Curnonsky
(Maurice Edmund Sailland)

(1872 - July 22, 1956)

Curnonsky was the pen name of Maurice Edmond Sailland, a French writer, novelist, biographer, and gastronome.

He was known as the 'Prince of Gastronomes,' a title he was awarded in a public referendum in 1927, and a title no one else has been given since. At the height of his prestige, 80 restaurants around Paris would hold a table every night in case he showed up.

Supposedly in his later years he was so heavy he was unable to walk and had to be carried by six friends to his favorite restaurants. On July 22, 1956, at the age of 84, Curnonsky leaned too far out of his window and fell to his death.
