An illustrated journal to record celebrations, with paintings by the legendary chef and artist Jacques Pépin
For the last fifty years, Jacques Pépin has created lushly hand-illustrated journals to keep track what he cooked for friends, birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, and holidays. This book collects Pépin’s favorite paintings so you can commemorate your own dinners: the dishes you serve, the wines that accompany them, and even the music you play. Choose from the more than 75 charmingly designed borders and use it to frame your menu. In the space on the opposite page, your guests can sign their names and write little notes. With an introduction by Pépin, this “dinner diary” is both a practical reminder of what dishes were served to which guests and an invaluable archive of memories.
