Description: This jewel of a cookbook combines recipes and exquisite color photographs that celebrate one of New York's great treasures, the Cafe des Artistes restaurant.
Located in a historic building on a historic block, West Sixty-seventh Street, in New York City, the Cafe des Artistes has been a gathering spot for artists, musicians, writers, and theater people since its beginning in the early 1900s. Although Paul Newman, Rudolph Nureyev, Zubin Mehta, and Beverly Sills have long since replaced Noel Coward, Rudolf Valentino, Isadora Duncan, and Alexander Woollcott, the years have not diminished the Cafe's sparkling glamour. Under the direction of noted food expert George Lang, the Cafe des Artistes is one of New York's most sophisticated and popular restaurants.
The Cafe des Artistes Cookbook presents recipes for such renowned and original specialties as Chef Andre's Walnut Pate, Seafood Gazpacho -- Sixty-seventh Street Style, Lamb and Duck Cassoulet with Lentils, Bay Scallops Sauteed with Shallots and Walnuts, and the Ilona Torte, which may be the world's richest chocolate dessert, and certainly one of its most memorable.
With photographs that capture the romantic appeal of the restaurant and its Howard Chandler Christy murals, The Cafe des Artistes Cookbook is an altogether irresistible book that evokes the luxury and pleasure of dining at the famed restaurant.
