Living the Sweet Life in Paris: David & David

I just realized how much David Tanis and David Lebovitz have in common. Both are gay men who worked at Chez Panisse, moved to Paris, dislike Beaujolais Nouveau, and have written cookbooks. They're also friends. But I think the similarities end there. 

Tanis says things like, "I'm not much for rich, gooey cakes. . ." and "I scoff at the early asparagus that arrives around Valentine's Day. . ." and "You are probably not surprised to learn that I am not a fan of fusion. They can keep their wasabi aioli, thank you very much. . . ."

Lebovitz says things like, "You can't miss with a crisp disk of meringue topped with a scoop of coffee ice cream, warm chocolate sauce, and candied nuts. . ." and "How can you not love mole?" and "I always find myself eating more than one would think prudent. . ." He has invented recipes for Altoid brownies, and (fusion) green tea madeleines.

I have to make Altoid brownies.


  1. Altoid brownies not too appetizing, but I am curiously interested in trying one.

  2. There are two variations to the omega replica Formula 1 watch collection, the alarm and automatic. The automated adaptation is abundant added analytic priced and downgraded from the alarm version, but still a acceptable sports watch. The breitling replica automated adaptation is bass down with a argent punch and argent sub-dials. The cast name is placed craftily beneath the 12 o'clock mark and the Formula 1 logo placed just aloft the 6 o'clock mark. The alarm Tag Heuer replica watch has a white or atramentous sub dials, agnate to the cartier replica automated version. However, it is the additional adverse that stands out from a lot of watches. It actualization a aggregate of three colors that anniversary covers 20 seconds. It is the ablaze colors that accompany the watch to activity while still advancement a able and admirable design. Not alone is it the absolute timing that makes Tag Heuer's watches so accepted amidst assorted antic events, but aswell the rolex replica admirable adventurous look. It's simple and chichi at the aforementioned time, with abounding of the watches accepting chronographs. Although there are watches in abounding altered sports, it is the watches plan with motor antagonism that has sparked a Formula 1 replica watch accumulating of its own. The Tag Heuer replica watch was initially alien in 1986, with abounding of the a lot of replica watches uk arresting racers antic the watch. There are several actualization that accomplish this accumulating angle out from added watches, but it is the ablaze colors that bolt the eye first. It uses a chancy but different architecture arrangement by analogous the punch blush with the accents put on the replica watches alfresco of the case.
