Overview

The Flowers of La Grenouille

To think of La Grenouille, one of New York City's finest restaurants, is to think of exquisite food, lush surroundings, and perhaps above all, gorgeous flowers. Ever since its doors opened in 1962, La Grenouille has been known for its peerless bouquets, and in The Flowers of La Grenouille the mystery and the history behind these beautiful flowers are revealed.

Now Charles Masson, proprietor of La Grenouille for eighteen years, affectionately shares the intimate lessons in flower care and aesthetics he learned from his father. In simple language, Charles offers tangible advice for the layman, explaining how to make cut flowers last longer, how to revive a drooping rose, and how to create sensational bouquets, both large and small. He reveals how to allow the flowers to dictate the look of the bouquet, how to pick a suitable container, and how to "knit" stems so that a bouquet holds its shape without artificial support.

Charles's advice is illustrated with charming drawings and more than 50 lush full-color photographs that show off the world-famous flowers in all their glory. Color charts, lists detailing the conditioning tips and materials needed for each flower, and other pithy information are complemented by personal anecdotes about the history of the restaurant and the philosophy behind his father's passion for all things beautiful.

The Flowers of La Grenouille is a fact-filled, practical flower guide and an enchanting tribute to the most renowned floral arrangements in the world.

Like many restaurants, La Grenouille has a well-earned reputation for excellent cuisine and superior service. But the New York restaurant has something more: a tradition of gracing its tables and dining rooms with extraordinary bouquets. Now the son of the founder serves up personal anecdotes, along with full-color photographs.
