Product Description

Review

"David Lebovitz is a rare specimen: both a terrific storyteller and a brilliant, uncompromising recipe writer. His lighthearted, almost satirical style is combined with far-reaching knowledge of food and its context. I'd follow him blindfolded on this journey to the City of Light."
-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.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I bought this book on spec after Amazon recommended it following another French cookbook purchase. All I can say is that I am delighted! It is a joy of a book, both as a collection of recipes as well as a reflection of living, cooking and eating in Paris today. It is very easy and enjoyable to read. Just as importantly (or more importantly to some, maybe) the recipes are excellently described, well illustrated and the end result has been a great success for me each time - I am an OK home cook with not much time. David has worked as a professional chef in California for Chez Panisse - the inspiration for so many, including Sally Clarke of Clarke's Restaurant, in London. But you don't need to be a professional chef at all enjoy it. In many ways his book reminds me of Nigel Slater's books - written with great passion and insight by somebody who delights in food and wants to inspire the reader to do the same. The book is a very personal account and I found immediately that I liked David's voice; his keen observations on things French and his sense of humour permeate the whole. I have now started reading his blog - equally delightful - and have ordered his other cookbooks. He is a real find and I wish I had known about him sooner.

This book delivers on two main factors; one its full of great stories and funny situations about David's life in Paris and two, great recipes! I purchased this book off the back of reading 'My sweet life in Paris' (which I highly recommend) and I was not disappointed. The recipes are varied and offer a selection of options to suit different tastes, you don't have to be a sucker for French food to enjoy this book.... I'd recommend it for its recipes but I really enjoy the stories that are laced throughout the book. They are witty, funny and honest.

I hadn't heard of this writer or his blog, but found this book interesting nonetheless. It's a personal account of one man's love affair with Paris, albeit with a few digs at what Parisians actually eat (some readers might find that this, coming from an American, seems rather odd).

Beautifully illustrated, and even if you don't intend to follow any of the recipes (I have bookmarked a few), it conjures up the tastes, smells and sights of Paris.

Reviewed in exchange for a preview Kindle copy.
