My Trip to Paris: Part 4

Posted by

As you can imagine, food is taken quite seriously in France and I am 100% a Francophile when it comes to cuisine. I never passed up an opportunity to eat fois gras, sole cheese soufflé, fromage of all sorts, escargot, steak frites and pain au chocolat and of course to drink lots of wine, rose, and champagne. Here are a few snaps of my adventures with food.

Martha brought me to F. Dehillerin for the first time about ten years ago. I think that they have the most beautiful copper pots in the world.

  • As someone who certainly appreciates French cuisine, I believe their taste for architecture and design is exceedingly appealing. We would love to speak with someone on some interior design features from our designer James Magni, who currently released his book Magni Modernism via Amazon.com http://www.amazon.com/Magni-Modernism-James/dp/1419706713/ref=sr_1_1?ie

    Kindly inform whom should I continue discussion. Love Kevin's article on his trip to France. I remember those days and can't wait to return!
    Cordially,
