Product Description

Review

“David Lebovitz is the greatest thing to happen to dessert since the spoon, but this time he shows that beyond his artful nose and flawless taste, he also has a keen reporter’s eye. If Paris intrigues, excites, or merely interests you, read this book.” —Mort Rosenblum, author of The Secret Life of the Seine, A Goose in Toulouse, Olives, and Chocolate: A Bittersweet Story of Dark and Light

“Cooks aren’t usually such good writers—so funny, skeptical, and observant. He’s a wonderful one. Also, I’m a fervent fan of his ice-cream book, so I can’t wait to cook my way through his other recipes.”
—Diane Johnson, author of Le Divorce

About the Author

He's the author of five highly regarded books on desserts, and most recently the cookbook, My Paris Kitchen and has written for many major food magazines, sharing his well-tested recipes written with a soupçon of humor. His popular, award-winning blog, www.davidlebovitz.com, entertains readers from around the world with sweet and savory recipes as he tries to unravel the complexities of living in Paris.

Great read for Paris lovers. Written with a lot of humour and I am told by a Paris addict that it portrays life in Paris as it really is. Lots of great recipes as well that I can't wait to try. David Lebovitz is a witty and intelligent writer and has scored another hit.

Funny stories (and so true) about parisians. The recipes are nice, easy and accessible for everyday cooks, not complicated. The author even searched for replacements ingredients when some special french ones are not available in North America.

David Lebovitz is hilarious and has a writing style that will make you laugh out loud. His accounts of the Parisian lifestyle will tickle the funny bone of anyone who has visited. The recipes are sprinkled throughout the book and are wonderful and very easy to make.

The title says it all. The author regales us with his (sometimes hilarious) stories of the idiosyncrasies of an American living in Paris. The descriptions of the city are rich - they make you want to go and check out the venues described for yourself. The fabulous recipes at the end of each section are a wonderful bonus. You have to read this book!

This was a thoroughly entertaining book. Much of it laugh-out-loud funny. The struggle of the author to acclimate to his new life in France is endearing, and you admire his resolve.
The recipes at the end of each chapter are a nice little treat and sound fantastic. I can't wait to try them!

As a travellers to Paris, I always wondered about a few things. David has made those Parisian idiocyncrasies very clear.
I laughed a lot and now have a greater understanding of parisians.
