Why you Should Visit the David in Paris
I am requesting that you humor me for a bit in this post. This past weekend I went to see the movie Julie & Julia and let me just say that it’s thoroughly entertaining, a must see. Anyway, the movie obviously got me thinking about French cooking (and if you don’t know that the movie is about Julia Child and Julie Powell a woman how blogged her way through Mastering the Art of French Cooking, then I can only politely ask “Where have you been?”). So I went on a quest to revue a great blog featuring…what else…French cooking. And I found one. David Lebovitz’s, Living the Sweet Life in Paris. Mr. Lebovitz is a accomplished pastry chef and author who has lived in Paris since 2002. He not only blogs recipes…mouthwatering recipes that is, but also such musings about what the difference is between American and French cooks and food. While these pontifications would appear to be somewhat dull subjects, he writes them in such a way that you laugh out loud. His blogs imagery is vibrant and alive. Moreover, he posts every other day. The blog is also sweetened by the fact that you can search particular categories, such as “David’s favorite posts” “Paris” and “Candy or Sweets” etc…or by recipes (not individual recipes but as a general whole). Furthermore, if you want a monthly archive all you have to do is scroll to the bottom of the main page and click “Archives.” Besides the fact the site is funny, thoughtful, in English, and the recipes are wonderful, he also blogs about food failures something we all experience at one time or another. Therefore, visit Mr. Lebovitz, he’s Living the Sweet Life in Paris, we all need a get away every now and then.
