The day I arrived back in Paris, the 22nd I immediately ran to the Festival du Livre Culinaire at the Louvre Carrousel. The same space where for fashion shows and the Spa fair. Of course there are tons of famous chef cookbooks on view at the festival.
Antiquarian cookbook sellers too.
Like this home cook book
There are far more kids cookbooks abroad than in the US evidently. No wonder French tastebuds are advanced if they learn to boil water while still in shorts.
Gorgeous cookbooks of every region in the world.
Attend any conference or fair in Europe and you'll see attendees dragging wheelie suitcases for the heavy catalogs handed out. Who knew?
I moved to Paris 2 years ago. I should have done it sooner but that's how the macaron crumbles. Living on the Ile Saint Louis next to the Seine after the 19eme is 'la cerise sur la gâteau'. It doesn't get any better. I've painted watercolors for Bocuse, Champagne Mumm, Guerlain, Frederick Cassel, The Russian Tearoom and the Maharana of Udaipur.
