Paris Booksigning – This Weekend!

This Saturday (April 30), from 4 to 6pm, I’ll be signing books at WHSmith book shop in Paris.

The store will be open as usual during this event so there won’t be any long-winded speeches from me or anything (whew!) – so you’re welcome to show up any time and say hi, and get a book signed. Or just say hi! (And check out my new haircut nearly-shaved head…)

Copies of the brand-new paperback edition of The Sweet Life in Paris will be available.

There’s also a Facebook Event page if you’d like to RSVP but that’s not necessary. And if you wish to reserve a book, you can do so at the link for WHSmith below, by contacting the store by e-email or telephone.

WHSmith Paris Book Event: May 19th

This coming week, I’ll be doing a book signing for my new book, Ready for Dessert, at the WHSmith bookstore in Paris. The event will start at 7pm and promises to be as fun as last year’s event. Although I won’t be reading wacky messages this time around, because I’m all out.

(But the weekend isn’t over yet…so there’s still time.)

If you’re in town and would like to attend. But please RSVP so they know how many absinthe jello shots* to prepare.

Would love to see you all there!


*Just kidding. But wouldn’t that be fun?

The A-Z Guide to French Food

When I was taking pastry classes at Ecole Lenôtre years ago, they had a shop at the school filled with all sorts of great professional baking equipment. Aside from the room where the croissants were freshly-baked (and handed out) every hour, it was my favorite place at the school.

PIled up on the shelf was also a stack of slender books: The A-Z of French Food. I flipped though it and was impressed by how much was in this comprehensive little guide, so I bought one. Since then, I’ve used it countless times, and it’s the book that I inevitably reach for first when I have any questions about French dishes, ingredients, or cooking terms, from the normal, to the obscure.

In fact, I wished I’d had it the week before, when I was sitting in a restaurant and the waiter proudly presented me with a big, steaming cassolette, piled high with tripe. And there I was, thinking that I’d soon be digging into cassoulet, the classic Gascon dish of beans and duck confit. Quelle déception!*
