Store-Events_sp14_BookSignings_ParisLebovitz

Meet Popular Food Blogger, David Lebovitz, Author of My Paris Kitchen, with Co-Hosts Evan Kleiman of KCRW's Good Food and Cookbook Author, Alice Medrich
Multiple Locations


Join us at your local Williams-Sonoma store for a special book signing and talk with David Lebovitz. He will be signing copies of his new cookbook, My Paris Kitchen: Recipes and Stories.

David Lebovitz has been a professional cook and baker for most of his life; he spent nearly thirteen years at Chez Panisse until he left the restaurant business to write books. He moved to Paris in 2004 and turned davidlebovitz.com into a phenomenally popular blog. In addition to being featured in Bon Appétit, Food & Wine and the New York Times, he is the author of six books, including The Perfect Scoop, Ready for Dessert, and a New York Times best-selling memoir called The Sweet Life in Paris.

It’s been ten years since David Lebovitz packed up his most treasured cookbooks, a well-worn cast-iron skillet, and his laptop and moved to Paris. In that time, the culinary culture of France has shifted as a new generation of chefs and home cooks—most notably in Paris—incorporates ingredients and techniques from around the world into traditional French dishes.

In My Paris Kitchen, David remasters the classics, introduces lesser-known fare, and presents 100 sweet and savory recipes that reflect the way modern Parisians eat today. You’ll find Soupe à l’oignon, Cassoulet, Coq au vin, and Croque-monsieur, as well as Smoky barbecue-style pork, Lamb shank tagine, Dukkah-roasted cauliflower, Salt cod fritters with tartar sauce, and Wheat berry salad with radicchio, root vegetables, and pomegranate. And of course, there’s dessert: Warm chocolate cake with salted butter caramel sauce, Duck fat cookies, Bay leaf poundcake with orange glaze, French cheesecake...and the list goes on. David also shares stories told with his trademark wit and humor, and lush photography taken on location around Paris and in David’s kitchen reveals the quirks, trials, beauty, and joys of life in the culinary capital of the world.
