With self-deprecating humor, world renowned chef and writer David Lebovitz writes about his experience of moving to Paris where he decides to buy an apartment to renovate for his home as an expat.  Lebovitz weaves together the process of establishing his identity in a culture different process of establishing his identity in a culture difference from what he knows.  He struggles to master the technical French vocabulary for hardware, tubs, and sinks.  He connects the transformation of his residence with the process of baking and cooking.  Witty delightful read.
