This is a fun, light read. Anyone who has spent any time in France will laugh in recognition at some of the behaviours described. However, that he continues to consume of foie gras, despite the blatant cruelty involved in its production, disappoints me. I won't be purchasing anything else he has written.

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.

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!

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.

Having been to Paris a few years ago and also an adventurous cook/baker I really enjoyed this book and look forward to making more of the recipes it contains. The hilarious descriptions of the various people were what we also experienced in our short time there so it was easy to visualize the rest. Tried the chocolate cake first but overcooked it a bit. Will try it again!

I noticed this book on the shelf of my local library a few weeks after returning from a 2-month stay in Paris - and after reading the first 2 pages I knew this was a book for me. It is funny and rather accurately describes the nuances and beauty of living in Paris. I am only sorry I didn't read the book before this last visit - I would have loved to have visited the stores and pastry shops and restaurants the author recommends. The recipes are first class - very detailed explanations, easy to follow. This book will accompany me on my next trip to Paris!

Funny AND yummy!! Really enjoyed this read... very enlightening and informative. David has a very casual writing style... he's a joy to read and relax with. I made the rib recipe and it was "to-die-for". Can't wait to try something else!

I bought this book on whim, and how lucky was I? A thoroughly engaging read which was laugh-out-loud funny. Each chapter felt more like a letter written to me by my friend who was adjusting to the Parisian façon d'être. Whether your transplanting yourself to Paris, are in the planning stages of a trip to the City of Lights, or just want a really fantastic read, "The Sweet Life in Paris" fits every proverbial bill. The recipes (!) are a fantastic bonus and have also served my own baking ambitions. Chapeau, M. Lebovitz !
