We will discuss ‘Ritz and Escoffier: The Hotelier, the Chef and the Rise of the Leisure Class’ by Luke Barr.

Luke Barr explores the advent of the luxe life through the saga of hotelier Cesar Ritz and chef Auguste Escoffier, whose partnership brought us not only the adjective ‘ritzy’, itself no small testament, but also such once-novel phenomena as hotel rooms with their own bathrooms, and innovative dishes like peach Melba.

It’s a charming tale of success, scandal, and redemption–complete with an unexpected villain.
