12 days of Christmas: Books, books, books!

A mélange of local friends and talent, an obsession with all things French, and my own Christmas wishes, here’s my daily pick for anyone lacking Christmas gift inspiration.

In my book (ba-dum-bum), books are always a great gift: giant coffeetable books, quirky trivia or design-y books, travel guides, classic novels, first editions, cookbooks or just the latest from your or your loved one’s favorite author.

Here in Paris, there a gazillian talented writers. Writers who are as passionate about food and eating as they are about travel and Paris. In addition to these Francophile titles, any one of these “love of food” books would be a divine gift.

Hungry for Paris by Alexander Lobrano
Kitchen Chinese by Ann Mah
Around My French Table by Dorie Greenspan
Lunch in Paris by Elizabeth Bard
Ready for Dessert by David Lebovitz
