Says the dust jacket, “High Bonnet is an epicure’s own oddyssey. a picaresque romance of the haute cuisine. Its hero is Jean-Marie Gallois, who travels from Provence to the great kitchens of Paris, masters the culinary art at the Faisan d’Orand the Poi Nantois, and does not lose his hauteur in Spain at the end of the book when bombs start to drop. This is a rambling novel, Bellocian in its gusto for the wines and dishes of all parts of the world.”

M.F.K. Fisher writes–for the back of the dust jacket–“High Bonnet will tease the palate of the mind . . . and that is one of the important things, now when it is so plain that man cannot live by bread alone. It is nourishing, as well as stimulating thing to read, because Idwal Jones writes about food and feeds more than the bodies of his fabulous characters.”
