"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.

Format: Paperback
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.

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.

Format: Paperback
Part of a series presenting history, art, everyday habits, surroundings, and meals of French artists like VanGogh. Very well done with great photos and recipes. Series also covers Cezanne, Renoir and Monet.
