Description
 
Carolin C. Young (au). “Eating is biological. Dining is everything beyond that. It’s what makes us human.” Here is a celebration of this philosophy, where the universal impulse to dine elegantly is on exquisite display. The book travels through 10 centuries of European history to tell the stories of 12 legendary dinner parties. Includes: the lofty ritual of Catholic feast days at Cluny Abbey to the pleasurable voyeurism of Casanova’s soupers intimes, seduction dinners, to the food antics of the 20th-century Surrealists. You will meet some of Europe’s most fascinating personalities, sample the food & the music, the wardrobe & etiquette that marked such infamous occasions as Titian’s nature-worshipping picnics, & Talleyrand’s foreign-affairs soirees. Lavishly illustrated.
