It is a much more personal business that it would seem. Sending a book by mail is not the same as meeting the buyer.

Who owns the foreign rights? • The majority of contracts in the English speaking world is a balanced split of 50/50 between authors and publishers. • In France it is often lower for the author, from 25 to 40%; in Spain it is higher, 60% for the author.

How do you calculate how much? • There is usually an advance, calculated as a percentage of royalties. It is wise to think all you can count upon is the advance. • Calculating the advance is easy. You need: . The retail price of your book in the market in the contract. . The number of copies of the first printing. . The royalty. . The percentage of the advance, usually 60% of the royalty. • So a book with a printing of 3000 selling at 20 Dollars in the foreign market, with a royalty of 10%, will net to the author and publisher 3.600 Dollars if the advance is 60%. Then it is split between publisher and author. 04

Delicious Foreign Rights

Happy stories? • Some publishers buy many rights. They often do their shopping at Paris Cookbook Fair or on the Gourmand stands at Frankfurt and London Fairs. They will look at all exhibition books one by one to find authors and translations. Other buyers wait for the books to come to them, or at the Gourmand Awards lists. • Paris Cookbook Fair is the key for small publishers. More than fifty percent of publishers in Paris do not have stands at Frankfurt Book Fair. In 2010,White Tara found translations in 4 languages for their Cambodian book “Au Pays de la Pomme Cythère”, Féret sold wine books to China, Chakall found deals for books in Germany, Spain, etc. We believe more than 200 deals were initiated last year at Paris Cookbook Fair 2010.

Seller beware! • The Royalties are very often “lost in translation” in foreign rights deals. Following up is much work and rarely worth it. First story.- A bestselling author complained and did receive five times his advance in unpaid royalties after much expense in audits, time and lawyers. The big publisher paid, but cancelled future books from this author, after paying him over years over 200.000 Euros. It was very difficult for him to find another publisher. Second story.- A wonderful author from Europe was so happy selling 100.000 cookbooks in the US. Unfortunately his publisher had sold the rights for this book for one dollar. The buyer was a US corporation his European publisher controlled. The unending story.- There are countless examples of books published in another language with the authors not being told about it. It happens to the biggest authors, with the biggest publishers, in the top market. So it may happen even more with smaller authors and markets. Internet is very useful. The same is true, by the way, for paperback deals.

Conclusion Foreign rights have always been a major activity at big publishers for big fiction books. Now it is becoming a key to the business of smaller publishers and authors. The growth of the cookbook sector leads to a fragmentation of the markets, with the foreign rights becoming a fundamental business. The movement is led by the authors and small publishers. The big publishers are slow to build on the possible economies of scale and synergies in their different cookbook imprints. If you have published a cookbook in one country, reality today is that there are several countries around the World where your book should and can be sold, in the original language, or through translation. In nearly all cases it will be small deals, but you cannot ignore the total income it will generate. 05

Alain Dutournier, Le Carré des Feuillants Introducing the President of Honour of Paris Cookbook Fair

Where do you eat best in France? In Brittany, with fresh fish from the Atlantic? On the Riviera, with colorful vegetables? Or in the southwest, the home of truffles and goose liver, of Bordeaux and Armagnac, where potatoes are pan-fried in goose-fat? Many French prefer the latter, when it comes to serious, no frills food. They might someday build a statue for Alain Dutournier in the middle of Place Vendôme in Paris, next to his restaurant.

Jörg Zipprick

would consider it a sin. Over the years, the carefully revamped recipes from grandma’s cookbook, the grilled wood pigeon, the steak, the lamb from the Pyrenees, found many fans under Parisian Gourmets. Who wouldn’t want to sink his fork in “Ceps mushrooms marinated, pan fried and in a warm pate”, “well bred farm quail from the Béarn region in hazelnut crust, served with asparagus and potatoes and foie gras cake or Guinea fowl cooked in “Cocotte” with chanterelles and vegetables?

