Has a meal ever changed your life? Part love story, part wine-splattered cookbook, Lunch in Paris is a deliciously tart, forthright and funny story of falling in love with a Frenchman and moving to the world’s most romantic city – not the Hollywood version, but the real Paris, a heady mix of blood sausage, pains aux chocolats and irregular verbs. From gutting her first fish (with a little help from Jane Austen) to discovering the French version of Death by Chocolate, Elizabeth Bard finds that learning to cook and building a new life have a lot in common. Peppered with recipes, this mouth-watering love story is the perfect treat for anyone who has ever suspected that lunch in Paris could change their life.

ABOUT THE BOOK Lunch in Paris: A Love Story with Recipes is not only a love letter to France and Elizabeth Bard’s husband Gwendal, but a love letter to good food as well. Bard takes the mundane aspects of solitary ingredients and writes about them so intricately that reading about a rare pave au poivre maes you to feel the steak in your mouth. What starts out as a one-afternoon stand (she and husband Gwendal had their first date in the afternoon) turns into a love affair of epic proportions not only with each other, but with their beloved France as well. The recipes almost always follow a significant event in Bard’s life. Upon meeting her future in-laws for the first time, after a five hour car ride, her nervousness is contagious. But all was well as Gwendal’s parents threw together a magnificent feast of poached cod with wilted leeks and homemade mayonnaise. Life would never be the same for Bard again, nor for Gwendal’s parents. After meeting her mother-in-law, Elizabeth, Nicole promptly signs up for English classes. MEET THE AUTHOR With over 25 years experience as a writer and editor, Lucille Barilla can get a job completed correctly and with flair! Her brain is a cesspool of information that, if not for her writing, would just sit there and go to waste! Thank goodness for instant recall about celebs and who they're dating, otherwise she would never be able to finish a TV guide crossword puzzle! EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK “Elizabeth Bard is originally a New Yorker and found her way to London in the early 2000’s. During a trip to attend a conference in Paris, she met her Gwendal and fell in love. Bard subsequently split her time between London and Paris, trying to make a long-distance relationship work, as she had vowed not to give up her independence. The pull of France; its food, people, life and of course her boyfriend was just too strong and Bard relocated to the south of France. ( Learning how to live in a place where both the language and customs were foreign to her was a challenge for Bard, who described herself as a lonely only child who only found her peace while strolling through the many museums New York had to offer. Bard later became fluent in the French language and began to learn the recipes that had been handed down to her husband’s family through generations. Buy a copy to keep reading!

When Elizabeth Bard followed a handsome Frenchman up the spiral staircase to a love nest in the heart of Paris, they thought they had found their perfect home. But life had other ideas.

Part memoir, part chocolate-smudged family cookbook, 'Picnic in Provence' is about everything that happens after the happily ever after, and reminds us that life, in and out of the kitchen, is a rendezvous with the unexpected.

‘Looks like not many tourists visit St Pierre et Miquelon,’ I mutter excitedly to Pip. ‘That is why this trip is going to be so brilliant.’ He looks at me questioningly. I am distracted by Gabriel’s unusually pallid face. ‘Oh my God, he’s going to be sick.’ Rosie set out on a tour of the French Overseas Departments and Territories (the ‘Dom-Toms’) with her husband and four young children, partly to make a documentary series but also to show the children it is possible to survive fourteen weeks without Hannah Montana. From Martinique to Réunion, crossing five continents, they eat stewed iguana, 400 croissants and – since the budget is small – copious amounts of Campbell’s soup. Candid, darkly humorous and slightly mad, cut with a dash of French history, this memoir offers insights, amusement and hope for anyone who has ever travelled en famille.

Tips, tricks and recipes to make your feasts and fetes more French, from the New York Times bestselling author of Lunch in Paris and Picnic in Provence When Elizabeth Bard, a New Yorker raised on Twizzlers and instant mac and cheese, fell for a handsome Frenchman and moved to Paris, she discovered a whole new world of culinary delights. First in Paris, then in a tiny village in Provence, Elizabeth explored the markets, incorporating new ingredients and rituals into her everyday meals and routines. After 15 years of cooking in her own French kitchen, making French friends--and observing her slim and elegant French mother-in-law--Elizabeth has gathered a treasure trove of information that has radically changed her own eating habits for the better. She realized that what most Americans call "dieting"--smaller portions, no snacking, a preference for seasonal fruits and vegetables, and limited sugar--the French simply call "eating." And they do it with pleasure, gusto, and flair. With wit, sound advice, and easy-to-follow recipes, Bard lets her readers in on a range of delightful--and useful--French secrets to eating and living well, including hunger as the new foreplay, the top five essential French cooking tools and 15 minute meals popular throughout France, and the concept of benevolent dictatorship: why French kids eat veggies, and how to get yours to eat them, too. Whether you're ready for a complete kitchen transformation or simply looking for dinner party inspiration, Dinner Chez Moi is a fun, practical, and charming how-to guide that will add a dash of joie de vivre to your kitchen--and your life!

The memoir of a young diplomat’s wife who must reinvent her dream of living in Paris—one dish at a time When journalist Ann Mah’s diplomat husband is given a three-year assignment in Paris, Ann is overjoyed. A lifelong foodie and Francophile, she immediately begins plotting gastronomic adventures à deux. Then her husband is called away to Iraq on a year-long post—alone. Suddenly, Ann’s vision of a romantic sojourn in the City of Light is turned upside down. So, not unlike another diplomatic wife, Julia Child, Ann must find a life for herself in a new city. Journeying through Paris and the surrounding regions of France, Ann combats her loneliness by seeking out the perfect pain au chocolat and learning the way the andouillette sausage is really made. She explores the history and taste of everything from boeuf Bourguignon to soupe au pistou to the crispiest of buckwheat crepes. And somewhere between Paris and the south of France, she uncovers a few of life’s truths. Like Sarah Turnbull’s Almost French and Julie Powell’s New York Times bestseller Julie and Julia, Mastering the Art of French Eating is interwoven with the lively characters Ann meets and the traditional recipes she samples. Both funny and intelligent, this is a story about love—of food, family, and France.

The Wednesday Chef cooks her heart out, finds her way home, and shares her recipes with us It takes courage to turn your life upside down, especially when everyone is telling you how lucky you are. But sometimes what seems right can feel deeply wrong. My Berlin Kitchen tells the story of how one thoroughly confused, kitchen-mad perfectionist broke off her engagement to a handsome New Yorker, quit her dream job, and found her way to a new life, a new man, and a new home in Berlin—one recipe at a time. Luisa Weiss grew up with a divided heart, shuttling back and forth between her father in Boston and her Italian mother in Berlin. She was always yearning for home—until she found a new home in the kitchen. Luisa started clipping recipes in college and was a cookbook editor in New York when she decided to bake, roast, and stew her way through her by then unwieldy collection over the course of one tumultuous year. The blog she wrote to document her adventures in (and out) of the kitchen, The Wednesday Chef, soon became a sensation. But she never stopped hankering for Berlin. Luisa will seduce you with her stories of foraging for plums in abandoned orchards, battling with white asparagus at the tail end of the season, orchestrating a three-family Thanksgiving in Berlin, and mending her broken heart with batches (and batches) of impossible German Christmas cookies. Fans of her award-winning blog will know the happy ending, but anyone who enjoyed Julie and Julia will laugh and cheer and cook alongside Luisa as she takes us into her heart and tells us how she gave up everything only to find love waiting where she least expected it.
