Take a culinary journey in Monet’s footsteps with this book featuring recipes and photographs from his bucolic Normandy home—forward by Meryl Streep.
Monet's Palate Cookbook brings to life Claude Monet's beloved kitchen garden at his exquisite home in Giverny, France. With sixty recipes drawn from Giverny’s farm-to-table tradition and the artist’s own cooking journals, the book explores Monet’s passion for gardening and includes detailed information about the herbs and vegetables he grew.
On his two-acre vegetable garden, Monet grew zucchini, cherry tomatoes, radishes, pearl onions, brussels sprouts, asparagus, rosemary and mint. A few of the recipes are of French origin, such as the famous Normandy apple tart. Others are from locations abroad where he traveled, such as the Savoy Hotel in London where Monet acquired their recipe for Yorkshire pudding.
Capturing Monet's lifestyle, Monet’s Palate Cookbook includes beautiful photographs by Steven Rothfeld, descriptions of the house interiors and gardens, French entertaining tips, and more.
