A Court in Germany ordered that access to certain items in the Project Gutenberg collection are blocked from Germany. Project Gutenberg believes the Court has no jurisdiction over the matter, but until the issue is resolved, it will comply. For more information about the German court case, and the reason for blocking all of Germany rather than single items, visit PGLAF's information page about the German lawsuit.
All IP addresses in Germany are blocked. This block will remain in place until legal guidance changes. Project Gutenberg updates its listing of IP addresses approximately monthly. Occasionally, the website mis-applies a block from a previous visitor. If your IP address is shown by Maxmind to be outside of Germany and you were momentarily blocked, another issue is that some Web browsers erroneously cache the block.

The software we use sometimes flags "false positives" -- that is, blocks that should not have occurred. Apologies if this happened, because human users outside of Germany who are making use of the eBooks or other site features should almost never be blocked.

The Physiology of Taste
S ince its completion in , this handbook has appeared in so many different guises — from 's Gastronomy as a Fine Art to The Philosopher in the Kitchen in — that much of its wisdom has become idiomatic. Brillat-Savarin was, for example, the first to coin the phrase: "You are what you eat" — item four in a long list of "Aphorisms of the Professor" intended as "a lasting foundation for the science of gastronomy". In fact, Brillat was no professor, but a judge who often worked on his magnum opus while presiding in court. His life spanned perhaps the most turbulent period of France's history. As Bill Buford writes in the introduction, he was "witness to what France no longer is and what it was about to become — especially in the way it thought about food". It would be hard to place this book, which meanders from ruminations on the "inconveniences of obesity" to the philosophical history of cooking, in any one genre; it is perhaps best characterised as an intimate account of a man's passionate relationship with food. But the result is certainly appetising.
The Physiology of Taste.
It was about the events that surrounded a meal, the interaction we have with one another, and about our true nature as Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin. First published in France in and continuously in print ever since, The Physiology of Taste is a historical, philosophical, and ultimately Epicurean collection of recipes, reflections, and anecdotes on everything and anything gastronomical. Brillat-Savarin, who spent his days eating through the famed food capital of Dijon, lent a shrewd, exuberant, and comically witty voice to culinary matters that still resonate today: the rise of the destination restaurant, diet and weight, digestion, and taste and sensibility.
