Nice profile (click here) in the Washington Post about blogger/author/ex-pat David Leibovitz and the reality of his sometimes not so sweet life in Paris. I love his blog, which always seems to make me crave something dessert-ish. Appropriate I guess, seeing that he is an ex-pastry chef at Chez Panisse and he spends his new-ish life in Paris writing of his cooking and eating adventures in and around that most beautiful of cities (and the world). I also l0ve that pic at left from the article of David in his Parisian kitchen. His blog, fittingly titled "Living the Sweet Life in Paris" is absolutely worth the bookmark. And he hasn't totally bought into life in Paris, maintaining a slightly jaded eye, as evidenced by this excerpt from the article:
"Show him a tourist blinded by the City of Light, and he'll show you someone who needs to be set straight. The city is so clean, they say. But you almost stepped in dog doo, he'll say. The cafe culture is so rich, they say. But the coffee itself is horrific, he'll say."
