The Food Lover's Guide to Paris (5th edition)
In 1980, when I arrived in Paris from New York City....
I had already proposed my first book, to be titled The Food Lover's Guide to Paris. Leaving my job as a food writer for The New York Times, the idea of moving to Paris for "graduate" work in food seemed like a good idea. I always wondered what food writers in Paris did between meals. I wanted to explore more than restaurants: I wanted to know which pastry shop offered the best croissants, which market would offer the freshest and most most spectacular produce, fish, meat, and cheese, which baker would win my heart with the crustiest sourdough bread, and where on earth would I find the most sublime and seductive selection of French cheeses. Soon I was writing restaurant reviews for the International Herald Tribune, and at the same time began sharing, as well, all my extracurricular food experiences with the world. And so was born my love of Paris, France, and writing about French food. The Food Lover's Guide to France followed, along with 12 other books, and most recently a complete revision of that first labor of love, The Food Lover's Guide to Paris, as a book and as an app for the iPhone or iPad.
