Description: Invite your friends to a Nobel Banquet in your own home. This book contains a selection of the Nobel menus from 1901 to the present day. The recipes are modern and serve 6 people. Be inspired by the ideas in the contemporary table settings as you follow the original menus on a culinary journey through the century. Fine food should be accompanied by fine drink -- experts suggest wines to complement our modern menus.
Read about Alfred Nobel and his life, about the detailed preparations involved in a Nobel banquet, about the great day itself, the 10th December, and then serve up interesting anecdotes to your guests! This book, however, is mostly about food preparation. Step by step instructions ensure that even those who do not consider themselves expert cooks can succeed. Or would you rather be invited to a Nobel dinner yourself? In that case, give the book to someone -- it would make a splendid present.
