A collection of recipes introduced in his own words: "We would like to state clearly, beginning with the very first recipes, Les Diners de Gala, with its precepts and its illustrations, is uniquely devoted to the pleasures of Taste. Don't look for dietetic formulas her: We intend to ignore those charts and tables in which chemistry takes the place of gastronomy. If you are a disciple of one of those calorie-counters who turn the joy of eating into a form of punishment, close this book at once; it is too lively, too aggressive and far too impertinent four you."
