My Paris Kitchen: Recipes and Stories by David Lebovitz is a cookbook for lovers of all things related to Paris. David is a highly competent chef who also writes beautifully. He is the author of a number of cookbooks and was the pastry chef at the famous Chez Panisse in Berkeley for almost thirteen years. He now lives in Paris.
This book is divided into courses (appetizers, first course etc) and the recipes range across many cuisines not just French.
For example, in the appetisers, recipes for hummus and baba ganoush sit alonside those for tapenade and rillettes. Later in the book, classic Franch recipes for Provencal vegetables, celery root puree and potatoes cooked in duck fat share space with recipes for Israeli couscous and dukkah roasted cauliflower.
The recipes are very detailed and usually include an introduction discussing the main ingredients.
This book is certainly well worth space in your cookbook library.
