From The New York Times:

“I know lots of recipes, and, who knows, one day I might need something to fall back on. We could do a Dior ham or a Dior roast beef, perhaps?”

This volume “was a collection of all the recipes that Dior, the epicure, most loved…The book makes a significant connection between Dior's love of la cuisine and his passion for la couture. The nobility of the raw materials, the dexterity of the hand, the all-consuming desire of the creator and the consumer—for Dior, they were one and the same, whether it was fashion or food that was engaging him" (New York Times).