Dutournier is the chef who has found a way to transform pleasant dishes from the Southwest into Haute Cuisine. Born in 1949 in the small village of Cagnotte (population: 600), his first souvenir is the smell from mother’s and grandmother’s stove – both kept a small “Auberge”. After moving to Paris, he opened the beautiful bistro “Au trou gascon” and served rural dishes from his home-region: His Cassoulet and his garbure, a rustic soup, were well-liked by the sometimes snobby Parisians.

Le Carré des Feuillants has one of the most impressive winecellars of Paris; as a matter of fact, Alain Dutournier is probobly the best connaisseur of wine and spirits among chefs. Others talk about “terroir”, the typical French word that’s a mix of home and tradition. He lives it. Alain Dutournier offers “food for heart and soul”, he knows that cooking without excellent products can be as treacherous as Isadora Duncan’s scarf.

Soon the little restaurant was too small for his talent and he opened “Le Carré de Feuillants”, designed by Alberto Bali near Place Vendôme. He developped a passion for rugby. Most foreign teams end up at his place on big match days and might fest on chestnut soup with pheasant – a dish so delicious that many

Trou Gascon is now run by his wife, and the Dutourniers continue to serve Duck confit and Cassoulet. His wineshop “Caves de Marly” offers a large selection of wines and spirits. And his third restaurant “Pinxo” is a casual Tapas-place. During Paris Cookbook Fair, Alain Dutournier will intervene on various subjects.


A Special Focus On Cheese

High quality books about cheese are now published on all continents. It is a sign of the tremendous interest in Cheese world wide. It has had two major impacts, a shift between countries, and a change in the relationship between the industry and artesanal cheese. With twenty five years delay, the same is happening in the cheese world as happened for wine. It is quicker in cheese than in wine. Many new countries are challenging with success the traditional cheese leaders. The old order was with alphabeticly France, Italy, The Netherlands, Spain, Switzerland. Now , the “new� countries join the list,Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Great Britain, Uruguay and the United States. We are not forgetting Africa, with whole populations living from milk and cheese, or Asia, from the grasslands of Mongolia to the multiplicity of India. This global market shift is certainly true for the cheese industry, it is starting for artesanal cheese. Artesanal cheeses are now produced worldwide. Industry has tried in many places to impose some prohibition regulations through lobbying. Prohibition did not work for wine, it is even more disputed for cheese. In fact, the industry has been increasing rapidly the new consumers of cheese, while a small fraction of the demand upgrades to better artisanal cheeses. Some big industries try to capitalize on the image of the artisans. From the number of books on artisanal cheese worldwide it seems that artisans have much demand, even though the road is difficult. The diversity of regulations, industry and demand for cheese will change the map, as it did for wine. At Paris Cookbook fair, we will learn there could be more knowledge when it comes to cheese in Great Britain than in France, thanks to much creativity and study over the last decades, that Brazil cheese industry is one of the top 7 in the world, and that the Swedes consider their five best cheeses to be second to none.


Italy, guest of honour of the fair Italian cuisine has been able to combine the best from traditions, creativity, and daily simplicity. This is very difficult, and it is why italian cookbooks very often have a touch of artistic genius. It has been said that everywhere in the world Italian cuisine is the second favorite after the national cuisine.

Tradition can best be seen at the stand of Bibliotheca International de Gastronomia B.I.N.G.from Lugano, Switzerland. You should read The Banquet, by the founder of B.I.N.G., Orazio Bagnasco, one of the best food literature books ever written, which would make a film to rival The Da Vinci Code. You will find amazing Italian cookbooks at the stand of Bibliotheca Culinaria, from Lodi. There are a number of great Italian publishers present, such as Gremese, Reed Gourmet, Andrea Ferrari, Il Leone Verde, and others. At the International Show Kitchen, Italian chefs will show you their skills that can easily be translated at home.


Italy, guest of honour of the fair

After the French, the Italians are the most numerous group to have registered for the Gourmand World Cookbook Awards and Paris Cookbookfair, ahead of the Germans who were second last year. It shows how much Italians are serious hosts when invited as Country of Honour. In the big Edouard Cointreau library we exhibit Italian cuisine cookbooks published in 2010 in 19 countries. In the Treasures Chamber, you can have a close look at the materpieces by Alajmo, Locatelli, Michel Troisgros and others.


