We decided to spend some time in Paris. To support the city and to breathe the air of Paris again after five years of living in the States! We walked, we ate, we walked, we ate some more, we shopped, we ate, and we fully enjoyed the city. Of course we visited some of the addresses Yvette van Boven, a well-known cookbook author, shared with us on our blog, but we also discovered some new ones. At the best shops we bought a souvenir.
Picture 1 from upper left clockwise:
Copper sauce pan lined with tin acquired at E. Dehillerin (where else?); I found the Carnet de Notes at the beautiful little vintage store Au Grand Magazine (11, Rue Jean Macé, 11th), where they sell very nice vintage kitchen and school supplies; not far from here you’ll find La Pâtisserie Cyril Lignac where you can buy delicious pots of crème de marron (chestnut spread); I purchased the cute little notebook with the Eiffel Tower at the most luxurious department store in Paris, Le Bon Marché, where you múst visit La Grand Epicerie as well, the French cookbook La Cuisine Juive was of course a purchase from the cookbook store Librarie Gourmande.
Picture 2 from upper left clockwise:
These cute little tins of sardines I found at the old fashioned and tiny food store G. Detou (pronounced as ‘j’ai de tout’ which means ‘I have everything’ (58 rue Tiquetonne, 2nd)); I have a weakness for enamelware, so when I saw these baking dishes at Merci, such a perfect store!, I just had to buy them; little tart, pickled French gherkins, cornichons, make for a perfect present, these come from Maison Plisson, a beautiful epicerie annex restaurant; our daughters bought the cookie cutter with removable letters from their pocket money at Le Bon Marché; the magazine Fooding with cool addresses for the best restaurants in Paris can be found in every kiosk or bookstore.
For your convenience we added a map. Just click on the numbers or scroll down. Enjoy Paris!
