“David Lebovitz is the greatest thing to happen to dessert since the spoon, but this time he shows that beyond his artful nose and flawless taste, he also has a keen reporter’s eye. If Paris intrigues, excites, or merely interests you, read this book.” —Mort Rosenblum, author of The Secret Life of the Seine, A Goose in Toulouse, Olives, and Chocolate: A Bittersweet Story of Dark and Light
“Cooks aren’t usually such good writers—so funny, skeptical, and observant. He’s a wonderful one. Also, I’m a fervent fan of his ice-cream book, so I can’t wait to cook my way through his other recipes.”
—Diane Johnson, author of Le Divorce

The book tells you of myths and truths that you'd probably heard of Parisians and by the end of it, your ill-informed, romanticist picture of Paris shatters and you might feel content living in Muradabad, dipping Parle-G in cutting chai.
Lebovitz throws in a generous amount of recipes in there and educates the reader of the Parisian way of life in a funny way, often anecdotally, laughing at himself. A nice, light read. Do try the recipes- they're really good! You could have a mug of super thick hot chocolate as Lebovitz suggests somewhere in there with a recipe.
