Paris Hearts Time-Lapse

Here’s a short trip to Paris for those not able to be there today.

The Work Conundrum

  Labor has been in the news quite a bit these days in France, with the Air France pilot’s strike giving the strikers what they wanted. The damage done to the tourism industry is incalculable; not only did many people have their vacations ruined by the huge cancellation of flights, but future visits will undoubtedly […]

Do the Twizy

Have you seen the little electric two-passenger cars zooming around Paris? The Twizy is almost like riding a motorcycle with four wheels and a bit of extra protection around you. But not much more! But they’re small and easy to park (sometimes right up on the sidewalk), and now you can rent them from the […]

Saturday Silliness

Why do the French make omelettes with just one egg? Because one egg is un oeuf.

Where There Is Will…

William Pradeleix, the chef, loves combining French traditional flavors with more exotic ones. Our meal at Will was a true ode to fusion food and an original on the Paris dining scene. We started off with a reinvention of the classic French tartare, seasoned with sesame seeds, white truffle and green mango. The sesame added […]

A Gourmet Holiday Tradition

Nearly 30 of France’s top pastry chefs and 26 Bûches de Noël make for one indulgent afternoon well spent. As an insatiable gourmande, I jump at the chance to meet and speak with pastry chefs so you can imagine my excitement when the country’s top talents are together in one room. My blogging pal Carol Gillott […]

Bit o’Britain

The return to Paris of the British store Marks & Spencer has been so successful (food and clothing shops on the Champs Elysées and the Beaugrenelle Commercial Center in the 15th), that now they are rolling out a bunch of food-only convenience shops, M&S Food, currently at 35 blvd St-Michel in the 5th, 6 rue […]

Photo Show Opens This Week

by Meredith Mullins It has been fun to plan “Paris and Beyond” with my friend Richard Nahem. We have both been settled in Paris for eight years, and we both live to explore . . . and see things that have not been seen before. The exhibit opens this Thursday, September 25, at Le Galerie 102. Our […]

For Plus-Size Parisiennes

Maybe French women don’t get “fat” but they do get “ronde.” One of the best clothing brands for women shopping for size 42-60 (US sizes 12-28) is Jean Marc Philippe, a French brand with three stores in Paris (including 89 rue de Rivoli, 1st). The clothing is mostly made in France, with some items made in […]

A New Neo-Bistro in the 10th

Porte 12, a new 32-seat neo-bistrot in the 10th arrondissement, is just a few blocks over from other standouts in the restaurant category – Albion, Abri, Le Richer and L’Office. Chef Vincent Crepel presides over the narrow open kitchen where he inventively plays up seasonal produce in a style greatly informed both by his travels […]
