How They Entertain: At Home with the Tastemakers

Pierre Sauvage takes readers on a visual and culinary journey through the world’s most stylish gatherings.

Following the international triumph of Be My Guest, Sauvage delves deeper into the realms of imaginative entertainment with twenty vibrant global tastemakers. Open the doors to Rebecca de Ravenel’s breezy Portuguese sanctuary in Estoril, step into Remy Renzullo’s refined London abode, and wander through Isabelle de Borchgrave’s inspired artist’s studio in Belgium. Each locale springs to life with lush photography of lavish homes, innovative tablescapes, and imaginative flower arrangements.

Beyond the visual feast, this book serves up delectable recipes and menus tailored for every occasion—from a casual poolside picnic to a serene holiday candlelight dinner to an upscale urban meal. This tome is more than a book; it’s a blueprint for hosting, showcasing how creativity and culture converge at the dining table.

Celebrating the art of exquisite gatherings, this eclectic collection of tables and recipes is also a celebration of the philosophy behind entertaining. It’s a reflection on how thoughtfulness and creativity in hospitality can lead to unforgettable moments and lasting impressions. Welcome Back is like a muse for crafting memorable experiences, where every meal becomes a momentous occasion.
