I recently celebrated my 7-year Parisversaire! Yes, that is 7 years of morning boulangerie runs, nauseating boughts of cultural differences, and a bookshelf unapologetically filled with administrative proof that I do indeed live in this enchanted city of Paris, France. As much as I try to steer away from the Pretty Postcard Paris that is so much better captured by my blogging compatriots, I recently found myself in a giddy state when I saw there was a Ladurée in Megève where I am currently vacationing. Twice removed, Ladurée here has all the charm and appeal it did when I was just a young American navigating the cold cobblestoned streets of Paris. It was no little blue box, but the little green bag worked just as well. Scraping together a few hard-earned euro pieces promises a few glorious macarons and a few moments of pure pleasure. Yes, I am a tourist at heart.
I have been camping out in my work cave as of late. But I have a good reason. I am thrilled to announce my forthcoming book Edible Paradise from Rizzoli New York‘s Universe imprint! It’s a fully ripened coloring book of seasonal fruits and vegetables ready to be attacked with sharpened colored pencils. Edible Paradise will delight any curious foodie, green-thumbed enthusiast, broccoli-phobic child or anyone in need of unplugging and reconnecting with the edible plant world.
In the meantime, savor all the summer fruit and veg you can eat!
I begrudgingly checked my email after hitting the snooze button 8 times on a recent Monday morning. And it was a commission from The High Priestess of Style with a capital S, Vogue.com. Can you please take a look to confirm this is real?
