OUR GUIDE TO FOOD AND DRINKS IN PARIS
Long considered the culinary capital of the world, plan on arriving in Paris on an empty stomach – you won’t be hungry for long. From pretty patisseries offering decadent candy-colored macarons to market stalls selling crusty French baguettes and delectable gourmet cheeses, a trip to Paris is a vacation for your taste buds.
Starting with dessert first, the aromas wafting from all the gourmet patisseries and chocolate shops dotting the streets of the French capital are enough to make your mouth water. Macarons are a specialty in Paris, but hardly your only choice when it comes to pastries. Parisians also make lovely fruit tarts and mousse cakes. Of course, you can also never go wrong with an éclair – and there are so many to choose from!
Beyond tours and tasting sessions, another way to get acquainted with French cuisine is by grabbing a table at an authentic Parisian café or restaurant serving French onion soup, coq au vin and other French favorites. Explore the side streets of the Marais or St. Germain-des-Prés for eateries with the best ambiance or indulge in a combined dining and entertainment experience.
Regardless of whether you prefer sweet or savory, wine or champagne, one thing is for sure – you won’t leave Paris hungry.
Famous for its richness and complexity as well as its rustic simplicity, French cuisine is such a treasured part of French culture that UNESCO declared it a “world intangible heritage.” For visitors to the Paris, getting in touch with this tradition is as easy as popping into a local boulangerie early in the morning or dining at a tiny bistro in a tucked away side road.
Whether you are an avid cook or have trouble boiling water, it’s hard not be inspired to whip something up yourself as you stroll past brasseries, fragrant patisseries and cafés. Try your hand at putting together your own Parisian picnic using ingredients gathered from Rue Cler Street Market, an idyllic cobbled road lined with magnificent bakeries, butcher, cheese and wine shops.
For a more in-depth look at French cooking, it’s hard to beat a cooking class. Taught by chefs and longtime Parisian residents, there is something about cooking with locally sourced ingredients that puts you in touch with the Parisian culture in a unique way. And not only will you leave with your very own delicious samples, but you’ll also come away with new skills to wow family and friends at home.
