Lunch in Paris: A Love Story, with Recipes

  • In Paris for a weekend visit, Elizabeth Bard sat down to lunch with a handsome Frenchman - and never went home again.

    Was it love at first sight? Or was it the way her knife slid effortlessly through her pave au poivre, the steak's pink juices puddling into the buttery pepper sauce?

    Lunch In Paris is the story of a young American woman caught up in two passionate love affairs - with new love, Gwendal, and with French cuisine.

    Plunging headlong into the most romantic of cities, Bard encounters bustling open-air markets, hipster bistros, heavenly chocolate shops. She learns to gut her first fish (with a little help from Jane Austen), and soothe pangs of homesickness (with the rise of a chocolate souffle). The deeper she immerses herself in French cuisine, the more Paris itself begins to translate.
