              A consuming passion for all things French led Australian-born Jane Webster to a life between two countries and cultures. After their first trip to France, Webster, her husband, Peter, and their four children returned year after year, eventually buying a château in the tiny village of Bosgouet in Normandy. The first two years in Bosgouet were chronicled in the Australian best seller At My French Table: Food, Family and Joie de Vivre in a Corner of Normandy (Penguin Random House, 2008). Webster has since published another two French food and lifestyle memoirs: French Ties: Love, Life and Recipes (Penguin Random House, 2012) and French House Chic (Thames & Hudson, 2017). She operates her culinary and lifestyle experiences, the French table, from her magnificent château, gardens, and potager, which provide the perfect setting for receiving guests in the authentic French fashion, an art Webster has perfected.

              Over the past two decades, Australian-born photographer, author, and director Robyn Lea has worked around the globe. Her work has been published in Vogue, The New York Times, Marie Claire Italia, Architectural Digest, T Magazine, and Vogue Living, among others. Lea has an extensive exhibition history of more than ten solo shows of her photographic work, including one at the prestigious Vittoriano Museum in Rome in 2015, and multiple group exhibitions. Following the success of her best-selling book Dinner with Jackson Pollock: Recipes, Art & Nature (Assouline, 2015), Lea wrote and photographed Dinner with Georgia O’Keeffe: Recipes, Art & Landscape (Assouline, 2017). She also photographed Venetian Chic (Assouline, 2017) and was selected for the coveted role of photographer for the much-anticipated new coffee table book on the Hôtel Ritz Paris. Prior to this book, Lea photographed Jane Webster’s books French Ties: Love, Life and Recipes and French House Chic. Lea is currently working on a solo exhibition to be held in Italy, and writing and photographing several new book titles to be released over the next three years.
