My Paris Kitchen will make you want to move

My Paris Kitchen will make you want to move

I don't cook. I've never been to France. (Two things that I'm changing by the end of the year.) But imagine my surprise one afternoon when I sat and started to read David Lebowitz's new cookbook My Paris Kitchen—and didn't get up until I closed the back cover. He's big in the blog world, which partly explains why the cookbook doesn't feel at all clinical. That and he's also just a fine writer with an eye for the revealing fact, such as when he tells you “There is a line at all hours at the more than 1,260 bakeries in Paris." Suddenly I want to stand in one! But first I'll reread his book and start looking up copper pot prices on Amazon. Read more about My Paris Kitchenincluding a recipe for Duck Fat Cookies!—on DuJour.

Yes, I would very much like to eat that chicken. My Paris Kitchen is released this week from Ten Speed Press.
