Summary
  • "A chef buys an apartment in Paris and endures the headaches and excitement of renovating his own corner of paradise in the City of Light"--
  • "Bestselling author and world-renowned chef David Lebovitz continues to mine the rich subject of his evolving expat life in Paris as he revamps a new apartment. His story is seasoned with dozens of new recipes inspired by his experience. After living in the City of Light for over ten years, David has decided to make Paris his home. He's mastered the culinary side of France through dealings with his local chocolatiers and bakers and knows which marché sells the ripest strawberries and most luscious cheese; all that's left to do is build the perfect Paris kitchen. But nothing prepared him for the perplexing experience of trying to buy--and then renovate--a fixer-upper in the emerging 11th arrondissement. Along the way, he gets much-needed support from his partner, Romain--a vrai Parisien (true Parisian) with a bushy mustache and the confident, no-nonsense bravado typical of a local, who talks David through many IKEA meltdowns and construction malfaçons--and shares a Vespa with his glamorous, chain-smoking realtor, Catherine, while battling a team of contractors with a laissez-faire attitude toward construction led by Claude, whose catchphrase--'pas de problème'--only papers over how many problems there will be ... L'Appart includes brand-new mouthwatering recipes at the end of each chapter. (While not everything about David's experience is sweet, the buttery almond-filled croissants are!) In the midst of it all, he reveals the adventures and occasional headaches that accompany carving out a place for oneself in a foreign country while never losing sight of the magic that inspired him to make Paris his home."--Jacket
