Chapeau David, 29 novembre 2009
I'm an American living in France since 1983, in the beautiful seaside resort town of Biarritz.
I love to cook and recently have been concentrating on desserts. I was planning a 'girlfriend' trip up to Paris and came across 'The Sweet Life in Paris' just before my trip. David Lebovitz has really hit it on the head with his running commentary of what it's like to be an American living in France. Everything that he writes about the French I have experienced first hand. This stuff is too funny to make up! I was laughing out loud while turning the pages. I'm looking forward to trying his recipes that are scattered throughout the book. I took advantage of some of the insider's tips while in Paris and visited some of his favorite haunts like, G. Detou (pronounced j'ai de tous) to pick up ingredients (chocolate chips, pistachio flour) and also the fascinating shop, Le Vert d'Absinthe, at 11 rue d'Ormesson where I purchased some Duplais Absinthe to try his Absinthe Cake recipe on page 74. I'm sure I'll enjoy the recipes in the book but even if there weren't any recipes this book could easily stand alone just with the narrative on French life as seen through American eyes. This book would be a great gift to any expats you know living in France or anyone planning a trip to France.
