Shop, cook and eat in a Parisian neighborhood, continued
oh no--Madame Paule takes us outdoors on an expanded walking tour. An assistant will arrive to clean up the dishes.
We visit a long established wine shop, and Dehillerin , Paris’ landmark kitchen emporium, its dark, cramped interior unchanged since the last century.
Because it’s Saturday, it’s as crowded with Parisians as it is with every imaginable cooking implement.
Eyeing a pot that’s easily two feet in diameter, I wonder how you’d get that home on an airplane.
It’s been an unforgettable day in Paris, combining the pleasures of strolling the markets, choosing ingredients, preparing an authentic French meal and savoring the delicious result.
In the 1920s Ernest Hemingway wrote, “Paris is a moveable Feast.”
So could be described Les Promenades Gourmandes.
