Le Grand Vefour: Guy Martin

Author: Guy Martin, Michel Langot Format: Hardback Release Date: 28/09/2016

Le Grand Vefour is one of the most famous and oldest gourmet restaurants in Paris. It is a veritable jewel of the 18th century art decoratif , located in the heart of Paris, next to the Gardens of the Palais Royal. Le Grand Vefour has been the finest gourmet rendezvous of Parisian political, artistic and literary society for more than two hundred years. This book retraces the history of the Grand Vefour, founded in 1784, with anecdotes and texts about the many celebrities who have eaten there. Guy Martin shares about fifty of the restaurant's signature recipes and talks about the restaurant's service and atmosphere. The text is accompanied by magnificent four-colour photographs that capture the atmosphere, gilding, reflections in the age-old mirrors and of course the delicious food.
