Hi there!

I’ve been writing my newsletter since circa 2005.

A quick intro to me: I’ve been a professional cook and pastry chef most of my life, and I wrote one of the very first food blogs, which I started in 1999. I’ve written nine books, including two memoirs about my life in Paris (The Sweet Life in Paris and L’Appart) as well as cookbooks on everything from baking and cooking in Paris, to chocolate and ice cream. My latest book, Drinking French, is filled with stories and 160 recipes for the iconic café drinks, cocktails, apéritifs, homemade liqueurs, and appetizer snacks of France.

My newsletters:

There are two versions of my newsletter:

One is free and comes out on the first of the month. Free subscribers will get some additional newsletters, podcasts, and recipes throughout the month.

Paid subscribers get all the recipes, as well as personal Paris stories, all of the recipes, Paris restaurant and bakery tips, interviews with friends in the culinary world, as well as podcasts and the ability to join in the community of commenters.

My newsletter is one of the top featured publications on Substack for 2024.
