A Fabulous Read,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Sweet Life in Paris: Delicious Adventures in the World's Most Glorious--And Perplexing--City (Hardcover)
This is a bit different from David's previous books (of which I have all), in that it's done in short stories followed by recipes. I love Paris and wouldn't have been without this one, David's observations on his life as both an American and Pastry Chef in Paris had me laughing out loud on more than one occasion. Some of it I totally associated with, as Paris is one of my very favourite cities; but the bits I didn't were still a very fabulous read. This is the perfect holiday reading book for a food lover, but it's also much more - there are still plenty of recipes to keep this book current long after it's initial reading - I've marked a good number to try, sweet and savoury alike. The dulce de leche brownies are really awesome and thoroughly recommended!
