Starting life in the gutter, Jean-Marie d'Aumout rises through the ranks of eighteenth-century French society propelled by his wits and an obsession with finding the perfect taste. But beyond the palace walls, revolution is in the air and the country is clamouring with a hunger of a different kind.

Review:
"Racily picaresque, energetic and clever" (Guardian)

"An astonishing, sensual feast which will appeal to those who enjoyed Patrick Susskind's Perfume" (David Barnett Independent on Sunday)

"A true feast for the senses" (Scotsman)

"Intriguing, fanciful, philosophical and told with an admirable lightness of touch" (Daily Mail)

"The Last Banquet is a feast for the senses; dark, sensual and unexpected. I loved it" (JOJO MOYES)

"Wonderfully enjoyable. Grimwood captures the colour, the decadence and tawdry glamour of Versailles beautifully. I loved the complexity of the relationships, and sensual quality reminded me at times of Angela Carter. Masterful" (CAROL BIRCH author of JAMRACH’S MENAGERIE)

"A delicious sensory overload" (Marina O'Loughlin)

"Jonathan Grimwood's intelligent story of lost innocence... follows convincingly in the traditions established by Patrick Suskind's Perfume and Andrew Miller's Pure" (Times Literary Supplement)

"As a piece of historical fiction, there is not an ounce of fat on it - a compliment, even for a work so concerned with the food of France" (The Times)

"A tantalising tale, be prepared for some dark mystery and decadent recipes. A must for lovers of Suskind's Perfume and Miller's Pure" (The Bookseller)
Book Description:

A STORY OF REVOLUTION, OBSESSION AND ONE MAN'S HUNGER
