Back in the 1980s, Caroline Conran collaborated with the major nouvelle cuisine chefs, getting credit on the title page as joint author along with Alain Senderens, Georges Blanc, Jaques Maximin, Jean and Pierre Troisgros and Michel Guerard. These were serious books, minimally illustrated. Caroline is by nature a generous collaborator and careful in her documentation, so that this little collection now stands as a major historical document -- totally unlike the tarted-up showpieces that have succeeded them.

Well, one ghoster I know has turned out what I consider to be very classy products but her name never appears and she is underpaid and underappreciated. Her list of supposed Authors is just as impressive. Other times, other mores.
