Elizabeth Bard is an American journalist who happened to fall in love with a frenchman and his cuisine. In her memoir, Lunch in Paris, A Love Story with Recipes, Elizabeth shares her love and culinary journey by interspersing recipes among and as her memories. What more can I ask for - another posterchild for Heirloom Meals. She is the essence of my tagline: Savoring Yesterday's Traditions Today where she holds onto a key link to her past with her Mom's, Dad's, grandmother's, and Aunt's recipes with a nod to the future as she becomes immersed in french cooking and culture. And in particular through her french husband's concotions and his family's recipes. An absolute treasure of a book and fantastic interview!! Thank you Elizabeth.
