Paris is the dreamy destination for anyone whose heart belongs to travels. As you get the opportunity to spend a couple of days in the city, indulge in the most spectacular thing it has to offer – food. I’ve gathered some of the top food choices that will make you fall in love with
Paris France food. From baguettes to eclairs – let’s try it all!
There is just something magical about food in the capital of France. Yes, Paris is the city of art, fashion, and luxury. But if you miss out on its iconic food, you’ll have to come there once more because this is an experience to remember. I mean, visiting Paris twice would be amazing, but better make sure both vacations are filled with the taste of France. And that is one fantastic taste.
The following delicacies are the ones that have left me speechless upon the very first bite. Quite literally as well. Each of them is so numbingly delicious that you shut down to the real world to enjoy the taste.
With croissants comes a unique experience that makes them taste even better. Aтd even on the go, you’ll enjoy a pastry like you haven’t before! The variety of fillings means you never get bored of them!
Among the most interesting flavors I’ve tried in the capital are lavender coconut, salted caramel, and cookies & cream. These are the more unique options that go hand in hand with the standard deliciousness of chocolate, strawberry, lime, etc.
When buying a baguette in eater Paris, look for the words: l’ancienne (classic/old-style), campagne (country bread), and tradition (traditional). They mean that this baguette is prepared by hand via the traditional leaving methods.
This dessert consists of a round pastry cut in half with a cream filling inside. The creme praline is usually made of nuts (mostly almonds and hazelnuts). The taste is sweet and rich with nutty tones.
For dinner, you should eat something more substantial. And here comes the duck confit. This dish requires hard work and, if done right, can become a chef’s master-dish. In this case, you’ll find the love for ducks in your heart! The meat is tender if cooked on low heat for a long time and its salt and herbs curing makes the taste simply perfect. And it’s often served with those French fries!
I’m a big fan of eclair back at home, but Parisian bakeries have surpassed everything I’ve tried before, not only in terms of taste but diversity as well.
For a tasty éclair, come to L’éclair de Génie. This place makes their goods into a piece of art. My personal recommendations: chocolate and raspberry, lemon-yuzu, and cerise griotte.
Ideally, but a set of 6 eclairs that represent the whole current collection.
Thus, I highly recommend it to everybody! This is the basis of French cuisine that perfectly illustrates it – even the simplest ingredients you have at home can be transformed into a delicious dish – an internationally-recognized one!
France is a country of delicious food. It is hard to try everything tasty on one visit. I believe a follow-up article will be in place the next time I visit and, undoubtedly, try many other delicacies. I’ll surely be looking for backstreets menu tartare, fromage, lots of chocolate, wine, and escargots!
And no, I announce Paris the capital of desserts!!
