In all latitudes, friend of the arts, delights gourmets, accomplice musicians, allies of the world, Champagne reveals joy, lightness, enthusiasm, euphoria, tenderness, excellence, inspiration ...
The author invites us to a real fireworks, an exceptional party.
She succeeds in the prowess of this journey in time alongside those who embellish the world (Luciano Pavarotti, Picasso or Ferran AdriÌÊ), those who direct it (from Louis XV to Bill Clinton, through Gorbachev, Mitterrand, Kennedy, George V ...) and those who cheer him up or make him progress.
Thirty-five stories drawn from the great periods of world history, thirty-five exceptional menus, whose food and wine pairings are revisited on the sole theme of Champagne. Champagne is always and constantly different because there are no two identical. Bernadette O'Shea presents more than two hundred from thirty houses, easily accessible nowadays, but also some rare emblematic vintages that she had the privilege of tasting.
The originality of this book is of course the eclectic suggestions of its author, but also to the share of dreams it delivers, a certain art of living and no doubt the intelligence of pleasure. A book to put in the hands of any good epicurean.

Coffee, tea, and chocolate were all the rage in Enlightenment Europe. These fashionable beverages profoundly shaped modes of sociability and patterns of consumption, yet none of the plants required for their preparation was native to the continent: coffee was imported from the Levant, tea from Asia, and chocolate from Mesoamerica. Their introduction to 17th-century Europe revolutionized drinking habits and social customs. It also spurred an insatiable demand for specialized vessels such as hot beverage services and tea canisters, coffee cups and chocolate pots. This beautiful book demonstrates how the paraphernalia associated with coffee, tea, and chocolate can eloquently evoke the culture of these new beverages and the material pleasures that surrounded them. Contributors address such topics as the politics of coffee consumption in 18th-century Germany; 18th-century visual satires on the European consumption of tea, coffee, and chocolate; and the design history of coffee pots in the United States between the colonial period and the present.
The British capital has become an unlikely hotbed for a rapidly evolving coffee scene, absorbing diverse influences from its increasingly diverse citizenry. Home to deeply entrenched tea culture, the development of the city mirrors the development of its booming coffee scene. As the younger generation welcomes coffee traditions from Brooklyn, Melbourne, Turkey, and more, London, home of the royal family, iconic red phone booths, and double-decker buses, grapples with its identity. In this issue, we explore how tea-crazy London went mad for coffee and how its integration of international coffee-savvy experts is changing as Brexit looms. Featuring potters, flat white-pouring Aussies, refugees, and expats, Volume 8 holds a magnifying glass to London, England.
