Dinner Diaries follows in the spirit of Assouline’s popular Proust Questionnaire, Fashion Questionnaire, and Wine Questionnaire, using the format of Proust’s handy interview helper, here written by Daniel Cappello, to ask everything about dinner parties, from preferred seating arrangements to the best conversation topics.
Featuring handwritten answers from experienced hosts such as fashion staple and philanthropist Allison Aston, chef Alex Hitz, and businesswoman Eva Jeanbart-Lorenzotti, in addition to blank questionnaires in the back to share with friends.
Dinner Diaries will be illustrated with ephemera from these hosts—seating charts, menus, guest lists, place cards—as well as archival pieces from the most glamorous dinner parties of yesteryear. The dinner party has evolved in the last few years, and here’s a way to keep up with the times!
