Format: Hardcover
"Monet's Table" is a gorgeous exploration of everyday life in the Impressionist household. While Claude Monet revolutionized art, his cuisine at Giverny incorporated the everyday pleasures of Normandy. There are classic dishes like Coquilles St. Jacques and foie gras, but there are also stuffed onions and broth. Claude Monet even kept cooking journals. This is a discovery for those who have only seen his artwork. (I'd also recommend "Frida's Feasts" about the cuisine of Mexican painter Frida Kahlo) Monet put as much work into his cooking as he did his painting. The kitchen was also his canvas. Bon appetit!

This is the most spectacular cook book I have ever seen, splashed with the colours of Monet's house and gardens, garnished with photos of the foods served therein. I wish I had his kitchen stove - it looks as though it provides 24 square feet of cooking surface. Biographical notes put it all into historical and human perspective; and to top it all off ... the recipes. Ah, the recipes, all placed before us in modern terms that make these wondrous foods perfectly doable. After reading 'Monet's Table' and trying out the mussels in herbs, I bought three more copies to send to my closest foodie friends.

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