My Keyboard for
a Cutting Board ~
Adventures in a French Kitchen v1.0
mes amis! Bonjour de Paris!
2-1/2 years ago I waved au revoir to Silicon Valley and
headed east to New York City to attend cooking school.
I was trading my keyboard for a cutting board and not
looking back. The goal was to then move to Tuscany, renovate
a farmhouse ¨¤ la Frances Mayes and open a cooking school.
Well here I am 2-1/2 years later, living not in an Italian farmhouse
but in a Parisian apartment and I have turned part of that adventure
into a book aptly named....
My Keyboard for
a Cutting Board ~ Adventures in a French Kitchen v1.0
I have wanted to share my culinary journey, my life transition
from a cube in Silicon Valley to cooking school in New York
to the kitchens of France, now I finally can! My
Keyboard for a Cutting Board ~ Adventures in a French Kitchen
v1.0 is the first "version" of what I hope
is many exciting adventures to come.
It begins as I wash ashore on the Cote d'Azur to cook at the
Cannes Film Festival and includes vibrant color pictures, like
those gorgeous strawberries on the cover, and easy recipes to
whet your appetite.
If it weren't for American expat and author Kristin
Espinasse and her inspiration, encouragement and
guidance, I never would have done this. Thank you for the kick
in the derri¨¨re and for placing the first pre-order! And speaking
of pre-orders.... ;-)

de ma petite fen¨ºtre ¨¤ Paris! xo Laura
