I got this book as an ARC from NetGalley. I was initially very excited about it. I love Paris and I love cooking and I love cookbooks. This book started out strong but got very annoying very quickly. I don’t speak French and I was incredibly frustrated by the inconsistent translations provided. Sometimes he would translate the French he was using. And sometimes he wouldn’t. And there was no rhyme or reason I could see to this inconsistency. I did really enjoy the anecdotes that accompanied each recipe. Overall it’s not a terrible book but just be prepared to not understand parts of it.
