Dumas, Alexandre (pere) (1802-70)

French author, famous for writing 'The Three Musketeers' and the 'Count of Monte Cristo'.

From a culinary point of view, he wrote an enormous dictionary on food - which was published posthumously in 1872. It was called 'Le Grand Dictionnaire de Cuisine', and wasn't misnamed, as it contained over 700,000 words.
