The Monet Cookbook

The Monet Cookbook: Recipes from Giverny (by Florence Gentner, photography by Francis Hammond) tells the culinary story of Monet’s life. From his middle-class family in Giverny, to the garden parties with a guest list that included Renoir and Alexandre Dumas, a fresh, authentic meal was the cornerstone of any good day.

Gentner describes the scene: “Monet made sure that he ate well and that he could offer his guests the very best from his kitchen garden. He amassed a talented team of people, including meticulous cooks and diligent gardeners. When Monet was satisfied with his work and his company, he displayed a happiness that was infectious.”
