To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I gave this book as a gift to my cousin who lives in Paris and is a foodie. It has an interesting history and story of food in Paris but is no real guide book and too bulky to carry with you on a trip to Paris. It would be good to have on the coffee table to read, or to read before a trip to Paris in order to get an understanding of the cuisine.
Just got it and love it, but what happened on p41? Talking about Japanese chefs and the page just ends. I would have been interested in reading the rest of that section, but seems like it was just edited out. Oh well.
I enjoyed using this book to find some great new places to try in Paris. I also enjoyed reading about the new food movement and some of the new chefs, coffee roasters, and organic vegetable places. If you are into food and spend time in Paris then I would recommend this book as it makes it fun to go out and track down some of these new places for coffee, drinks or really good fresh food. My favorite restaurant I tried from the book so far is Clamato but I look forward to trying more places on our next trip. Wish I bought the paper version rather than the kindle though so that I could keep all my notes about the different places in the book itself.
