The Sweet Life In Paris: Delicious Adventures In The World’s Most Perplexing City

The Sweet Life In Paris: Delicious Adventures In The World’s Most Perplexing City

If you're the type that tends to over-romanticize the City of Lights, let David Lebovitz snap you back to reality. As an American expat who chose to move to France, he loves Paris—but he also has no qualms about exposing the ridiculous, baffling, and frustrating side of le France. (I still laugh when I think of his claim that he didn't REALLY feel like he belonged until the day he put on dress pants and a freshly ironed shirt to take out the trash). Lebovitz's niche is food writing, and while you'll hear plenty of stories of navigating the city, you'll also find food on nearly every page. Plan to be inspired to make (or at least eat) French favorites like warm goat cheese salad, chocolate mousse, and macarons. A perfect read for those who have lived in Paris, been to Paris, or just want a good laugh.

L’Appart: The Delights and Disasters of Making My Paris Home

L’Appart: The Delights and Disasters of Making My Paris Home

That subtitle! I love his recipes and especially his writing, which manages to simultaneously be interesting, informative, and laugh-out-loud funny. As Lebovitz fans have come to expect, this one combines stories about food and French culture mixed with a heady dose of philosophy-of-life.
