Today I’m talking with Lisa Baker Morgan, attorney turned chef and author. After leaving her litigation practice to focus on her daughters, Lisa found a new, more fulfilling way to live life. In her book, “Paris, Part Time,” Lisa shares how at the age of 38, and newly divorced, she unexpectedly found herself staring down death in a Monaco hospital, nine time zones away from her two young daughters in Los Angeles. After facing mortality and surviving, her life took on a sense of urgency to experience and accomplish all of the things she had ever wanted for herself and her daughters. Top of her list: a life-long desire to live in Paris. The seemingly indulgent and even "crazy" aspiration was part of a journey that set her on the path of recovery of health and of spirit. During the interview, Lisa shared her adventurous evolution of self-creation and determination to overcome obstacles. Her story is one of strength, resilience, and courage. Relatable in sentiment, heart-felt, and humorous, her book bounds with the optimism of infinite possibility and gratitude for life itself. In Paris, Part Time and online, Lisa shares recipes and loads of photographs from her travels. I can’t wait for you to hear this story.
