I don t know about you but sometimes I get all excited about a book and then it arrives and I won t touch it Am I intimidated Procrastinating Saving it for the perfect day and mood I haven t figured out that part of my psyche yet The latest victim of this waiting game was David Lebovitz s cookbook My Paris Kitchen Recipes and Stories Visually it s a gorgeous volume and Lebovitz has a way with words So why did it sit on the side table untouched for almost 5 months That s a mystery for another day I d better get back to telling you how great it isIn My Paris Kitchen bloggerchefcelebrated food writer David Lebovitz invites the reader into his own kitchen As is evident from the cookbook s title Lebovitz makes his home in Paris France and has adapted his cooking and baking to his surroundings He visits local markets and shops and is dedicated to making regional dishes with the best ingredients and then to telling the world about it His particular fusion of American and French food sensibility and the stories that go with them is fascinating mouth watering and inspiring by turns This book may well spark a desire within the reader to pack up and make an Atlantic crossing That French market rotisserie chicken sounds divineWith most cookbooks I can tell pretty uickly that either the food or the writing is the chef s sweet spot I mean if they ve gotten to the point of writing a cookbook I assume that they re freakishly talented in both areas but usually I can tell if they re a writer who happens to be a great cookphotographer or a professional cook with a good story or restaurant to rep David Lebovitz is an eually brilliant writer and chef His writing put me right in the midst of the modern Paris cooking scene and his recipes sent me to foodie heaven Color me impressedI firmly believe that no cookbook review is complete without a taste test I had the ingredients on hand to make the individual chocolate cakes with salted dulce de leche so I made those first Verdict Very rich and a tad too salty The salt was toned down when they were served with vanilla ice cream as the recipe suggested But I had 6 little pots of extremely rich chocolate dessert and I was NOT going to go into a sugar coma for a cookbook review so I pawned them off on the roommates and scrapped the rest I decided to host a dinner party for my next taste test and prepared chicken with mustard the photo on the cookbook cover celery root puree and winter salad HOLY GOODNESS Batman Like 5 stars across the board All of it was amazing and I impressed both my guests and myself Just so good I m going all gooey and happy just remembering it David Lebovitz you and your Paris kitchen win all the thingsSo I hosted a successful dinner party loved the food and was all around awed by the writing BUT 10 points if you knew there was a ualifier coming I am not a fussy cook Baking is my thing and while I m happy to follow arcane instructions for a pastry payoff I m less likely to put in hours of prep work and while cooking It comes down to the fact that I can t see myself pulling this book down off the shelf than once a year And a cookbook should be loved and used often than that What does that mean in real terms I can recommend it whole heartedly to intermediate cooks especially those with a yen for international cuisine And I can appreciate its brilliance That said My Paris Kitchen won t live on my shelf I m not ready for it yet Maybe in 10 years In the meantime I can honestly recommend it for really marvelous food great writing and an authentic French experience I can see why it was on so many best cookbook of the year lists It s excellentRecommended for intermediate level cooks and above anyone interested in the modern Parisian food scene and those who appreciate superb writing
