Gourmet Shops of Paris by Pierre Rival

Book Description

Paris, the food-lover's capital, is adept at satisfying the most discerning gourmand. Gourmet Shops of Paris offers a unique guide to the best addresses for savoring the flavors of Paris, where sampling reigns supreme. Beautiful shops and boutiques offer delectable pastry and tarts, chocolate and candy, wine, bread, and cheese, olive oil, tea, and soup: the finest products from France's many celebrated regions and across the globe. The authors traversed the streets of the capital to bring together this mix of traditional and exotic flavors, organic and fusion trends that embody Parisian delicacies - both sweet and savory. Sarramon's photographs present a feast for both eyes and stomach: from the Cakes de Bertrand, served in a romantic old-world interior, to the Maison des 3 Thes, with its expensive teas and lavish decor. The shops, often created by a great chef or famous name in French gastronomy, may include a "take-out" counter of catered fare for a no-fuss feast at home. From the most traditional establishments to the hottest new addresses, and revealing the city's best-kept secrets, an indispensable address book completes the selection to provide the epicurean visitor with satisfaction in every quarter of the capital. Rich with ideas for eating well, Gourmet Shops of Paris is the ultimate indulgence!
