Her latest book on the French, “Joie de Vivre: Secrets of Wining, Dining, and Romancing Like the French” was published in October 2012 by St. Martin’s Press. It was preceded by two light-hearted but informative books, French Toast and French Fried, also published by St. Martin’s Press.
A French-American dual citizen, Harriet lives with husband Philippe in the trendy east of Paris in a garden apartment with a tiny lawn just big enough to mow and a fig tree that has miraculously defied both Paris weather and pollution.
