Paris: Fauchon

Fauchon macaroons
On our second day in Paris we rode the Métro to Place de Madeleine to eat at a restaurant recommended by my cousin who was just in Paris a week before us. We went there early to walk around the area. To my delight there were 3 shops within minutes of each other that were a foodie’s paradise.

The first store we went in the world famous Fauchon, a purveyor of French gourmet food.

If we weren’t about to eat lunch I would have bought a pastry or two. These two below were my top picks.

If you’re planning to have a picnic in Paris everything you would need is available in this store.

They had ready to eat meals and salads.

This salad made with haricot verts (French green beans), mozzarella, almonds and raspberries are a very unusual combination that I would like to try to make.

My favorite display was all these varieties of foie gras.

Their cheese selections made me drool too.

I turned away when I saw all the bread. That would have been too hard to resist for me. Bread, cheese and foie gras is the perfect picnic fare for me.

    Hi Leslie, was it cold in Paris last June? Will I be able to manage without a jacket when I go there this June?

    We were there only until the first week of June. A light jacket or sweater will do. Have fun!!!
