    Looking forward to the return of the ‘What I got at the french market” videos

      I had to put a pause on them as I was swarmed by other market shoppers, on several occasions, who were standing and pressing so close to me that I could feel their breath on my face, which was uncomfortable (and unsafe) so was doing my shopping at small stores that sell local and regional produce, such as Terroirs d’Avenir and Au Bout du Champs, rather than at the outdoor markets. I’d like to do videos from those shops since I love what they carry but with Covid, but it’s been a challenge to do on-site videos in Paris with the numbers continuing to rise. Hopefully things will improve soon!

    Thank you for your schedule! I’m one of the 3 ladies who create the @aperohour Instagram page! I hope someday you’ll be able to visit Portland or Seattle too. You are AMAZING David Lebovitz! Happy travels, have fun and be safe. In other words, keep on keepin’ on!

      Thanks so much for being a part of the Apéro Hours! It was fun to meet & connect with so many people and nice to see folks bond during the pandemic, when most of us were stuck at home, creating a community that’s still going strong : )

    • Lynda Todd

    Have you left Paris for good.

    • Evie Lieb

    It will be super to welcome you back to Bakers Dozen, David! We have received your Savory Apéritif Cake recipe. Can you suggest a substitute for the bacon or can it just be omitted without significantly affecting the outcome? Sending thanks and warm regards.

      • David
      David Lebovitz

      It can be omitted or turkey bacon can be used for those avoiding pork. (I think they are similar soy products that will also add that smoky flavor too!) Looking forward!

    • Evie Lieb

    Thanks so much for your very quick reply, David!

    • Jana Moore

    Hi. I signed up for your paid newsletter and extra content but haven’t seen anything for weeks. Did I do something wrong?

      • David
      David Lebovitz

      You should be getting 1-3 extra missives a month. If you go to this page you should see the newsletter archives. All of the newsletters should be available and visible to you, the free monthly newsletters as well as the others. (To non-subscribers, there will be a little lock icon on those additional newsletters that come out during the rest of the month for paid subscribers.) Substack, my newsletter provider, offers a way to check if your newsletter subscription is active here.

      I do see you are on the paid newsletter list so please check your spam folder. The welcome message you should have received advises subscribers to do that, as well as putting ‘davidlebovitz’ into your “safe” filter, if your email provider offers that. If you don’t see any newsletters in there, please send a message here. Thanks!

    I just read this post, so I’m bummed that I missed the virtual Baker’s Dozen event.

    I was friends with Amy Pressman. She was the cream of the crop as a person in addition to being a gifted chef.

    It would have been nice to see what the group she co-founded is doing now.

      • David
      David Lebovitz

      Amy was, indeed, very special. She was generous, energetic (I think she was a powerlifter, if I recall?), and a very talented baker. It’s nice to see the Bakers Dozen going strong. You can check out their website and join to get news of events or follow them on Instagram and/or Facebook.

    “My Paris Kitchen” was lovely: warm, friendly, helpful … and funny. Thank you for sharing a slice of your life.

    Kind regards.
