Description

"From the New York cupcake wars to the perfect Parisian macaron, Thomas's passion is palpable, her sweet tooth, unstoppable."--Elizabeth Bard, bestselling author of Lunch in Paris Forever a girl obsessed with all things French, sweet freak Amy Thomas landed a gig as rich as the purest dark chocolate: leave Manhattan for Paris to write ad copy for Louis Vuitton. Working on the Champs-elysees, strolling the charming streets, and exploring the best patisseries and boulangeries, Amy marveled at the magnificence of the City of Light. But does falling in love with one city mean turning your back on another? As much as Amy adored Paris, there was part of her that felt like a humble chocolate chip cookie in a sea of pristine macarons. PARIS, MY SWEET explores how the search for happiness can be as fleeting as a salted caramel souffle's rise, as intensely satisfying as molten chocolate cake, and about how the life you're meant to live doesn't always taste like the one you envisioned. Part love letter to Paris, part love letter to New York, and total devotion to all things sweet, PARIS, MY SWEET is a treasure map for anyone with a hunger for life. "Like a tasty Parisian bonbon, this book is filled with sweet surprises."--David Lebovitz, New York Times bestselling author of The Sweet Life in Paris "Amy Thomas seduces us in the same manner that Paris seduced her --one exquisite morsel at a time."--Nichole Robertson, author of Paris in Colorshow more

Review quote

""Paris, My Sweet" A Year in the City of Light (and Dark Chocolate) (Sourcebooks) balances her unexpected homesickness-often taking the form of a yen for Billy's cupcakes and Levain cookies-with delicious new findings, including sexy boutique chocolatiers (Pigalle's L'Etoile d'Or) and Paris' best madeleine purveyor (Bl Sucr )." - VOGUE.comshow more