Malaysian Street Food

taste dance smile... Chef Wan is conferred by the King of Malaysia the title “Datuk” at a special ceremony by the Royal Palace. It was televised live for two hours. He received the title for his hard work for 25 years as Culinary Ambassador of Malaysia. His name now is different. Datuk is part of the name, like “Sir” in Great Britain, People will need to address him as Datuk Chef Wan, or just call him Datuk. He has performed in over 6000 television shows, 12 films, and 3 theatre plays. He will be present at Paris Cookbook Fair with a delegation of Malaysia, which will include dancers and street food cooks.



Charity Cookbooks History 1847-2011 Hunger was the cause for the first Charity Cookbook published in London in 1847, for the Great Irish Famine by Chef Alexis Soyer (1810 – 1858). He wrote his book “Charitable Cookery or the Poor Man’s Regenerator” from his experience of feeding up to 26.000 people per day in Dublin. Born in France, he became the First Celebrity Chef in Great Britain, loved and admired as a heroe. Soyer was influenced by the work of François Cointeraux (1721 – 1820), advocate of rustic cooking with the potato, and professor of Rural Architecture with “Pisé” earth. Cointeraux Published the revolutionary “La Cuisine Inversée ou Le nouveau Ménage” in 1796. Thomas Jefferson and Cointeraux met in 1789 in Paris, and corresponded for many years The first American Charity Cookbook is “A Poetical Cookbook”, by María J. Moss. It was written for the 1864 Sanitary Fair, in Brooklyn, New York, in support of the wounded, widowed or orphaned by the Civil War. It is eBook 25631 of Project Gutenberg It was followed by at least 4000 Charity and Community cookbooks published in America between 1861 and 1915. Margaret Cook references over 3000 in her bibliography for that period: “America’s Charitable Cooks” (1971). There are extensive collections in American libraries, and much demand by collectors of these early Charity cookbooks. Charity and Community cookbooks became very common in America in the following years, maybe accelerated by the needs for fund raising in the Great Depression. The production has kept increasing in North America until now. It is only in the last twenty years that Charity cookbooks have really started to appear beyond the English speaking world. This new trend has become worldwide in the past five years. The Gourmand World Cookbook Awards have received an increasing number of these books. It was decided in 2008 to create a Gourmand Award for Charity Cookbooks. There is one award for Charity cookbook per continent to give equal chances to all. The next Gourmand Awards Ceremony is in Paris in March 3, 2011. The first International Exhibition of Charity Cookbooks will take place in Paris, in March 3-6, 2011 at LE 104, the new Artistic Centre of the City of Paris, during Paris Cookbook Fair, organized by Gourmand International. It commemorates the 200th Anniversary of the birth of Alexis Soyer, the Frenchman who was the author of the first Charity cookbook. Edouard Cointreau January 1st, 2011

The Edouard Cointreau Library At the Paris Cookbook Fair, we are exhibiting the one thousand cookbooks selected by the Gourmand Awards only in 2010. In the last sixteen years, the Gourmand World Cookbook Awards have received approximately 100.000 books. They have been dispatched in within 3 activities: the Gourmand Awards of the Year, exhibitions at book fairs, and gifts to libraries.

The Gourmand Awards of the Year In Madrid, the books of the year take nearly all the shelves on the walls of the office. There is constant daily work on the books. Three persons are dedicated full time to this librarian work. The exhibitions The books of the year are exhibited every year at Paris Cookbook Fair in March, London Book Fair in April, Frankfurt Book Fair in October. We have also exhibited at other fairs, in Abu Dhabi and China for instance. We also participate in smaller exhibitions such as Cookbook and Design, at the Book Design Museum in Germany. Libraries There is a very active program to help a very diverse group of libraries which have cookbook collections. We send books to over 20 libraries around the world, for instance: Cooking Schools and Universities France: Fondation Paul Bocuse • France: Le Cordon Bleu • France: Ecole D’Hotellerie de Périgueux • Lebanon: Al Kafaat Foundation – Chef Ramzi • Sweden: Grythyttam House of Meal, University of Orebro• United Kingdom: Oxford University • National Libraries Abu Dhabi • Malaysia • Restaurants and other private permanent exhibitions Spain: Sergio Azagra, Aragon • Andres Madrigal, Madrid • Miguel Sanchez Romera, Barcelona and New York • Switzerland: La Cucina Verde, Zuric • Others We have various permanent exhibitions around the World, such as in China at the National Book Trade Center in Beijing since its inauguration in 2008. Some cookbook libraries have closed, as others are threatened to be, such as Copia in California, to which we sent books.


