Paris, My Sweet

Friday, February 17, 2012 2 No tags Permalink 0

First off…a huge congrats to Amy who just published her first book, Paris, My Sweet: A Year in the City of Light (and Dark Chocolate). We celebrated with a launch party at Bosie Tea Parlor yesterday…endless champagne and a rainbow of macarons. Can’t go wrong with a combination like that.

The story starts in Manhattan, the East Village to be exact. Then it quickly transports us to the 2nd arrondissement of Paris when Amy lands a job writing ad copy for Louis Vuitton. Perfect life? Sounds like it! I read it all in one night…it’s one of those make-you-smile-inside books. The dreamy shatter of croissants, macarons, and chocolate chip cookies. Lady M, Ladurée, City Bakery, Pierre Hermé, it’s all here. And feels extra special if you’ve been (or are planning to visit!) both cities.

Thought these illustrations were so cute…NYC on the inside of the front cover, and Paris on the back. Organization by dessert, now this is what I call a proper map!

It’s also a useful guide to Amy’s favorite sweet spots in NYC and Paris ;) Jotting down notes for our next trip back, fingers crossed for Paris in the springtime.
