About the Book

Part love-story, part wine-splattered family cookbook, a delicious memoir for any woman who has ever suspected that lunch in Paris could change her life.
Part love story, part wine-splattered cookbook, LUNCH IN PARIS is a deliciously tart, forthright and funny story of falling in love with a Frenchman and moving to the world's most romantic city - not the Hollywood version, but the real Paris, a heady mix of blood sausage and irregular verbs. From gutting her first fish (with a little help from Jane Austen) and battling bad-tempered butchers to discovering heavenly chocolate shops, Elizabeth Bard finds that learning to cook and building a new life as a stranger in an even stranger land have a lot in common. Along the way she learns the true meaning of home - and the real reason French women don't get fat ... Peppered with mouth-watering recipes, this memoir is the perfect treat for any woman who has ever suspected that lunch in Paris could change her life. this edition includes Reading Notes and a little taste of what Elizabeth's up to next ... 'A memoir and love story wrapped around recipes - what's not to love?' Daily telegraph 'this mouth-watering memoir is Bard's romantic recounting of how she met her French husband via a select menu of delights' Vogue 'Do you enjoy a dose of delish reality with your love stories? then you'll enjoy this intimate insight into the real-life romance between New Yorker Elizabeth and Frenchman Gwendal ... tres magnifique!'

Critical Praise

* 'Lunch in Paris is delicious, romantic and sexy, just as as the title indicates. What keeps you is the story of woman finding herself after she finds love, and the challenge that entails. I devoured this book with all the gusto I would bring to a plate of steak tartare with pommes frites." Giulia Melucci, author of I Loved, I Lost, I Made Spaghetti"As charming and coquettish as Paris itself, Lunch in Paris reawakens our tired hearts and palates with a deliciously passionate journey through the city of lights. Be prepared to be seduced by french kisses, the richest chocolate, and the sweet charm of Bard's prose." (Nani Power, author of Feed the Hungry )-'Lunch in Paris is delicious, romantic and sexy ...
