The Sweet Life in Paris

I enjoyed this one even though I'm not a Paris person.  There are lots of short chapters, all with amazing recipes that I can't make in Mexico because Mexico has no decent chocolate.  If you live in a place with chocolate, you should get this book and read the whole thing. Or even if you don't, like me, you can think about chocolate while you read it.

It's not just about food though, but about living in Paris.  Lebovitz does a good job describing that life.

It really just proves that travel writing is about the writing, not the travel.  Interesting destinations help, but traveling to some fantastic place doesn't mean you'll automatically write a decent book about.
