Additional Details

Description: Dining With Proust invites you into this great novelist's sublime fin-de-siecle world, where you'll feast on wine, sumptuous meals, and, of course, madeleines. The reader enters a gallery of vintage photographs, master paintings, excerpts from his masterpiece In Search of Lost Time, and recipes from the novel revised for the modern kitchen. 

We follow Proust's path, from his childhood in Combray to the Swanns' in Paris, through Wednesday suppers with Madame Verdurin to the high society of the Reveillon and Guermanres estates, and finally to the seacoast. Eat, drink, and celebrate the good life with the poets and artists of the day, among them Baudelaire, Valery, and Monet. 

Like its popular predecessor Monet's Table, Dining with Proust is a virtuoso blend of food, literature, art, and history. With sixty delicious, easy-to-follow recipes, and magnificent illustrations, here is a feast for the palate as well as the spirit.
