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.

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. Wish I'd done it sooner. Living on Ile St-Louis by the Seine is 'la cerise sur la gâteau'. I've painted watercolors for Bocuse, Mumm, Guerlain, The Russian Tearoom, Maharana of Udaipur. Subscribe for a taste of Paris in your email and Paris sketch letters in your mailbox.
