In the Cote d’Antibes, the benevolent azure radiance above and the blue sea rippling deep below seem to issue a challenge to all who stand in their presence: live up to us. The chef at the Hôtel du Cap-Eden-Roc knows this challenge well. As a permanent jury, the sky, the sea, and the earth sit in judgment of the daily feasts he prepares. And so he conjures up a cuisine that whispers its excellence while exuding agility andand genius.
The spirit of the food at the Hôtel du Cap-Eden-Roc represents a certain squaring of the circle—achieving the nigh impossible goal to satisfy, to delight, to nourish, to fill, to astonish, and to soothe. This is why the menus seem to fluctuate, downshift, and take back roads to their destinations.
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.
