Whether telling us where to buy the world's best caviar or how to order a pair of thirteen-hundred-dollar custom-made shoes, advising us on the high cost of keeping a mistress in style or the pros and cons of households servants, he covers everything the well-heeled--and those vicariously so inclined--need to know to enjoy the good life.u003cbru003e u003cbru003e From gastronomy to matrimony, from the sartorial to the baronial, u003ciu003eAcquired Tastesu003c/iu003e is Peter Mayle's most delicious book yet--an irreverently spiced smorgasbord of rich dishes you're sure to enjoy.u003cbru003e u003cbru003e u003cbu003ePraise for u003ciu003eAcquired Tastesu003c/iu003eu003c/bu003eu003cbru003e u003cbru003e "Mr. Mayle is a writer who never fails to entertain.