The permanent reference collection The Edouard Cointreau Cookbook Library is now in Madrid. It is unique for its books of the last 16 years from over 160 countries. It coincides with the growth and globalization of cookbook publishing, with the number of titles in the world per year approximately multiplied by 4 since 1995. We now receive a very high proportion of the best cookbooks, and wine books worldwide. The future We will continue to send books in an active program for libraries and for exhibitions around the World. The reference collection has been requested by various public institutions to form the basis of new cookbook libraries being built in Europe and China. Various countries now understand and value cookbooks for their role in transmitting culture around the world and from one generation to another. Cuisine is becoming an important component of the image of a country, and a strong motivation for tourism. Cookbooks are now taken seriously, which was the first objective of the World Cookbook Awards which started in 1995.

Exhibitions at the Fair Le Beau Geste by Alain Passard Alain Passard, chef at Paris restaurant L’Arpège, has decided after 35 years of discretion to publish his first book of recipes, Collages & Recettes, devoted to vegetable cuisine. To communicate his passion for ‘Le beau geste’ (in the kitchen as well as the garden), he chose to illustrate his 48 seasonal recipes with collages that are also signed by him. The idea of collages was born in Japan one evening in 2008, when, suffering from jetlag, Alain Passard started to cut up and assemble his first collage in order to preserve a trace of the colors, textures and effect produced by an inevitably ephemeral vegetable dish. “They perfectly capture the influence of colors on my cooking, which are, for me, a true source of inspiration allowing me to combine shades of ingredients with the search for gustatory and visual harmony as I please”. This is why to illustrate the book, he preferred his collages to photos, as their intimacy and ambiguity leave more room for interpretation.. Le Beau Geste will be exhibited during the whole fair at the French Show Kitchen.

À chacun son fromage by Jörg Lehmann Amazing exhibition by worldkonwn photographer Jörg Lehmann. Each portrait corresponds to a particular cheese...with the most unexpected stories.

Portraits by Jörg Zipprick

Stephen Bateman Making a british chef a star and bestselling author in France? A chef with no restaurant, no Michelin stars, no reputation. Meet Stephen Bateman, the man who introduced „The naked chef“ Jamie Oliver to the French.

Bateman wanted to encourage home cooks to be social and spontaneous. Liberated from the three star perfection. Ten years ago, this was an entirely new approach to cookbook publishing that is now well- established worldwide. Every country has his “clone” of Jamie Oliver: Cyril Lignac in France, Tim Mälzer in Germany…

Stephen Bateman is a media and marketing executive with over 20 years experience in the UK and abroad. He has occupied international publishing and marketing roles and directorships at Longman, Dorling Kindersley, Hachette and F&W Media Inc. He works as an independent strategic adviser to media and education clients, helping them navigate the post-digital age and to futureproof their businesses. Stephen has worked closely with some of the world’s leading cookery authors. He is passionate about Special Interest Publishing and has first hand experience of managing multifaceted community models. But his biggest success was without doubt the introduction of Jamie Oliver on the French bookmarket. “it needed a bi-cultural publisher to be in the right place at the right time to “sell coals to Newcastle”. Bateman says. “-I had just arrived at Hachette Pratique in 2001, where 70% of the existing cookbook list was composed of works by three star Michelin chefs. These books failed to grow the market for cookbooks, appealing only to the upper classes.”

“Introducing Jamie to the French was the catalyst that set the wheels in motion for an entire generation of new cooks to emerge with whose books we reached a market of non-readers” says Bateman “We encouraged them to experiment and at home in the kitchen and to cook with attitude. Cyril Lignac is an author I launched who has since sold millions of copies.” At Paris Cookbook Fair, Stephen Bateman is going to talk about how authors can build community and future-proof their businesses in the post-digital age. He’s going to examine consumer trends, the competitive landscape and offer a solution for publishers and authors who seek to safeguard their futures in the food and drink sector.

