This sumptuous blend of recipes with cultural history is a dinner invitation you won't want to pass up. Chances are you weren't invited to the wedding of Grace Kelley and Prince Ranier, or to Truman Capote's famous "Black and White" ball at the Plaza Hotel. But now you can experience those and other legendary celebrations in your own home, as well as learn about the historic and cultural moments they embodied. This beautifully designed book brings together twenty menus--both authentic and imagined--along with instructions for preparing each dish and recreating the dinners in your home. Each event is represented in multi-page spreads that feature contemporary photographs to help you recreate the meals in your kitchen, while archival images and entertaining essays provide important historical context. You may not live on the Cote d'Azur like Coco Chanel, but why not pretend with the perfect salade niçoise? Join the con artist Henry Gerguson and serve up some fabulous mid-century Noodles Romanoff. Feeling artistic? Serve your guests some roast chicken and borscht, the way Jackson Pollock and Lee Krasner did, with vegetables fresh from their Long Island garden. From JFK's triumphant visit to Berlin to the White House reception for the Apollo 11 crew; from a Bloomsbury high tea to dinner with the famously private Audrey Hepburn, this fun and sophisticated mixture of culture and food will reside as happily on your coffee table as it will on your cookbook shelf.

A window onto the lives of the Romantic poets through the re-creation of one legendary night in 1817. The author of the highly acclaimed Posthumous Keats, praised as “full of . . . those fleeting moments we call genius” (Washington Post), now provides a window into the lives of Keats and his contemporaries in this brilliant new work. On December 28, 1817, the painter Benjamin Robert Haydon hosted what he referred to in his diaries and autobiography as the “immortal dinner.” He wanted to introduce his young friend John Keats to the great William Wordsworth and to celebrate with his friends his most important historical painting thus far, “Christ’s Entry into Jerusalem,” in which Keats, Wordsworth, and Charles Lamb (also a guest at the party) appeared. After thoughtful and entertaining discussions of poetry and art and their relation to Enlightenment science, the party evolved into a lively, raucous evening. This legendary event would prove to be a highlight in the lives of these immortals. A beautiful and profound work of extraordinary brilliance, The Immortal Evening regards the dinner as a lens through which to understand the lives and work of these legendary artists and to contemplate the immortality of genius. Winner of the Truman Capote Award for Literary Criticism

This is not a cookbook per se, but a memoir written for my children and grandchildren, recording what they have eaten under my roof, as well as the whys and wherefores that colored their existence before they were old enough to control their own destinies. It covers what I learned from a lot of people who influenced me, starting with my father, and consequently had a bearing on everyone I have cared for and influenced since. This has been something like a daisy chain; you help me and I’ll help somebody else, because there’s no way to repay you. It has been complied from scraps written down through the years because I did not want to forget. What has been joyous or painful, or strange or commonplace, seems to be significant today only because it was unusual in what turned out to be the last half of a millennium. It has been my lot to have been interested in a great many things: art, food, architecture, history, plants, travel, men, and my family. I’ve had ups and downs, survived and been a personal witness to the ability of the human spirit to overcome all sorts of unexpected blows. This book is for people who love to read about cooking, who know a little bit about it, and truly enjoy it as an indoor sport. It’s for people like my children and their spouses, who cook together, not always looking for the shortcuts, but always looking for the best. As Virginia Woolf so succinctly put it, “One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.” I have led a wonderful life, enjoyed the best of this continent and Europe, never having been a star, a celebrity or wealthy, but claim only to have been a keen observer in a very interesting and unusual period in history. I’ve learned what is truly important in life, what is transitory, and I’ve tried to convey these discoveries to make other’s lives a little more productive and satisfying. The secret, the essence of the good life, in a nutshell, is productivity, and much satisfaction lies in serving one’s family. Children, especially the most promising, must be nurtured as only a mother can. Many mothers don’t see how important their roles are, and perhaps by talking about food enthusiastically, even romantically, I can get them to look on one aspect of housekeeping with new eyes, and find satisfaction where there was once drudgery. Enjoy.

This Meal planner journal will help you to acheive those goals: 5 REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD PLAN YOUR MEALS 1. Improve your nutrition p>By planning in advance, you can aim to have nutritionally well-balanced meals throughout the week. For example, you can make sure each of your dinners have the requisite veggies, protein, and grains. Planning your meals ultimately allows you to take control of your own personal nutrition needs. Whether you have to stick to a lower sodium diet or want only to eat whole grains and veggies, you can plan for it! 2. Make healthier choices If you have to come up with something to eat last minute, you'll find yourself probably going out for dinner instead. As a result, you are most likely to end up exceeding your daily calorie and sodium intake! Even just stopping at the grocery store to pick up a last minute dinner may lead to poor choices. When you shop hungry, you are more likely to throw junk food into your cart. 3. Eat high quality foods Homemade meals are almost always more nutrient-dense and filled with less calories, salt, and fat than takeout or quick ready-made options at your grocery store. Choosing your own recipes and ingredients for the week allows you to make important food choices, such as buying local meats or organic produce. 4. Save money Having a meal plan prevents you from throwing out ingredients you forgot you had in the fridge. You can create meal plans that specifically allow you to use up whatever you have in your cupboards. You can also start fresh by creating grocery lists based off your meal plans. This way you'll go to the grocery store with purpose rather than on the whim and you won't come out with a dozen of random unhealthy food items, most of which you won't eat. In addition, your meal plan will save you money by preventing you from ordering costly last minute takeouts. 5. Save time Your set grocery lists will prevent you from wandering around the grocery store aimlessly and your meal plans will save you from having to think about what to eat every day. If you find yourself quite busy during the workweek, take some time out of the weekend to prepare most of your meals. Oats and frozen berries with yogurt in mason jars serve as great breakfasts for on-the-go. Prepared quinoa or pasta salads with mixed veggies and beans can serve as a work lunch for multiple days. Cook one or two larger dinners on the weekend so you'll have something for when you arrive home exhausted and don't feel like cooking. Pre-portion and split appropriate servings for your family between the fridge and freezer for easy dinners. Soups, chilli, meatballs and marinated chicken breasts are all great for freezing. Re-heat while you prepare a quick salad or veggie slices, and you'll have a delicious homemade meal! It's extremely simple to start: simply write down your meal plans on this notebook.

The late-nineteenth century in Europe was a period of profound political, social, and technological change. One result of these changes was the rise in France of an upper-bourgeois bohemian class. Many of its members stimulated interest in unique forms of artistic expression such as illustrated books. On account of their influence, an atmosphere of intense bibliophilic activity came to define French culture at the turn of the century. The New Bibliopolis explores the role of amateurs in promoting the book arts in France during this period. Drawing on extensive original research, Willa Z. Silverman looks at the ways in which book collectors supported print culture. She shows how, through the admiration demonstrated by collectors for this medium, print came to be a crucial part of popular conceptions of aesthetics. As collectors, publishers, authors, designers, and directors of bibliophile societies, reviews, and small presses, these book lovers became passionate and prolific interlocutors of the printed word in a uniquely artistic epoch. Silverman analyzes subjects as diverse as the relationship between book collecting and aesthetic and cultural currents such as Symbolism; the gendered nature of book collecting; the increased collaboration between authors and illustrators; and the marketing of fine books at international exhibits. The New Bibliopolis is an important contribution to the study of book history, French sociocultural history, and fine and decorative arts.
