Bon Anniversaire Monsieur Montagné

Prosper Montagné was born on this day in 1865 in Carcassonne, France.

Monsieur Montagné is best known for creating the great culinary encyclopedia, Larousse Gastronomique, which is an indispensable addition to any kitchen library.

Bon anniversaire! Pin It

I have a paperback, two-volume version of this classic -- not the "real thing" but handy nonetheless...

I was surprised to learn that he was born in Carcassonne, just down the road!
