All week long David Lebovitz -- professional cook, baker, and blogger -- has been sharing recipes from his new book, My Paris Kitchen. It's the last day to win one of six copies we're giving away -- 

Today: We're not ready to say au revoir to the week of food from the city of lights. So we're looking back at the French recipes David has been sharing all week.

This week, David Lebovitz transported us to Paris with recipes from his new cookbook, My Paris Kitchen: Recipes and StoriesHe showed us how to make a bistro classic at home -- and the proper, Parisian way to arrange our market vegetables (très chic, indeed). And, though the French rarely over-indulge, David admitted that it's nearly impossible for his favorite chicken recipe to yield more than one serving when he's around. The pièce de résistance? Individual chocolate cakes that look so good, we're looking for flights to France as we speak. We wish there were more recipes on their way to Food52 -- but, as they say, we'll always have Paris (and David's kitchen).
