L'appart

The Delights and Disasters of Making My Paris Home




Bestselling author and world-renowned chef David Lebovitz continues to mine the rich subject of his evolving ex-pat life in Paris, now in paperback, using his maddening experiences in apartment renovation as a launching point for stories about French culture, food, and what it means to revamp one’s life. Dozens of new recipes are included.

When David Lebovitz decided to buy and update an apartment in his adopted home city, he never imagined he would encounter so much inexplicable red tape while contending with the famously inconsistent European work ethic and hours. Lebovitz maintains his distinctive sense of humor with the help of his partner, Romain, peppering this renovation story with recipes from his award-winning Paris kitchen. In the midst of it all, he reveals the adventure that accompanies carving out a place for yourself in a foreign country—under absurd conditions—while never losing sight of the magic that inspired him to move to the City of Light many years ago and to truly make his home there.
