I have added several of the reviewed or gifted interior design books to my recipe book collection, and Legendary Dinners by Anne Petersen will proudly join them. From JFK, Coco Chanel, the Apollo 11 Crew, Truman Capote, to Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn, the twenty dinners not only share beautiful images, but the recipes themselves. 

The tablescapes are stunning, and the food extraordinary. Those invited to these dinners include celebrities, politicians, businessmen, and famous wives; the Who's Who in the world. A celebration of history, if you will, and a must have for your collection.

Below are several images from this wonderful book.  ENJOY!

Anne Peterson studied journalism in Munich and Paris and is now editor-in-chief of Salon, a leading German designer and lifestyle magazine. She lives in Hamburg with her husband and four children.
