Come sit at the Elysée Palace table

Table De L Elysee

If your taste buds were titillated watching the earthy dishes prepared by Catherine Frot for Jean d'Ormesson in « Les Saveurs du Palais » you will adore this book.

The chef at  the Élysée unveils the backstage of the French Presidents’ Palace  on  rue du Faubourg Saint Honoré.

A real beehive, from the silverware setters to those in charge of the linens as well as the wine steward, this busy little world goes all out to satisfy the exacting stomachs of visiting heads of State coming through Paris.

Amongst the recipes offered, we would like to mention the sirloin roast with truffles, concocted specially for Nelson Mandela, hosted by Mitterrand in 1990.

The plus: all the gals will be impressed when you set a table just like the one at l'Elysée, even Baroness Nadine de Rothschild would be bluffed!
