The World of Madeleine Castaing Launched and Set Sail



Last night friends, colleagues and family turned out to help me celebrate the publication of The World of Madeleine Castaing.   The Haughtons along with Bruce Addison, Maureen Footer and Charlotte Moss generously hosted the launch party which took place in the International Show's Glorious Food Cafe.

The hosts of the evening: Maureen Footer, Bruce Addison, and Charlotte Moss
Beth and her team from Potterton Books kept me on track...

...which I needed because it was too much fun talking to everyone...

...like the extremely stylish and renowned milliner Rod Keenan and connoisseur Philip Hewat-Jaboor
Pigs in blankets and miniature grilled cheese sandwiches from Glorious Food kept everyone happy as did the absolutely delicious and refreshing special cocktail of the evening, the Cointreau Blush, courtesy of Remy Cointreau.

  1. Put ice into a tall glass
  2. Add 30ml Cointreau
  3. Add 10ml Lime juice
  4. Top with 60ml Pink grapefruit
  5. Finish with 70ml Soda
  6. Stir well
  7. Add a lime wedge as a garnish

Thank you to everyone who came - it was thrilling meeting other kindred members of the cult of Castaing!  And a special thank you to Magda Grigorian and the International Show for a most splendid evening.

Your book arrived today. Felt so in the moment. Will have to read it in my study with its leopard carpet and MC colors. You look divine Madame EEE in your Castaing blue and most wonderful purple gloves. Finally after months of dusty research and alone with a keyboard, you get to celebrate with the cult of Castaing and feel the love.

ps How could I forget that glorious up swept do? So much more exotic than a wig with a chin strap!

Ah, the bay leaf headdress and those purple gloves!
That would have been worth the journey. I am told
by my special agent that it was a fabulous event.
And Amazon alerts me that the book is due at any
moment. All very exciting!
My very best wishes to the distinguished author.
