Lunch in Paris: A Love Story, with Recipes by Elizabeth Bard
In this pleasant memoir, an American journalist married to a Frenchman inspires lessons in culinary detente. Bard was working as a journalist in London and possessed of the "wonderful puppy-dog enthusiasm" of young Americans when she first met her husband-to-be, Gwendal, a computer engineer from Brittany.
Soon he had the foresight to put her name on the gas bill of his Parisian apartment in the 10th arrondissement, and they were destined to marry (and cook) together.
