Pressestimmen

“David Lebovitz is the greatest thing to happen to dessert since the spoon, but this time he shows that beyond his artful nose and flawless taste, he also has a keen reporter’s eye. If Paris intrigues, excites, or merely interests you, read this book.” —Mort Rosenblum, author of The Secret Life of the Seine, A Goose in Toulouse, Olives, and Chocolate: A Bittersweet Story of Dark and Light

“Cooks aren’t usually such good writers—so funny, skeptical, and observant. He’s a wonderful one. Also, I’m a fervent fan of his ice-cream book, so I can’t wait to cook my way through his other recipes.”
—Diane Johnson, author of Le Divorce

Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Da ich vor kurzem selbst in Paris war und auch gerne koche (vor allem natürlich Süßspeisen), schien das Buch geradezu ideal für mich zu sein.

David Lebowitz, ein Amerikaner, der sich von San Francisco aus in der Gastronomie einen Namen machte, und schon einige Bücher geschrieben hatte, beschloss nach dem Tod seines Lebensgefährten sein Leben ganz neu zu ordnen. Er entschloss sich, nach Paris zu gehen, da ihn diese Stadt immer schon fasziniert hatte - außerdem ist Paris ja schließlich die Hauptstadt der Schokolade, oder nicht?
Schon von den USA aus mietet er sich eine kleine Wohnung unter dem Dach und der Leser begleitet ihn dabei, wie er nach und nach die Stadt für sich entdeckt. Jedes Kapitel ist einem bestimmten Thema gewidmet (Schokolade, Verkäufer in Paris, Wohnen in Paris, Besuch einer Sprachschule, Kleidungsticks der Pariser, sprachliche Eigenarten etc...) In wirklich sehr witzigen, pointierten und klugen Darstellungen gelingt es ihm, das Typische an Paris herauszuarbeiten, es immer dem Amerikanischen gegenüberzustellen und so genug Pointen zu setzen.
Großen Raum nimmt natürlich das Essen und Kochen ein, schrieb er doch relativ bald nach seinem Umzug ein Buch über Eiscremes. Wie ihm das in der kleinen Küche gelang und wie er lernte, auch den kleinsten Raum auszunützen, das ist schon wirklich unterhaltsam und witzig.
Zu jedem Kapitel gehören dann 1-3 Rezepte. Ich habe noch keines davon ausprobiert, doch es sind so Basisdinge wie "Mousse au chocolat" oder "Kir" dabei, eben typisch Französisches. Das einzige Manko hier, deshalb auch einen Punkt Abzug: das eine oder andere Foto wäre sicher sehr hilfreich gewesen!

Kenne Paris und die Pariser, kann deshalb einige der Beobachtungen bestätigen, sind aber sehr witzig beschrieben. Tolle Rezepte, aber deutliche Berücksichtigung des amerikanischen Geschmacks.

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Pros:

+ Funny stories from David's life in Paris.
+ Excellent recipes. The recipes are bullet-proof even for newbies. Just do it exactly how it's written and it will turn out perfect. I made the cheesecake 3 times and every time it turned out successful. I had less success with other cheesecake recipes I tried.

but... because there's always a but...

Cons:
- The book is in black and white.
- The paper's quality is bad.
- No pictures of any of the recipes. No images of the preparation method, none of the finished product. I have several other cooking books with pictures, which help me see how it should look like when it's done and also an example of how to serve it to my guests.
- The pages are badly cut. I ordered my first copy which had a problem with the pages not being of the same size. I returned it to Amazon without any problems and they sent me a new copy, which had the same issue too.

5+ stars for the recipes but -1 because of the cons mentioned above.

Deliciously Witty & Acerbic 10. Mai 2009
Von Darby - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I absolutely adore David Lebovitz. I took a couple cooking classes from him several years ago and am a fan for life. His recipes are the absolute best plus he is smart and hilarious. So I had to have his book which shares incidents from his life since his move to Paris. It's a quick fun read that will ring true to anyone who's spent time there. David spares no one, from the French men in their religion revealing bathing suits to the American tourists in their fanny packs and plastic flip flops. David shares incidents which will have you laughing and glad you live in the U.S. yet earning for the unique charm and culinary delights of Paris. The book is filled with Parisian shopkeepers who would rather smoke outside or text their friends than sell you cheese that you are unworthy of; the mindless buracuracy needed to return an item that broke with its first use; and the endless strikes that usually start right outside his apartment. While David can be acerbic and slightly misanthropic, he's always endearing. Of course, the recipes look amazing and I can hardly wait to try them.

