English translation of original French edition, "Les Carnets de Cuisine de Monet". The recipes collected in his notebooks include dishes Monet had encountered in his travels or had come across in the restaurants they frequented in Paris, as well as recipes from friends, such as Cezanne's bouillabaisse and Millet's petits pains. For this book the author, Claire Joyes, has spent years selecting the Monet's favourite recipes and writing wonderfully evocative introductory text. Illustrated with reproductions of Monet's paintings, specially commissioned colour photographs of Giverny, selected shots of finished dishes and facsimile pages from the notebooks themselves, it provides a unique insight into the private life of the world's greatest Impressionist painter.
