I just moved back to the US after 3 years in Paris. Help! What to do when I'm wishing I were back in Paris and longing for some good French cuisine? Why, I shop, of course! But lacking the requisite French culinary skills, I don't shop for groceries; I head straight to the book store. And today I found the perfect remedy for what ailed me. I purchased a copy of David Lebovitz's The Sweet Life in Paris, a fabulous collection of anecdotes about his life in the City of deLights. I'd been meaning to read it since it first appeared last month. From the introduction to the final page, the book reads the same way you would relish a French feast. Each chapter is like a dish to be savored. Delightful to the senses, pleasing array of perfectly-timed morsels. One course to the next sauced with David's tangy, well-honed humor. And punctuated by his best recipes (so tempting that even I might try them, kitchen flunkie though I may be). And, like a proper diner of an exquisite French meal, I devoured it appreciatively from cover to cover in one sitting. So if you, too, would rather be in Paris, treat yourself to The Sweet Life in Paris. The next best thing to being there. Yum! (this review originally appeared on my blog "Polly-Vous Francais?)

I wish I finished this book before my taking my first trip to Paris! It's fun to read and makes you laugh every third page or so. There are plenty of insider food-related recommendations. And lots of unusual recipes! A fun summer read.

Some down-to-earth, ins-and-outs of a newcomer's daily life in Paris with wonderful recipes included.

Interesting and straight forward ups and downs of living in Paris. Parts were 'laugh out loud' plus enjoyed the recipes thrown in... especially that Chocolate Cake.

A friend loaned me a hardcover version of this book and I couldn't put it down until the last page was read. The addition of recipes was a bonus and I just purchased it for my Nook. Have been in Paris several times and could relate to so many of the incidents that the author experienced. The description of buying crepes from a food wagon selling many varieties of fillings on the street is perfect as I remembered enjoying a crepe with butter, sugar and fresh lemon juice. This is a must read!.

Not a bad book, but the author comes across as a little elitist. I really hate books by expats that do nothing but complain about the country they are currently in. This book does this about half the time.

Very short on stories and bits of memoir, much heavier on recipes. Which is fine, if I had known I was buying a book that is nearly more recipes than Foodie/France memoir.

I picked this up just to breeze through the recipes. I found myself reading the entire book and really enjoying every minute. A very nice light hearted read.

It is the best. I pick it up and reread it often.

Reading this made sad because I was only able to visit Paris for 3 days. When I arrived I actually wanted to cry due the joy of finally visiting my dream city. This book reminds me of that feeling with each page and each recipe. I only wish I had read this book before my trip. Cannot wait to crank up my Eartha Kitt CD, put on my pink shappy chic apron and escape to my favorite place via cooking...while sipping some wine.
