Lunch in Paris : a love story, with recipes / by Bard, Elizabeth,

Publication: New York : Little, Brown and Co., 2010 . vii, 324 p. ; 22 cm. Date: 2010

This was a good view of what happens when two people from different cultures meet and fall in love, making the decision to move in and then marry. An American Jewish girl meets French boy for lunch in Paris and ends up staying . Romance and recipes, American can do and why not up against French negativism ie no is the first answer to most things. The loneliness of being in a city where no one speaks your language and you are trying to learn theirs. It is a reality check but food is a great way to bind people together and love conquers all.
