"A beautifully rendered art-cookbok."

From the Back Cover

At the Auberge Ravoux, in a tiny artists' village twenty miles from Paris, Vincent Van Gogh experienced a burst of creativity, producing some seventy works in an astounding seventy days. The auberge, his last home, operates today as the Maison de Van Gogh, and little has changed in the intervening century: visitors are still treated to the comforting, delicious cuisine that he would have enjoyed in 1890. Van Gogh's Table is an intimate view into this world, as revealing as sharing poulet and pommes sautées with the artist himself: fifty recipes; a richly detailed history of this period of the artist's life; a fascinating examination of the central role of the café in French culture; and carefully selected engravings, postcards, letters, and paintings, all woven together into a singular perspective on a man and a place, during a remarkable moment in history.

This gorgeous cookbook incorporates my favorite artist's life in cafes and historical cooking and recipes in a delightful cookbook that reads and views more like a work of art.

There is a tinge of sadness knowing that Aubuerge was his last home, but I find it amazing to make a dish that history has dined on and realize that many of these cafes still exist.

Van Gogh's Table: At the Auberge Ravoux will feed your soul and your belly. It is a visual and gastronomic treat.

Van Gogh's life has always interested me and this book did a great job with the time he spent in Auberge Ravoux, a tiny artists' village, outside of Paris. It was his last home that he enjoyed with numerous friends in the town; while being a very creative period of his life, with him producing 70 works in the 70 days that he lived there. The last part of the book, approximately a third of it, contains many recipes that would be fun to duplicate, such as: Fillet of Striped Bass w/Panfried Leeks and Beurre Blanc, Cherry Clafouti, Scrambled Eggs w/Asparagus and Apple Tartletts with Caramel Sauce. If you're interested in him, this is a book you will enjoy!

Some nice pictures, but complicated recipes that I haven't been inspired to try. I doubt Vincent was dining on the food in this book. If I could only have one artist-recipe book I would go with the Monet edition. If I could have two I would pick the William Morris version as runner up. This one tied with the Renoir.

I will enjoy perusing this book. Must say, however, that Van Gogh could not have eaten this way. He was destitute. He sacrificed nutrition in favor of paints, and the alcohol he used to sleep at night.
