Advance Praise for Bonjour Kale
“With colorful descriptions of travel and the conversational tone of a best friend, Beddard’s story is full and satisfying.”
“As someone who roamed the streets and markets of Paris in search of the elusive kale, I (and many others) have Kristen to thank for revolutionizing the city for légume-lovers. Bonjour Kale is a charming tale of how she found her place in Paris, becoming a tireless advocate for the leafy green that we all now know, and love…in abundance!”
—David Lebovitz, author of My Paris Kitchen
“Every time I spot a crate of kale in a store near me, I whisper a prayer of thanks to Kristen, patron saint of leafy greens in Paris. Beyond the culinary gratitude, hers is an inspiring tale of finding an identity and a purpose in a foreign city—one you are bound to relate to if you’ve ever sought a home away from home.”
—Clotilde Dusoulier, author of Chocolate & Zucchini
“A triumphant story of finding love, moving to Paris, and overcoming that one little French word: ‘impossible.’ Kristen’s tenacity on the trail to bringing kale to Paris is deliciously inspiring.”
—Amy Thomas, author of Paris, My Sweet: A Year in the City of Light (and Dark Chocolate)
“Of the great kale heroes, none rival kale crusader Kristen Beddard. Beyond the kale, read this book for the inspiring tale of love, Paris, and how the tenacity of one woman changed French food.”
—Drew Ramsey, MD, author of Eat Complete and 50 Shades of Kale and co-founder of National Kale Day
“Kristen Beddard’s approachable voice is filled with passion and heart in a tale that goes well beyond that signature leafy green. Bonjour Kale has it all: love, loss, and hope, with wonderful recipes to extend the experience at home.”
—Lindsey Tramuta, journalist and creator of Lost in Cheeseland
“Bonjour Kale is an endearing love letter to leafy greens as well as the story of a dedicated woman bravely making a home for herself in Paris. Kale lovers, francophiles, and adventurous souls will enjoy following Kristen as she introduces kale to Paris and encounters both heartbreaking and hilarious obstacles along the way.”
—Emily Dilling, author of My Paris Market Cookbook
“Bonjour Kale made me nostalgic for life in Paris, with all its elegance and eccentricity. With warmth and wit, Kristen Beddard has written a charming story of perseverance and fresh produce!”
—Ann Mah, author of Mastering the Art of French Eating
