About This Book

Make your celebration the most fabulous fete of the season with recipes and entertaining tips from Veuve Clicquot, the champagne of celebrations. The most complex of wines, the pop of a Champagne cork immediately symbolizes celebration and joy. Divided into four chapters-Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter-The Seasons of Veuve Clicquot highlights centuries-old traditions and expertise of champagne making while chronicling events and recipes for each season’s celebrations. This book takes you from the Champagne vineyards in Reims to the chic social events of the world: polo tournaments in New York, Carnival in Rio de Janeiro, the ski slopes in Australia, and a vintage car race in the English countryside.
From colorful cocktails for spring, to poolside appetizers in summer, the harvest picnic for early fall, and the ultimate apres-ski party in the winter, The Seasons of Veuve Clicquot has numerous full menus customized by the world’s leading chefs to make any event the perfect fete. Prestigious contributors make it a must-have cookbook for socialites and foodies alike. Intermixed with the recipes are beautiful new and vintage photographs inspired by the celebrations, making this cookbook also a gorgeous coffee-table book.

  • "This book reflects the modern Clicquot lifestyle, from the simple act of gathering the grapes to a profile of young cellar master Dominique Demarville. The style of the house is reflected in a series of photos from the horse- and car-racing world, yachting, polo and lush garden parties. Soothe winter nights with recipes from Chez l’Ami Louis in Paris. Comfort yourself with a bit of foie gras, easy duck confit, roast chicken or a stack of pommes frites. For summer, buffets of small plates and elegant raspberry macaroons are inspirational. The same may be said of a selection of poolside recipes created by Damien Montecer, executive chef at Hotel Santa Teresa in Rio De Janeiro. These dishes — and their presentation — will fit right in at any elegant party..." ~Palm Beach Daily News
