Life a la Henri is the delightful memoir-with-recipes of Henri Charpentier, the world's first celebrity chef.  The book traces Henri's career from his days as a scrap of a bellboy on the French Riviera and a quick-witted apprentice in a three-star kitchen (when he invented crepe suzette) to his sailing for New York to open his renowned namesake restaurants that introduced many to the glories of haute cuisine. Life la Henri is a memorable portrait of a top-flight restaurant kitchen, and is food writing of surpassing charm and taste.
