The Sweet Life in Paris
The Sweet Life in Paris Delicious Adventures in the World's Most Glorious--and Perplexing--city By Lebovitz, David Book - 2011

This is a lovely book. It gives a charming account of an American pastry chef living in Paris. While he discusses the beauty of Paris, he also discusses the day to day life of a Parisian. There were a lot of details I wouldn't have known; shower curtains aren't as common in France, banks don't always have change, and ordering cafe au lait in a restaurant is incorrect. Each chapter also includes recipes, but they all seemed far too ambitious for a bad cook like me!
