Long recognised and appreciated for it's culinary supremacy, Paris has a constant pull over foodies from all over the globe, offering a range of eating opportunities seldom matched anywhere in the world.
For high quality cheap eats, we recommend Le Bistro du Perigord, a bistro-come-gastro pub found near Notre Dame, perfect for a post-sightseeing treat. Order from the set menu to enjoy a true, representative sample of the menu and return to enjoy more of your favourites. The duck is a popular choice and don't worry about that hole you think is burning in your pocket, it's nowhere near as big as you think!
For something a little more nautical, why not head over to Ile Saint-Louis where you can find the trendy L'Ilot seafood restaurant. With a menu spanning the ocean wide, you won't feel out of place as either a seafood connoisseur or just a fish and chippy regular. Accompanied by friendly service and the fine wine you'd expect from Paris, L'Ilot justifies the slightly heftier bill that you'll be footing by the end of your evening.
Of course, what use is sampling all this fabulous food if you can't take a little of it's wisdom back home with you? For a day to remember be sure to sign up to a Promenades Gourmandes cooking class and walking tour. You'll be taken through the day by teacher Paule Caillat and cook in her specially designed kitchen. Head through the markets and receive advice on picking the best ingredients to prepare your meals with, then cook alongside Paule before sampling the results and washing them down with more incredible wine. Everything you need to improve your french cooking at home.
The real beauty of Paris though, lies in the little-known, hidden gems that you can discover and share along the way. Tucked away in a secluded corner of the city could be your new favourite bistro ready and waiting!
Obviously, you'll need somewhere to rest your head (and more-than-satisfied bellies!) and the Molitor Paris, Kube Hotel and Hotel Square all offer luxurious stays, perfect for preparing you for another day of food fulfilment!
