Nignon was chef to the emperors Nicholas II of Russia and Franz Joseph I of Austria as well as at Hotel Claridge's in London. In 1908, he bought Larue Restaurant in Paris, and is regarded as a founder of modern French cuisine, influencing chefs who invented nouvelle cuisine with his use of lighter sauces and seasonings and unusual combinations of ingredients. Flers (1872-1927) was a playwright, librettist, and journalist, and at the time he wrote this preface, literary editor of Le Figaro. N. B.
