See David Lebovitz's Paris kitchen

David Lebovitz

Pastry chef turned food blogger David Lebovitz remains one of the most popular authors in the EYB Library, thanks to his recent hit My Paris Kitchen. Now he is letting readers into that very kitchen in an interview with The New York Times.

While his previous kitchen was small and cramped, like most big city kitchens, this newer space in the 11th Arrondissement is open and light filled. In addition to a slideshow of kitchen photographs, Lebovitz answered several questions about his workspace. Colorful LeCreuset gratin dishes and pots decorate the space, as does another collection: "moka express" pots by the Italian company Bialetti. "They're low-tech," he says. "They're very well made. I like having them around."

One of the reasons Lebovitz wanted a larger kitchen is to accommodate his cookbook collection. He elaborates on how cramped his old space was, saying "Friends would publish cookbooks and say, "I want to send you one." I'd say, "There's no room." They were like, "It's just a cookbook." "No, you don't understand." I wanted space to keep cookbooks on, paper to take notes." Although he has many cookbooks, a cherished collection of books that he had shipped from the States when he moved to Paris was lost en route. Lebovitz was heartbroken over the loss. Lucky for us it didn't dampen his enthusiam for cooking.

    So envious of his kitchen! I love that light-filled wall, and I can only dream of having that many cupboards ...
