Study Up For Think: Taking Paris To The Table [VIDEO]

Ex-patriate writer John Baxter ate a roast ox while sleuthing the traditional French banquet.

John Baxter takes his Parisian appreciation to another level in The Perfect Meal: In Search of the Lost Tastes of France. Visit Baxter at his apartment foregrounding the spires of Notre Dame before he’s on Think today at 1 p.m.

“You don’t want a guidebook, what you want is a guide to yourself,” Baxter tells journalist Terrance Gelenter an interview about how his life as an ex-pat writer has changed him.
