Monet’s Palate – Paris

Monet’s Palate is a celebration of all things Monet: his garden, his cuisine, and his art. What started as a documentary film, Monet’s Palate: A Gastronomic View from the Gardens of Giverny, has become a broader program devoted to bringing Monet’s world to a broader audience. Filmmaker and program founder Aileen Boardman is inspiring people to immerse themselves in Monet’s lifestyle. “We can’t all own a Monet,” says Boardman, “but through the vehicle of Monet’s Palate, we can experience a little bit of respite.”

At Giverny, Monet created an oasis out of which he ventured to explore the world with specific tasks in mind—like seeking out the best place to have an apple tart. Monet’s Palate is an experience Boardman describes as “the perfect blend of art and good tastes.”

Boardman is encouraging art lovers and foodies alike to follow in the footsteps of Monet and explore the “palate to palette connection.”
