The Edible Books selection for November is White Truffles in Winter by N.M. Kelby.
Earlier this month we spent a little time with the author Nicole Kelby, read the first part of our interview here.
White Truffles in Winter is a novel about world-famous French chef Auguste Escoffier. Called the king of chefs and chef of kings, Escoffier was also a restaurateur, author, a leader in the development of modern French cuisine, and credited with introducing the organized brigade de cuisine system in his kitchens.
But this novel goes beyond Escoffier’s well-known public persona, to invite us into an imaginative story of his private world, filled with glamour, romance, war, and of course food.
Get ready to travel back in time to the turn of the 20th Century–and bring a snack, because reading this book will make you hungry!
Happy Reading! ~ Christina & Natalie
