I believe I'm within the rules if I quote just part of the opening paragraph?

What do "rogues, writers and whores" have to do with food? A great deal, according to Daniel Rogov, a columnist for Le Monde in Paris. He leads us on a literately louche tour of two millennia of culinary history, highlighting food-linked immortals from the Latin gourmand Lucius Licinius Lucullus to A.J. Liebling, the American journalist who made Paris his adopted home. - The OnLine Journal - "Gastronomy" - By ARAM BAKSHIAN JR. - June 2, 2007; Page P8

The review goes on to mention sections from the book dealing with food related stories of various characters including writers Pepys, Hemmingway, Proust, and Joyce. Historical royal figures are apparently also featured.

From the tone of the piece I would say it was "favorably reviewed". :smile:

Great job Daniel.
