Bonjour, Bagels! Bonjour Brioches!

I adore Terrance Gelenter's new book "From Bagels to Brioches."

It's chock full of wonderful stories that range from Hollywood to New York, from Brooklyn and to Paris where Terrance now lives in fabulous ex-pat bliss.  I was fortunate enough to meet up with Terrance in late September when he hosted an extravagant dinner with a group of international boho types at Astier.

 Oooh la la!  We heard about Terrance's days in Hollywood.  I particularly loved those insider stories about Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn.  Terrance is a natural raconteur and a delightful host.  No wonder his ex-pat tours are so wildly popular.  Just go to his website, you'll get so much information!
Oh, and if you want to stay in a studio (I did in the Menilmontant district and loved it) or find the best cafe or where to get a great massage, Parisian-style--Terrance is the man!
 And so handsome, too!  Bonjour, Terrance!

  1. Ex-pats and insider stories and sounds like a magical evening you spent. I'll put this book on my reading list!
