TOAST x David Lebovitz



Talk + Aperitif + Snacks

Ten years ago, David Lebovitz packed up his most treasured cookbooks, a well-worn cast-iron skillet, and his laptop and moved to Paris. He’s since chronicled his adventures, struggles and successes in his well-known blog (

In contrast to the romanticised view of Paris – all berets, baguettes and brie – David takes the good, the bad, and the perplexing in his stride, reflecting on every aspect of the city, as well as the way modern Parisians eat.

His new book, My Paris Kitchen, tells a new story of the city, one that goes far beyond the stereotype. Bringing this story to life in a special one-off event for TOAST, David will speak to Fiona Beckett about his gastronomic discoveries in Paris, revealing the quirks, trials, beauty and joys of this culinary capital.

And because David’s favourite time of day is l’heure de l’apero, we’ll be serving Kamm & Sons aperitifs alongside a spread of dishes from the book, cooked by some of our favourite writers and bloggers. As well as plenty of cheese and charcuterie, of course.

A bientôt!

Ticket includes the talk, plenty of cheese and nibbles, a Kamms Bitter Lemon cocktail and £5 off My Paris Kitchen.
