Poet, novelist, painter, artist, playwright, designer, filmmaker,critic: all suitable ways to describe Jean Cocteau, yet all insufficient to truly honour his genius. Words, no matter how accurate, can only do so much. Which is why we have created this menu. To not only celebrate his achievements, but the qualities of the man himself: his loves, his whims, his passions. Among them, of course, his joy at sharing a drink with his dearest friends. Great writer of drama that he was, he also found time to pen, with the help of chef Raymond Olivier, his own culinary collection, Recettes pour un ami. So Jean, wherever you are, if you can read this we hope you accept this humble cocktail menu as its belated companion.
