The Art of Cuisine

I ran across this book recently at some used book fair or store, and had no previous knowledge of its existence. So cool! Evidently Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec compiled recipes and then illustrated menus with his friend Maurice Joyant. I haven't tried any of the recipes yet, but the volume is worth having just to flip through and read the menus and look at the pictures.

Wow, this is a gem! I love toulouse-latrec. I actually wrote a paper on "At the Moulin Rouge."
