An American in Paris: an  interview with  Chef David Lebovitz, author of "My Paris Kitchen: Recipes and Stories"


An American in Paris – It’s been ten years since Chef David Lebovitz packed up his most treasured cookbooks, a well-worn cast-iron skillet, and his laptop and moved to Paris. The former pastry chef at Chez Panisse, multiple cookbook author, and well-known food blogger has just published My Paris Kitchen, Recipes and Stories that reflect the way Parisians eat today and feature lush photography taken in David's Parisian kitchen and around Paris.

David is a born storyteller as well as a brilliant chef. His vignettes and stories preceding each recipe take us into his life even as he’s waxing poetic about why the world’s best butter is salted. His book is about his culinary love affair with his adopted city, with all its beauty and quirks.  Listen as chef David Lebovitz reflects on salted butter and matters as crucial as if there is such a thing as French food and talks about abut his recipes, classical and others.

At a time when French cuisine is accused of  serving ready-made meals produced offsite at large industrial kitchens and wasting away its culinary supremacy,  Chef Lebovitz writes about the benefits of change and of  open air marchés or farmers markets where the farmers’ stands often have the longest lines.
