Gourmet's food editors travel to Paris to taste, learn, and be inspired to create recipes for this edition's Cuisines of the World section. But first they offer three menus once served in the Parisian homes of expatriates Picasso, Brancusi, and Man Ray during the 1900s. The focus then shifts to Paris at the turn of the twenty-first century, with a cutting-edge Gourmet menu and dozens of new recipes. The Menu Collection offers several additional choices: an Intimate Valentine's Day Dinner, a Springtime Dinner in County Cork, and an Open-House Vegetarian Feast, among others. This newest collection features 32 menus, more than 350 recipes, and 100 page of full-color photographs.
