White Truffles in WinterLarge Print - 2011
French chef August Escoffier changed the way we eat, but was a man of contradictions: kind, yet imperious; food-obsessed yet rarely hungry. He was also torn between two women: the famous and reckless actress Sarah Berhnardt and hiw wife, the independent and sublime poet Delphine Daffis who refused to ever leave Monte Carlo. In the last year of Escoffier's life, he has returned to Delphine, who requests a dish in her name as he has honored Bernhardt, Queen Victoria, and others. How does one define the complexity of love on a single plate?
