The Baron Brisse was the administrator of Forests under the government of Louis-Philippe but around 1850, he quit his post to devote himself to gastronomy and food writing. He published a great number of articles among which were the daily menus that he prepared for the journal La Libert√©. These menus were eventually to become the basis of his CALENDRIER GASTRONOMIQUE. Although he was a celebrity amongst the gourmands of the time, his book was aimed at the French Housewife. The first version was published in 1867.
