Lunch in Paris is a food-oriented memoir from Elizabeth Bard, an American journalist who finds one lunch in Paris changes her life. The summary says: "In Paris for a weekend visit, Elizabeth Bard sat down to lunch with a handsome Frenchman - and never went home again. Was it love at first sight? Or was it the way her knife slid effortlessly through her pave au poivre, the steak's pink juices puddling into the buttery pepper sauce? This memoir is about a young American woman caught up in two passionate love affairs - one with her new beau, Gwendal, the other with French cuisine. Packing her bags for a new life in the world's most romantic city, Elizabeth is plunged into a world of bustling open-air markets, hipster bistros, and size 2 femmes fatales. . . . Elizabeth finds that the deeper she immerses herself in the world of French cuisine, the more Paris itself begins to translate." With recipes included, the book is subtitled A Love Story with Recipes.
