Foodies and Francophiles alike will delight in Craig Carlson’s rollicking tale of moving to the culinary capital of the world, opening the first American diner in France, and finding true love along the way. An entrepreneurial success story, Craig shares his experience from raising start-up funds for his first Breakfast in America restaurant in 2003 to having three locations in the City of Light. A book sale and signing follows.
