Author information

Countess Cristina de Vogue is the daughter of an Italian diplomat and a Russian mother. When she married the heir to Vaux-le-Vicomte, she applied her talent as a hostess not only to family receptions, but also to the chateau's restaurant and gift shop. Thomas Dhellemmes' photographs were featured in The Seven Sins of Chocolate, which won the 2004 Gourmand Cookbook Award. Delphine de Montalier, food stylist, has written several recipe books and contributes to Elle a Table, Saveur, and Glamour. Veronique Villaret, a photo stylist for interiors magazines, also designs fabrics. Chateau Vaux-le-Vicomte was the setting for films including Sofia Coppola's Marie Antoinette and the James Bond Moonraker.

Review quote

"Even if I can't live like a countess, at least with these recipes, I can entertain like one." "ENTREE" ."..just turning the pages of this book feels like an indulgence." "Southern Accents" ."..a stunningly designed large-format book that showcases luscious cakes, tarts, and other sweets." "France Today" "Thomas Dhellemmes' lavish photographs show off the spectacular chateau, and the heavenly cakes, tarts, pies and souffles, presented on chairs and other antiques, make you want to eat the pages." "Edible Aspen" "The arresting photographs, both historic and current, make this a coffee-table book to be gazed at and admired. Most of the recipes have fewer than six ingredients and come together in minutes." "United Media"
