Well Done, Dr. Crichton
The Great Train Robbery - Michael Crichton,Michael Kitchen

As a teenager, I read a number of Crichton's books but, so far, this is the only one I have wanted to go back and read again. If you want an action-packed story, you won't be happy with Crichton's style here. Along with a highly fictionalized version of the Great Train Robbery of 1855 (aka The Great Gold Robbery), there is a lot of background material woven into the telling of the tale. Michael Kitchen's gravelly voice was perfect for the narration.

I Savored This Book
My Paris Kitchen: Recipes and Stories - David Lebovitz

I had so much fun reading this cookbook/memoir over the past week. I didn't hurry, just enjoyed the recipes, the little stories, and the vibrant pictures that David Lebovitz included. 

 

I will say that I found the recipes intriguing and thought everything sounded great. I am now addicted to salted butter and found out things that I never knew before regarding duck fat. Also I now want to buy all the duck fat and make it with potatoes. Mmmmmm.

 

I would say that I wish that we had more stories included. The recipes are great, but the book comes alive for me when Mr. Lebovitz gives readers an intimate look at his life in Paris. Whether it is finding out where to get kale or how to purchase cheeses, he makes everything seem like a fun adventure. 

 

One warning. Do not read this book if you are even a little bit hungry.

Reading progress update: I've read 20%.
My Paris Kitchen: Recipes and Stories - David Lebovitz

I'm loving this. The pictures alone are worth it!

 

He's a very good story teller and the recipes seem easy enough. I'm embarrassed I have done a few no nos he mentions such as washing your knives in the dishwasher.
