I have a new obsession. It is called David Lebovitz. It started when I made his salted caramel ice-cream and then discovered his recipe for chocolate brownies. It then moved to his book dedicated to AMAZING ice-cream recipes called The Perfect Scoop. The obsession has now manifested in his tome about life in Paris.
My Sweet Life in Paris is very entertaining and sprinkled with some hilarious anecdotes on the French and their way of life. There is some laugh out loud stories including a classic on his grocery shopping experiences and one about the moment he realised he was a Parisienne ! After each chapter David shares a recipe and everthing I’ve made has been a winner (there is a few that are gluten free).
One of the things I made from the book was David’s version of Oven Baked Pork Ribs.
Yum! These were great – taste better than they look. I can’t share the recipe as I didn’t adapt the recipe and can’t find the recipe online to give you the link. Suffice to say, you might have to buy the book!
I’ve now signed up for David’s blogs and every day (or second day), I’m whisked away somewhere wonderful hearing about his food adventures…be it an open air market in Switzerland, a cheese sensation called Malakoff or getting the lowdown on Caramel and Cheese Popcorn from a store in Chicago – which, yeah I know, sounds a bizarre combination, but apparently there is a cult following for it (which includes Oprah).
Reading David’s blog makes me want to get on a plane immediately !
Au revoir !
