Smeiffel0001.JPGWith only seven nights and seven days in Paris, narrowing down our shortlist of 36 restaurants to a feasible dining regime was no easy task. 

In the end we managed six bistros, two fancy restaurants and over a dozen bars, cafes, boulangeries and patisseries, plus five outdoor food markets and two cooking classes, leaving a couple of hours to quickly nip up the Eiffel Tower and round the Louvre.  

Did we go a bistro too far?

Smcarrousel0001.jpgHello from Paris, where we are caught up in a merry-go-round of sightseeing, bistro-sampling and market shopping.

From now on we'll be trying to keep this site updated with recipes, other culinary notes from our travels and the odd journal entry to let you know where we've got to and what we've managed to write up.

Next stop Alsace...
