Lunch in Paris is an instant and tantalizing transportation to the Avenue des Champs-Élysées. Plus, it’s quite a bit cheaper than a return ticket to France.
Each chapter focuses on one of Paris’s arrondissements (neighborhoods) and is studded with dreamy location photography. With fifty simple and classic examples of French cuisine, this book proves that you need not go to Le Cordon Bleu culinary school to perfect a Pork and Pistachio Terrine. Or a Caramelized Onion- and Goat-Cheese Tartlet. Or an Olive-and-Anchovy Pissaladière. Or a Comté-and-Asparagus Tart (among many more).
With poetic and loving descriptions of each arrondissement featured, Lunch in Paris lets you bring the City of Light to your very own kitchen. Trust us: your family and friends will love you all the more for it. Bon appétit!
