David Lebovitz on French drinks

This week on the podcast it’s David Lebovitz, a pastry chef turned blogging legend turned cookbook author extraordinaire.

Just when you think this guy can’t have any more strings to his bow, he releases an excellent book all about French Drinks.

And it’s not just a cocktail book, no sir. This is a book about lots of different French drinks including coffee, hot chocolate, teas, mint syrups, aperitifs and more.

And as usual, the book includes David’s signature observations on the French and their culture.

In this podcast episode, we talked all about the book, the hottest cocktails in Paris right now, and the 11th arrondissement of Paris.

Listen to our chat here.

You can find David’s book here. It’s called Drinking French: The Iconic Cocktails, Apéritifs, and Café Traditions of France, with 160 Recipes.

After David’s chat on the podcast, you’ll hear tour guide Bertrand from My Private Paris talking about the courtyards of the eleventh district, how to walk into them, and what you might find. 

My Private Paris is the boutique tour agency sponsoring this podcast season. Find out more about My Private Paris here (and tell them I sent you!)

If you want to find more about The Earful Tower, here’s the website, here’s the Patreon link, and here’s my Instagram. Get a copy of my new book here.

Note: I will be taking a temporary break from the current “arrondissement” season of The Earful Tower. Paris is going through extraordinary measures right now due to the coronavirus and I’ll be focusing the new episodes on that until further notice.

One thought on “David Lebovitz on French drinks

  1. Loved listening to this as I walked the eerily quiet neighborhood in our new lockdowned San Jose! People probably wondered why I was smiling and laughing – very amusing episode! I must get David’s new book, now! And I’m definitely going to make myself a Boulevardier! I also laughed when you mentioned people recognizing you in public. As a former teacher, I am often met with students recognizing me from years ago and asking if I remember them! Not anywhere near star status, but I am complimented that they remember me!
