French Milk by Lucy Knisley

Lucy and her mother spent six weeks in Paris to celebrate their birthdays. She kept a journal filled with drawings of their time there. She describes and draws the food they ate and the art they saw. She also writes down her own musings about life, her relationship with her mom, and her boyfriend.

The book is called French Milk because she fell in love with the rich, unpasteurized milk in France.

I really liked this book. It was sweet and funny. And of course, it made me want to go back to Paris and eat loads of unpasteurized Camembert.

Thanks to Grace for the recommendation!

You're welcome! I also really liked A Year in Provence by Peter Mayle.
