The Sharper Your Knife, the Less You Cry

• 24 March 2009





















My friend Sara sent me a package out-of-the-blue (talk about making my week!) and included this little book for my reading pleasure. The book details a woman's move from corporate life in the States (and UK), to student life in Paris--at Le Cordon Bleu nonetheless.

I found it very interesting as I've always been fascinated with the idea of cooking school, especially at Le Cordon Bleu. If you've ever been curious yourself, you should add it to your reading list. She includes many delicious-looking recipes and includes a bit of romance as well. I appreciated the way the book was organized in a way that allowed me to take in small doses of her experience (all my mommy-of-3 lifestyle allows these days) in an enjoyable way.

Jane from This Week For Dinner read this awhile ago and loved it. I've been thinking about it ever since.