Lisa Ekus Have you ever thought of bringing your book to the USA? What about selling your work to more than 300 million potential readers? What about creating spinoffs on American TV? Or becoming your own successful brand?

Marc Vetri, all famous, successful chefs and restaurateurs. Plus, Elizabeth Andoh, Rick Bayless, , Marcel Desaulniers, Debbi Fields, Susanna Foo, Joyce Goldstein, Marcella Hazan, Lynne Rossetto Kasper, Mollie Katzen, Nick Malgieri, Diane Morgan, Jacques Pepin, Steven Raichlen, David Joachim, Anne Willan, Virginia Willis, Paula Wolfert and more than a hundred other authors, newcomers and established food writers alike. We cannot even imagine how many successful books went through Lisa’s hands – her agency has sold more than 250 culinary manuscripts during the last decade. An agent represents the writer, bringing authors and publishers together to create a book. They work on a 15% commission. Lisa says a good agent is a combination of “business manager, mentor, mother, and mediator.” A good agent negotiates publishing contracts to reflect the best possible terms and conditions, with respect to advance monies, rights, royalties, options, copyrights, style, format, promotion, publicity, and advertising.

For most Continental European authors and publishers, this is just daydreaming. Who do you want to talk to, just to get a foot in the US market? Who’s going to listen to you? Rest assured that no Northern American publisher is in desperate need of authors. But many authors want to be published in the US market. Paris Cookbook Fair is proud to introduce the woman who moves the culinary book market on the other side of the Atlantic. Her name? Lisa Ekus. Her profession? Literary Agent in all things culinary. Her 29 year old company THE LISA EKUS GROUP, LLC (www. “Promotes a World of Culinary Talent.” Between her long-time publicity campaigns and agenting, you probably recognize many of her clients over the years: Patricia Wells, famous for her books on Paris and Provence, Craig Claiborne, who was the food critic of the New York Times, Todd English, Emeril Lagasse, Danny Meyer and Michael Romano,

You can meet Lisa Ekus at Cookbook Fair 2011 in Paris and learn more about her vision about publishing in the US during two conferences.


CONFERENCE SPEAKERS Jean-Claude Ribaut Is one of France’s leading food critics. Each week his latest recommandations are published in the well-known daily newspaper “Le Monde”. His approach to food writing is to solicit the reader’s curiosity by new approaches - cultural, literary, historical, and sociological - without ever losing sight of the essentials: The good taste. He might rehabilitate the traditional “caillette” (round meat “patties” from the Ardèche region) or praise the “pied de mouton sauce poulette” (sheepsfoot with chicken sauce; originally a leftover from a chicken fricassée).

Pierre Quélin. He also participated in the creation of an architectural magazine which he directed until 1996. Ribaut is a prolific writer who has contributed to various publications: He participated in the Gallimard edition of the “Guide to restaurants” in Paris (1995), translated in seven languages. Together with Bernard Nantet he has published “The garden of spices” (1992) at Editions du May, followed by “Taste of Havanas” (Hachette, 1998). a tribute to Cuban cigars, with Michel Creignou. In 2003 he contributed to the series “Discoveries Gallimard” the book “Wine, a matter of taste”, written together with historian Anthony Rowley. More recently he published “100% Pain” (Solar) a book about the techniques of baker Eric Kayser (2003), then “Lasserre” (Favre. 2007), with recipes by chef Jean-Louis Nomicos and “Edgard Palace” (Favre 2009).

He always has a benevolent eye on the restaurant scene but does not hesitate to criticize the latest spectres of so called molecular or avantgarde-cooking. Born in Valence (Drôme), Ribaut studied architecture and is a scholar of the Ecole Pratique des Hautes Etudes (EPHE).

His latest book was released in November 2010: “Parisian terroir” (Ed.Laymon), co-authored by chef Yannick Alleno (“Le Meurice”).

