Very cute book. I enjoyed it thoroughly.
Now, I have a dilemma. We're going to dinner at a friend's house tonight and I'm supposed to bring an appetizer. Lebovitz has a recipe for a cake aux lardons et fromage bleu that intrigues me. I typed the French name first because it sounds better than the translation which is bacon and blue cheese cake and does not make me hungry.
Here's a description: "A departure from their sweet American counterparts, these savory quick breads are welcome served as an hors d'oeuvre before dinner, thinly sliced, with glasses of cool Muscadet or a snappy Sauvignon."
That sounds kind of good, right? Or does it just sound weird? Thoughts?
*I've been calling it "Living the Sweet Life in Paris" because that's title on my galley copy. I apologize for the error.
