It's well known that Claude Monet was a gourmand as well as an artistic genius. His culinary journals are filled with detailed recipes and notes about what he ate and with whom he shared his meals. Now, sixty of those recipes are gathered in this elegantly produced book brimming with the colors and flavors of Giverny, France. Each chapter features recipes that were served in Monet's famed yellow dining room, eaten al fresco in the gardens at Giverny, or at several of the fine restaurants along the Seine in Normandy. Beautiful reproductions of Monet's art compliment the recipes, along with photographs of the artist enjoying these dishes with his family, friends, and fellow artists. The recipes themselves, selected for their rustic appeal and use of only the freshest ingredients, range from simple galettes and hearty casseroles to fine souffle s, seafood dishes, and delicious tarts, cakes, and other pastries. A fitting tribute to the painter and his legendary aesthetic, this cookbook is the next best thing to sitting at Monet's table.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Read this cookbook, and next thing you know you'll be throwing a French garden party in your own backyard." -Edible Communities "This beautiful volume is illustrated with memorabilia, reproductions of the artist's work, and photographs by Francis Hammond that were styled by Garlone Bardel. Organized into four sections, the rustic recipes are inspired by Monet's culinary journals." --Vogue "Lushly-illustrated with the artist's artifacts, reproductions of his work, and photographs by Francis Hammond, the book includes 60 recipes based on descriptions in Monet's own cooking journals from his days in garden-rich Giverny. Readers can create modern takes on Monet's rustic fare." -ArtFixDaily "This beautiful book features Claude Monet's original recipes alongside stunning reproductions of his paintings, and moments from his life in Giverny. The recipes include a breadth of rustic and simple dishes, from comforting casseroles, sultry seafood dishes, and French tarts, pastries and cakes; an honour to Monet and his aesthetic, the Monet Cookbook is the next best thing to dining amongst him and company in his home." -Chefsouschef "If the title doesn't give it away, this food volume is a work of art in itself. Inspired by the impressionist masterpieces of Claude Monet and the dishes prepared in his Giverny, France, kitchen, this part coffee table book, part cookbook features 80 recipes as vibrant and full of life as the paintings that Monet used to paint." -Nylon
