From Potato Pie to Strawberry Mousse, French impressionist Claude Monet “appreciated simple dishes made of fresh ingredients and prepared according to very basic yet authentic principles,” writes Florence Gentner, a museum consultant and author who has just published The Monet Cookbook: Recipes From Giverny.

Lushly-illustrated with the artist's artifacts, reproductions of his work, and photographs by Francis Hammond, the book includes 60 recipes based on descriptions in Monet’s own cooking journals from his days in garden-rich Giverny. Readers can create modern takes on Monet's rustic fare.

The Monet Cookbook: Recipes From Giverny, by Florence Gentner, with photographs by Francis Hammond (Prestel), $35, is now available.
