Thomas Dhellemmes’ photographs were featured in The Seven Sins of Chocolate, which won the 2004 Gourmand Cookbook Award. Delphine de Montalier, food stylist, has written several recipe books and contributes to Elle à Table, Saveur, and Glamour. Véronique Villaret, a photo stylist for interiors magazines, also designs fabrics.
