Review

Do not read this book on an empty stomach...After a couple of chapters, I was ready to throw the book aside and hop a jet to either city just to get my hands on some of the food she described. --Working Title

Traveling foodies of the world, rejoice--Thomas provides the sweet scoop on Paris and New York in this mouth-watering memoir. While an associate creative director at ad agency Ogilvy & Mather, Thomas was offered a position as copywriter on the Louis Vuitton account in Paris. So she left her life in New York--where an insatiable sweet tooth had made her a veritable expert on the city's bakeries and chocolatiers--to live in the foodie mecca of the Second Arrondissement and work in a gorgeous building on the Champs-Élysées. During her quest to find the best breads, desserts, and cheeses at the myriad pâtisseries, boulangeries, and bistros, Thomas revels in the historic and cultural joys of Paris--the parks, markets, and of course the gorgeous Canal Saint-Martin. Thankfully, her vivid descriptions of baguettes, macaroons, and baba au rhum do more than merely tempt--supplemented with an extensive list of Thomas' favorite bakeries in Paris and New York, readers can get their own taste of two cities, though Thomas' is the tale to beat. --Publisher Weekly Feb 2012

Two cities have long held a special allure for me: Paris and New York. For decades, I figured I would find a way to live in both. These dreams haven t materialized, but I have been able to savor a soupcon of them vicariously through Amy Thomas s new memoir, Paris, My Sweet. When a job at Louis Vuitton unexpectedly falls into her lap, Thomas leaves New York to settle in Paris. The ensuing two years of adventures some sweet and some bittersweet are layered with memories of New York life in this delicious account. A savvy sweetaholic, Thomas ices this literary gateau with a list of more than 100 bite-worthy bakeries in her two adopted homes. --National Geographic Traveler Feb 2012

Like a tasty Parisian bonbon, this book is filled with sweet surprises. --David Lebovitz, New York Times bestselling author of The Sweet Life in Paris

Amy Thomas seduces us in the same manner than Paris seduced her - one exquisite morsel at a time. --Nicole Robertson, author of Paris in Color --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
