The Sweet Life in paris

By: David Lebovitz
Location: NF 641.59 LEB
Genre: Paris and Food

Paris- oh yummy, strawberry jam and croissaints, pomme de frits, mussles and garlic butter, hotdog in a roll with mustard and tomatoe sauce, tarte aux fraises- strawberry custard tarts!  Tartare- raw minced beef- I had that, was surprisingly yummy.
Anyway this book is all about life and food in Paris, it has stories, it has recipes, it makes you think of the movie Amelie and focuses on the three stable diet foods- chocolate, cheese and wine. But it also gives helpful hints on Paris social life like the mysteries of mens footwear, the rules of waiting in line and other vital survival tips for the City of Light. It is a New York Times Bestseller because it is good!!!
