The Sweet Life in Paris + All-Clad Cookware Giveaway!


To celebrate the release today of my new book, The Sweet Life in Paris, the fine folks at All-Clad are giving away a brand-new 7 piece set of their magnificent stainless steel cookware!

All Clad set

This set includes a 2- and 3-quart saucepan, both with lids, a 10-inch frying pan, and a huge 8-quart stock pot. This is my favorite cookware (I carried mine over to Paris with me, piece-by-painstakingly-piece) and I’m thrilled they’re offering a set for my readers. If you’ve always wanted to start or add some All-Clad to your collection, this is a great way to do it.

The book features stories about my adventures in Paris, whether learning how not to walk in a straight line…or why the roads in Paris are all intended to take you right back to where you started, how I eloquently regaled startled guests at a swank dinner party with raptures about a magnificent black, er…zizi I saw in the hills Piedmont (and I’m not talking about the famous truffe noir d’Italie), and why, when the film version of my book comes out, Daniel Craig is the foremost candidate to play me in the movie.

(Hint: It’s not because of any abdominal similarities.)

Learn how I got into the thigh-high boots of the famous fish-boys, come along on my visit to Paris’ only clothing-optional sock shop, and learn how I manage to dodge the right hook of a certain dame d’une certain age, who’s become the love of my life.

Somehow, I managed to get nearly fifty recipes in there, with everything from the sweet to the savory, and then some. And if you’re the lucky winner of this amazing, spiffy set of All-Clad cookware, you’ll be cooking up a storm in your own kitchen, too.

Now excuse me, I’m off to book a trip back to Italy…


UPDATE: The contest is now closed, and the winner has been announced. Thanks to everyone for your participation! -David