His first articles on food were published more than 30 years ago under the pseudonym Acratos (“he, who does not water his wine” which can be understood in French as somebody who will not lower his expectations or be silenced). He’s worked for “Le Monde” since 1989, at the of Food critic “La Reyniere” (not the original Grimod de la Reynière of course, but Robert Courtine), then with Jean

Périco Legasse While his name is coming straight from the Basque-country, Périco Legasse is probably the most “French” of France’s foodwriters. Unlike many authors, Legasse is not a passive observer but doesn’t hesitate a second to stand up for his ideals, in defense of true Beaujolais or real Camembert.

a hundred years, they changed course and told customers that Camembert made with raw milk presented an imminent danger and was hazardous to our health. Périco Legasse unmasked several times how industral cheeses were sold to customers as traditional products, how lobbyists have rewritten the once famed Camembert Charter for their benefit.

It’s not easy to describe the work of Périco Legasse : At age 51 he is part food-critic, recommending good restaurants every week in “Marianne”, a weekly political magazine. He has also published a guide to authentic French food.

In a Mondovino-like broadcast entitled “The cheese is being murdered”, Legasse alerted the public opinion in France 3 the public opinion back in 2007. A defender of the appellation d’origine contrôlée (AOC), which defines, specifies and codifies the French wine and food heritage, Perico Legasse complains relentlessly the mercantile excesseof intensive agriculture under pressure of industrial lobbies and mass distribution. He created the “Marianne of Wine”, which rewards winemakers true to the spirit of the AOC.

Since September 2009, he works as a TV-host on the “Parlamentary channel – national Assembly” with his show “Toques & politiques” where political debates meet regional food heritage. And when it comes to culinary tradition, he might become an activist or a French equivalent to Ralph Nader: He opposes the food industry on a regular basis, accusing it of “perverting” food. For years, he was among the leaders in the so-called “Camembert wars”. On one side: Périco Legasse and “Marianne”. On the other: Lactalis, Europe’s largest cheese producer with 125 plants worldwide, 32,000 employees and €9.6 billion ($12.2 billion) in annual sales. Lactalis and the Isigny Sainte-Mère dairy co-operative had announced their intention to halt the large-scale production of raw milk Camembert. Thermized, micro-filtered, industrially processed, cheap milk would be the new ingredient of “Camembert AOC”. Both companies together were responsible for 10,000 of the 13,000 tons of Camembert produced in France each year. In other words: 42 million of 52 million boxes of cheese. And now, after

Perico Legasse also conducted the investigation for the film “Our children will accuse us”, directed by Jean-Paul Jaud, released on November 5, 2008, whose central theme is food poisoning by toxins (pesticides , fungicides, fertilizers, etc..). While some foodwriters prefer to talk about restaurants, Périco Legasse captures the big picture: Without good ingredients, there’ll be no good food and no restaurants worth to write about. Périco Legasse is going to talk about his ideas of food-journalism and protecting France’s traditions during Paris Cookbook Fair.

FOUR DAYS IN PARIS Some books for your days in Paris...

LA VIE PARISIENNE by Victor Arwas Papadakis Publishing

A saucy, light-hearted look at life in Paris before the Great War, when life was enjoyed to the full and the pursuit of the grisette was high on the list of male preoccupations. La Vie Parisienne was the magical name of a journal, which proclaimed itself proudly as the masthead of a way of life where frivolity, wit and satire were as important and relevant as literary and political intellectualism. The well-loved weekly attempted a fresh mix of humorous cartoons, short stories, sharp tales of fashion-folk, up-to-the-minute gossip about prominent persons, columns of aphorisms on such subjects as marriage (“Marriage is the only painful operation for which no anaesthetic is allowed”) or love (“Without jealousy the most violent passions would not last a week”), fashion-orientated banter set out as pages of dialogue, and acid comments about all. Somewhat surprisingly, the mixture took. Founded in 1863, Parisians bought it in sufficient numbers week after week to ensure its survival for over a century. This was an age when women were frivolous and uninhibited, and when drawing reigned supreme. The result is an amusing, delightful book to be enjoyed and shared. It is a microcosm of a period when life was unashamedly fun.