Well worth a read for those interested in Paris, or Lebowitz 9. Februar 2012
Von Portland Book Baron - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I picked this up, as I expect most of those who have read it, because David Lebowitz's amazing dessert cookbooks. The picture of the marjolaine on the cover of Room for Dessert is enough for me to start reading anything.

This is Lebowitz's only non-cookbook and it's quite interesting. After the death of his partner, he decided to start his life anew and move to Paris. The majority of the book focuses on a menagerie of trials and tribulations that he has had over the last six years adapting to a new life, and new culture. I think at times, we all have fantasized about picking up and moving to another country. Lebowitz points out many things that we don't consider during these day dreams, like the difficulty of getting peanut butter or adapting to much smaller living spaces.

The book is only 304 pages, and many of those are recipes. Each chapter ranges from 3 to 10 pages, making it the perfect book to read on the beach, or a rainy weekend while fantasizing about being on a beach. It would be a horrible book to read while you are on a diet. Lebowitz is a consummate blogger, has experience as a pastry chef at Chez Panisse, and has written several cookbooks so he knows how to write about food in a way that makes you want to eat whatever he is talking about. His descriptions of the cheeses of France had me pricing plane tickets to Charles de Gaulle airport.

There were a few things I did not care for. The writing is not outstanding, and I felt like he focused on the difficulties of moving to Paris more than the wonderful things. I also wish that the recipes at the end of the chapter had been more relevant to the content of the chapter. I would strongly suggest reading this with a computer nearby so you can translate some of the French. There were several times where I understood the gist of what he was saying in context, but I really wanted to know what the actual words meant.

Overall, if you are interested in Paris, or just a fan of Lebowitz, this is worth a read. It is certainly not a large time commitment, and with lots of short chapters, there is bound to be a few anecdotes that you will enjoy. Note: My favorite was the one about his difficulties learning the language.

Waou, bébé! 16. Mai 2009
Von SuzieM13 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I could not wait for this book to arrive in the mail and it exceeded all my expectations. Not only is it hysterically written, it is chock full of recipes I can't wait to try. Written from an American's point of view who adores living in France (making a gutsy, change-of-life, crazy, impulsive decision to pull up stakes in the US and cross the pond in search of adventure) and who also hits the nail on the head about the idiosyncrasies of the French as well as the many unusual cultural differences. Recommended for foodies, especially those who've travelled in Paris or who want to travel there. A+++++ from someone who's been to Paris more than 50 times and who learned a ton of stuff from Daveed. :D

This souffle fails to rise 30. August 2010
Von M. Feldman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Okay, let's get the subject of the many recipes that appear in "The Sweet Life in Paris" out of the way first. These recipes look great, although I haven't made any of them yet. David Lebovitz is a well-known pastry chef, and when he's talking about food he's on his own turf and his writer's voice is opinionated and sharp. No problem there. His list of chocolatiers and other shops is welcome, too.

It's the non-recipe part of the book I had a problem with. Here, Lebovitz could have really used a good editor, since his short vignettes about life in Paris read like a blog, not a book. What is good for one is not good for the other. Blog entries are short and often read by people new to the web site. It's okay, in other words, to start in the middle (if you're the reader) or repeat yourself (if you're the writer). In a book, however, the recurrence of observations (fanny-pack wearing loud Americans, pushy Parisians, haughty shop personnel, and so on) gets pretty old after a while, particularly since Lebovitz is hardly the first person to write about them. The placement of recipes is also odd; often they are just stuck in at the end of a section, for no particular reason that's evident. Oh for a Laurie Colwin, who built her food essays so beautifully around a particular recipe or two. And David Sedaris, when he writes about his life in France, is a whole lot funnier.

While the recipes may be first rate, there are better books about an American in Paris. There's Julia Child's great "My Life In France," of course, but for something more contemporary there's Adam Gopnik's "Paris to the Moon," which never repeats itself and which opens up aspects of French life that are just plain fascinating. Lebovitz recycles the obvious stuff; Gopnik takes you where you never thought to go in the first place. There are reasons why so many people (including me) love Paris, but "The Sweet Life in Paris" is more likely to make you reach for your whisk and bowls than to make you book a plane ticket.

Terrific read - perfect for this summer! 11. Mai 2009
Von A reader - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Great book, done in the witty, entertaining, and informative style that is the trademark of DL's popular blog (of which I am a regular reader). If you are looking for great summer reading, look no further. This book really is perfect for the beach, travel, or anywhere, really. I am glad to say that when I met David a few months back at a "meet up" here in NYC, he was as warm and personable as his writing indicates. Hopefully I will one day make it to Paris, and be a *little bit* smarter having read his work. Definitely recommend.
