Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Chamberlain family spent a dozen blissful years in pre World War II France, with their beloved cook, Clementine, learning the gustatory pleasures of snail hunting in their backyard and bottling their own wine. When war rumblings sent them scurrying Stateside, Clementine refused to be left behind and made a new home for herself in Marblehead, Massachusetts, where she introduced the initially suspicious Yankees to the pleasures of la cuisine de bonne femme. First published in 1943, Clementine in the Kitchen is a charming portrait of a family of gastronomic adventurers, and a mouth-watering collection of more than 170 traditional French recipes. This Modern Library Food series edition includes a new Introduction by Jeffrey Steingarten, food critic for Vogue and author of The Man Who Ate Everything, winner of the Julia Child Book Award.

About the Author

Samuel Chamberlain was the author of nearly fifty illustrated books on European, American, and gastronomic subjects. After living for more than a dozen years in France, he and his family settled permanently in Marblehead, Massachusetts, in 1939. He and his wife, Narcissa, were frequent contributors to Gourmet magazine.

I must have had this cookbook, "Clementine in the Kitchen," since the 1960's. It never drew my attention until I had read "Sarah's Key."

One book is a very serious fictional book and one is a jovial non-fiction cookbook (only the writer's name is ficticious)both,you might say, of French history.

I was fascinated with the contrast of life in France during the late 1930's and early 1940's for the Beck's (aka Chamberlin's) and Sarah's family.

After reading the sad "Sarah's Key," the light and comic "Clementine in the Kitchen" was just the right book to lighten my mood.

The book is authored by Phineas Beck; Samuel Chamberlain drew the wonderful illustrations. I do not understand why the later editions (I have the 1943 edition) seem to come up with Chamberlain as the author. Anyway, it is a warm wonderful book, and if you also cook out of it, your friends will be lucky people.
