My Paris Kitchen: Recipes and Stories

by David Lebovitz

Ten Speed Press | April 8, 2014 | Kobo Edition (eBook)

My Paris Kitchen: Recipes and Stories is rated 5 out of 5 by 3.
A collection of stories and 100 sweet and savory French-inspired recipes from popular food blogger David Lebovitz, reflecting the way modern Parisians eat today and featuring lush photography taken around Paris and in David's Parisian kitchen.

It’s been ten years since David Lebovitz packed up his most treasured cookbooks, a well-worn cast-iron skillet, and his laptop and moved to Paris. In that time, the culinary culture of France has shifted as a new generation of chefs and home cooks—most notably in Paris—incorporates ingredients and techniques from around the world into traditional French dishes.
     In My Paris Kitchen, David remasters the classics, introduces lesser-known fare, and presents 100 sweet and savory recipes that reflect the way modern Parisians eat today. You’ll find Soupe à l’oignon, Cassoulet, Coq au vin, and Croque-monsieur, as well as Smoky barbecue-style pork, Lamb shank tagine, Dukkah-roasted cauliflower, Salt cod fritters with tartar sauce, and Wheat berry salad with radicchio, root vegetables, and pomegranate. And of course, there’s dessert: Warm chocolate cake with salted butter caramel sauce, Duck fat cookies, Bay leaf poundcake with orange glaze, French cheesecake...and the list goes on. David also shares stories told with his trademark wit and humor, and lush photography taken on location around Paris and in David’s kitchen reveals the quirks, trials, beauty, and joys of life in the culinary capital of the world.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looking at myself in a mirror I recognize myself (a French transplant) at every page. The observations are so true I ordered a second copy to give to my grand daughter so she understands her roots. The recipes allow me to at last recreate the dishes and desserts that were part of my growing up years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An all round wonderful book!! I've not used this book as yet, but i've certainly had a grand time reading the tales, mentally playing with the recipes, and marking those that will be presented to friends in the near future ...I know I'll refer to this book quite often over the next while....it's a winner in my estimation, good reading, lovely photos, great recipes!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love in a cookbook I am delighted with My Paris Kitchen. David has a knack for making you feel at home in Paris. His recipes are wonderful -my family just loved his chicken in mustard sauce (pictured on the book's cover). But what makes the book such a standout is his stories of his life in Paris and the stories behind the recipes. This is truly a worthwhile investment. I had the pleasure of buying and reading, with enjoyment, his previous book - My Sweet Life in Paris - so I just knew that David's talents would be well showcased in this book and he didn't disappoint. I wish he was my friend.
