‘The Belly of Paris’


If you love food and have not read this book, I highly recommend it! It is so well written, the descriptions so vivid, that, at least for my part, I could not wait to get to my local farmer’s market.

Yes, it is about much more than food. Yes, “fat” and “thin” are metaphors for social standing and personal wealth. I get it.

Those facts notwithstanding, Zola is an incredible writer and this is a must read if you have ever gone to a farmers market or stood in front of rows of fresh produce and just smiled.
