My Paris Kitchen by David Lebovitz
I mean really, the cover alone will get anyone salivating almost immediately. My favorite recipe that was a huge hit in our home was the Parisian Gnocchi. Um hello intense rich creaminess with fluffy gnocchi goodness. For reals. And the leftovers were just as good the ensuing days after.
I might have also printed out a couple pages of more recipes that I'm DYING to try soon - like the Caramel Pork Ribs (whhaaaat), the Chicken Pot Parmentier (similar to a pot pie), the Butternut Squash Crumble (is fall here yet?), the Salted Butter Caramel-Chocolate Mousse (once I'm no longer dieting of course), the Chocolate-Dulce De Leche Tart (I MEAN COME ON!), the Honey Spice Bread (this has my name all over it) and finally the Apricot Kernel Ice Cream (yes I might have finally pulled the trigger on buying a Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker just because of this one recipe).
I'd like to give proper credit of the extra dimples in my thighs to NetGalley and Ten Speed Press for graciously allowing me an advance glimpse into this amazingness of yummy recipes!
Y'all, what are you waiting for? Buy. Here. Now.
Recommend: Without hesitation.
Rating **** (so why not 5 stars after all the ranting & raving? I'm not the biggest fan of stories mixed in with all the recipes, it just doesn't do much for me.)
