diane-johnsonI can’t claim to have tried Adrian’s recommendations in all the quartiers, but regarding mine — the 6th arrondissment — and others nearby, she’s straight on, with (unlike some cheap eats guides) a high standard and reliable palate.”
Diane Johnson. Author, “Le Divorce”


david andelman“For two decades, Adrian Leeds has prowled the grandest of the grands boulevards, the most intimate of the tiny impasses of Paris, eating her way through the entire range of French gastronomy. Now, she’s given us her intimate guide to 100 favorite finds, not to mention her dos and don’ts of how best to enjoy them, along with a valuable glossary to help even novice would-be Francophiles navigate their way through the thickets of a Parisian menu. A must-read, must-carry guide to all that is just so wonderful about dining out in Paris.” –

Just reading the introduction to her dining guide puts me right back into the heart of that city I love, into the warm bustle of a favorite bistro, ready to savor a delicious meal and a glass of wine. She’s such a good and generous guide to all that’s best in Paris; I would go just about anywhere she leads.”

France always makes sense. It is one of the most beautiful countries in the world, immersed in culture and tradition. The trickiest thing about France will be deciding which part of it holds the most allure for you. It could be the wild, rocky shores of Celtic Brittany, steeped in heritage and tradition…or sun-drenched Provence, with its rolling hills and lavender fields, broken by the turquoise sea of the Côte d’Azur…or the castles and sleepy villages of medieval holdings in the Dordogne… France has all the ingredients that we at International Living look for: a good climate, unspoiled countryside, top-notch culture, excellent health care, affordable real estate (despite the strength of the euro, France can still has lots of cheap property), colorful traditions and history, and, of course, the glitter and sophistication of Paris. It’s not surprising that France is the world’s
favorite destination, receiving in excess of 82 million overseas visitors each year. France: The Owner’s Manual will provide you with all the information you will need to turn your dreams of moving overseas into reality.
