Description: Hot Springs, Virginia is an extraordinary place -- disarmingly rural, it is also the setting of one of America's great resorts. Like the legendary French chateaux, The Homestead holds dominion over the striking Warm Springs Valley. Imposing in size, its ambience, dedication to service, and excellent cuisine evoke memories of luxurious North Atlantic ocean liners. Yet this is the present, and Swiss-born Executive Chef Albert Schnarwyler is the driving force in a kitchen where the spirits of Careme, Escoffier, and Point inspire a talented brigade.
Here, for the first time, is a selection from the chef's French-accented international recipe box designed for the home kitchen. Thorough and clear instructions are garnished with historical and anecdotal introductions.
Nearly three hundred color photographs accompany the recipes. Some show elegant presentations from The Homestead kitchens while others will take you on a tour of the hotel and its environs. You will see the kitchen working round the clock, stockpots simmering, massive brick ovens baking, and rotisseries roasting to serve some of the finest food in the United States.
