Food writer and ex-Chez Panisse dessert chef, Lebovitz,  shares the secrets of French cooking and Parisian living.  The quirks and idiosyncrasies of Parisians that often leave visitors outraged (queue jumping, unhelpful sales staff) are explained with humor and Lebovitz also provides a goldmine of food tips such as where to find the best croissants, chocolates and cheese,  when not to use a knife and fork and how to order coffee.  There is a list of his favorite foodie haunts and recipes so you can recreate the flavors of Paris chez-vous. A bonus of useful information for anyone planning a trip but also a delicious read for anyone with a sweet tooth and the ache for French cuisine.
