Listen to Episode 82: A Chat With Amy Thomas
Also Available on iTunes
Today on Tea & Tattle, I'm in conversation with the American writer Amy Thomas, to discuss Amy's fabulous memoirs, Paris My Sweet and Brooklyn in Love. In her books, Amy describes her foodie adventures in NYC, Paris and Brooklyn, as she tracks down the best sweet treats on offer. From the tastiest chocolate chip cookies in town, to award-winning macarons and decadent pies, Amy shows just how fun giving in to your sweet tooth can be.
I filled a notebook with Amy's recommendations, but I also loved reading about Amy's life, as she shares anecdotes about her glamorous single lifestyle in Manhattan and Paris, before getting married and starting a family in Brooklyn. I absolutely adored both Amy’s books, and I’ve been pressing them on all my girlfriends to read too - they are perfect for summer reading!
On the podcast, Amy tells me about how she first started pursuing her writing career alongside her full-time work in an ad agency, the culture shock she experienced moving back from Paris to New York, and how she overcame her nerves about sharing personal stories from her life. This is a brilliant episode for anyone who loves food and travel, and it’s bound to inspire a little wanderlust!
