Why don't you look at Escoffier or Careme?

A couple of other ideas (though you can't go wrong with Escoffier or Careme)...Fernand Point (his book Ma Gastronomie is a great read) or a more contemporary chef, Louis Szathmary, whom I had the pleasure of meeting

Louis was GREAT. Just thought about Ranhoffer as well. He was the chef at Delmonico's who wrote one of the classics.

Chef Gary Holleman, the true Father of the Culinary Internet. Read through the posting from this link and your will have plenty to write about. (and I'll bet your'e the only one who does)

Gary helped make this site what it is today by givng me insight and encouragement to pursue it, eventhough others might have considered me a compeditor. He was the founder of .
