Food historian

Dubois, former chef de cuisine to Kaiser Wilhelm I, penned this remarkable book in English while he was hiding in London from the Franco-Prussian war. Unlike his other books, which are mainly aimed at high status professionals, this beautifully illustrated recipe collection is for the Victorian domestic cook who wanted to attempt the most fashionable French dishes of the period.
