I loved this book. I enjoyed her voice & her experiences. The recipes don't hurt either. I feel I understand the French better after reading this book.
I must admit I was expecting more from this book. What exactly the “more” was I can not say but it just did not live up to my expectations. Lunch in Paris is a non fiction account of Bard’s transition to life in Paris after the globe trotting New Yorker moves there permanently after falling in love ...
My favourite part of this book would have to be the recipes at the end of each chapter.I don't particularly read autobiographies but this one was a nice surprise. It took me a while to get into it but I did finish it.
It all started with lunch. Bard met a man and it soon became quite apparent that he was The One. And, happily, Paris, it seems, was The Place to Live. All turning out nicely for Bard, and she got a book out of the deal as well. A satisfying book at that.
Really enjoyed this memoir. An easy read with lots of recipes, a couple I'm inspired to try.
