Want to read more about Monet and
his celebrated table?
The cornflower blue tiled kitchen and the daffodil yellow dining room in Claude Monet's house at Giverny are kept today just as they were when his extensive family and many celebrated friends gathered around to enjoy his famous hospitality and convivial company.
By the time he settled in Giverny in 1883, Monet had become a successful artist and was able to indulge his passion for good food. Every meal was planned to perfection with fresh ingredients from his own kitchen garden or sourced from specialised local markets.
For Madame Monet and her household, entertaining was an all-consuming affair with a succession of increasingly illustrious guests. The artists Renoir, Dégas and Cézanne, as well as other notables, such as the writer Emile Zola and the eminent statesman Georges Clemenceau, were all frequent visitors to Monet's table.
Monet took a proprietorial interest in his kitchen and brought home ideas and recipes from the restaurants of Paris, as well as from his regular trips abroad. Many of these have been preserved and published for posterity in Monet's Table: The Cooking Journals of Claude Monet by Clare Joyes.
