Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin (1755–1826) was a lawyer and the mayor of Belley, France, before he fled the Revolution in 1793. After a brief exile in the United States, he returned to Paris and was appointed a judge in the court of appeals. He spent the last twenty five years of his life living in Paris and writing this book.
