Without doubt - rue Cler is one of the most famous food streets in Paris, and its a 5 minute walk from my apartment.
In 1659 Louis XIV granted David Chaillou the first and an exclusive right to sell chocolate in Paris, where he continued to do so for the next three decades.
In France, a place where you buy wine (vin) is called a cave. This man was kind enough to teach me a few things about the quality of wine. Although people have been drinking wine for thousands of years the French still believe they invented it!
As you may know, the best bread (pain) can be found in Paris. One of the major brands is Poilane which is famous for their wood-fired ovens and can be purchased in a bakery (boulangerie).
France is like the moon. It has 340 unique varieties of cheese (fromage). My favorite cheese is aged Compte which is excellent with cherry jam.
I hope you enjoyed my first post and will be back soon with more about my life in Paris!
