Hello friends! How was everyone's weekend?
I finished a wonderful book this weekend that I highly recommend to all you Francophiles out there. Elizabeth Bard's memoir, Lunch in Paris: A Love Story, with Recipes, tells the story of how the author learned to "live and eat à la française," while building a life in Paris with her French amour, Gwendal. The book is both a love story and a celebration of France's rich culinary traditions, but as the Publisher's Weekly review notes, the book's underlying theme is "how to build an adult life that reconciles societal pressure, personal ambition, cultural dissonance, and true happiness." And who can't relate to that?
Now that I've finished Lunch in Paris,I need a new book, so tell me: what are you reading these days? I'd love to hear your suggestions.
