“…there is a difficulty in bringing to life in one’s own kitchen the memories of gastronomic travels.  Most of us do not wish to eat at home as we do in restaurants, nor would we want to cook like expert chefs  every day even if we knew how.”–Narcisse Chamberlain and Narcissa G. Chamberlain, The Flavor of France in Recipes & Pictures

The Rambling Epicure. Editor, Jonell Galloway. Simon Says, Simon de Swaan

Narcisse Chamberlain was the daughter of cookbook writers Samuel and Narcissa G. Chamberlain. Her father, Samuel, was one of the founders of Gourmet Magazine, and along with his wife and daughter, teamed up to help make French food accessible to American homes in the 1950s and 60s.  Narcisse Chamberlain’s books and papers can be found at the Schlesinger Library at Harvard University.
