-Yotam Ottolenghi, coauthor of Jerusalem "David Lebovitz is a chef who can write better than most food writers, a writer who can hold his own in any restaurant kitchen in the world, and, most of all, a guy who simply rejoices in food and cooking. This may be his most personal cookbook, describing all facets of his cooking life in Paris, with great stories, information, and recipes. I need two copies of this book: one for the kitchen and another by my reading chair."
-Michael Ruhlman, author of Ruhlman's Twenty "Opening this beautiful book is like opening the door to David's Paris. Of course, you get great recipes, but you also get to wander the world's most delicious city with a friend who knows it well and is excited to share it with you. A treat for those of us who love French home cooking, Paris, and David's take on it all."
-Dorie Greenspan, author of Around My French Table
"David Lebovitz is the ultimate American in Paris and this book is the ultimate insight into his beautiful and delicious world. I am beyond jealous!"
-Suzanne Goin, author of The A.O.C. Cookbook In My Paris Kitchen, Lebovitz weaves together inviting and insightful tales about his adopted city with a collection of smart, fun recipes. Some of these are total French classics--think oeufs mayo and green lentil salad--while others give a nod to the ethnic diversity in the city. In a nod to his pastry background, Lebovitz includes a substantial dessert section, but it's clear from the breadth of the book that his Paris kitchen is filled with so much more than sweets. Here is a cookbook to take to a comfy chair and read cover to cover.
