Brillat-Savarin (1755 - 1826), a lawyer and politician, was quite possibly the most famous French epicure and gastronome of all. Here he discourses on the pleasures of the table. His reputation was revitalized by his influence over Chairman Kaga of the TV series Iron Chef which introduced to millions the mot "Tell me what you eat, and I will tell you what you are." He is often considered the father of the low-carbohydrate diet.
