Lunch In Paris

Staff Review: Lunch In Paris

"Lunch In Paris" by Elizabeth Bard

Cover: 'Lunch In Paris'


If you are a travel and food enthusiast, then this is a great book for you! Lunch In Paris is a memoir telling the story of how the author, Elizabeth, met her Parisian husband and ended up living in Paris. Not only does Elizabeth give up a life in the United States for love but she needs to learn a new way of life while discovering a new direction for her life. As she grows, she learns about food in a whole new way and becomes something of a foodie. This book of self-discovery opens us up to a whole new side of Paris and living as a French citizen that I haven't read before. Elizabeth includes some wonderful recipes to accompany her understanding of food and mastering the Parisian outdoor markets. This book is a wonderful story that incorporates a love for food, but isn't only about food. I took a vacation to Paris (and grew hungry) every time I sat down to read this fascinating book.
