This holiday season, add une touche française to your table! Start off with a glass of Champagne and our feature on female winegrowers and entrepreneurs who are popping the “fizzy ceiling” at Taittinger, Krug, and Perrier-Jouët. For the next course, turn to our selection of beautiful coffee-table books about la France and our article on foie gras’s last Christmas. The French delicacy is set to become illegal in New York City in November 2022. To round off your dinner, read about Boniface de Castellane, the spendthrift French count who ruined the daughter of American railroad baron Jay Gould, and impress your guests with Sébastien Gaudard’s chestnut and pear Yule log. We teamed up with the acclaimed Parisian pâtissier to give you his signature recipe! Bon appétit!
