An American in Paris falls in love with the food of France. It’s a story told again and again but it never gets old.
From the one who started it all (Julia Child, bien sûr) to more modern tales about journalists and bakers, every single one of these books deserves a spot on your bookshelf or in the kitchen pantry.
A chapter could just as easily inspire your next trip as it could your next meal. Warning: Do not read on an empty stomach!
