You would probably expect a post where we speak about Italy or our beautiful region, Abruzzo; but two foodies, who love wandering around in search of gastronomic experiences, couldn’t miss traveling Europe and tasting the many different food traditions we have across the continent.
One of the cities that have a special place in our hearts is…Paris!
This post is for all the foodies that, like us, have been at least once in this amazing city, and can’t help wanting to go back as soon as possible!
We’re very sorry: you won’t read about the Louvre, the Eiffel tower or the Arc de Triomphe, but about the amazing culinary experiences we had, just walking along the marvellous boulevards and rues de Paris!
Like the food shops, where you can experience the real French cuisine, like macarons for example…wouldn’t you buy them all?!
We couldn’t of course miss tasting cheese. France is well known for its incredibly tasty variety of cheese! What about a fantastic brie sandwich in one of the cutest bistrot in the city?
If it starts snowing and you want to get warm, nothing’s better than a good fondue or a perfect raclette! We had the best ones of our lives just behind Notre Dame Cathedral!
Or if you prefer, ask for an onion soup: delicious!
What’s the most traditional thing you can try in France? Escargots! First time in her life for Maple…and she admitted they weren’t bad at all!
When it’s December and almost time for Christmas, you can be so lucky to find a Christmas village near the Champs-Elysées! So much to taste: wood-smoked salmon sandwich, churros, crêpes, soups…an authentic mouth-watering experience!
If they ask you for one word that makes you think about Paris, would you ever say “mussels”? Probably not! We could never expect to find a chain of restaurants, Léon de Bruxelles, where you can find mussels cooked in so many different ways! We had les moules en cocotte!
Time to go…but we couldn’t leave before going to a must-visit for foodies: Galeries Lafayette! Spices, Nuts, tea, salt from all over the world…you need one week to visit and taste everything!
Ok, we have to admit this, we are crazy for sushi, so when we passed by a pretty Japanese restaurant, we couldn’t help going in…you’ll probably understand by the picture that we had a great dinner…Saffron’s best amazed face ever!
