After The Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc, which recounted the history of this little paradise bordered by pine trees, Cuisine & Cravings of the Stars offers recipes that satisfy deep desires, that are stripped of everything but the essence of people who finally feel happy and at home, somehow, thanks to the flavors they find on their plates.
To be a chef at the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc is no easy task. The sky, the sea, and the land - not to mention the world's most elite patrons - are always there to judge you. And so, the cuisine at the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc is ambitious. It whispers excellence; it breathes with agility and talent. It satisfies, pleases, nourishes, gratifies, impresses.
In this magnificently illustrated cookbook, recipes from the hotel's celebrated grill, restaurant, and cabanas are presented in a befitting, luxurious format. Here are the favorite dishes of movie stars and moguls, each accompanied by a full-page photograph.
