David Lebovitz is an American who lives full time in Paris writing books and interesting and informative posts on his blog David Lebovitz living the sweet life in Paris. Prior to writing books and starting his blog, David worked in restaurants, the last thirteen at Chez Panisse in Berkeley, California, with Alice Waters and co-owner, Executive Pastry Chef Lindsey Shere, before he left the restaurant business in 1999.
David was named one of the Top Five Pastry Chefs in the Bay Area by the San Francisco Chronicle and has written six books and been featured in, Bon Appétit, Chocolatier, Cooking Light, Food+Wine, Cook’s Illustrated, The Los Angeles Times, Newsweek, Travel and Leisure, The New York Times, People, Saveur, Sunset, and USA Today.
David's post Food Gifts to Bring French People From America provides a long list of food items such as maple syrup, dried cherries and chocolate chips and kitchen items such as offset spatulas, rasp zesters and heavy duty aluminum foil. What do you think about his list and what would those of you who live in France add or subtract from it.
I look forward to your comments and to your ideas about what to add or subtract from David's list and in the meantime, I leave with you a couple of pictures Sara took with my mobile phone within minutes of each other last evening at Bodega Head.

Bodega Head is a small promontory on the Pacific coast of northern California a short distance from our Bistro Des Copains in Occidental. Bodega Head is considered a prime spot to observe the migration of grey whales. It is also one of the three points of the Red Triangle, a major feeding ground for great white sharks.
