Paris, the city of food not just love

Paris is a wonderful city for its food, not just served up in its many wonderful restaurants but in the many specialist purveyors of food dotted all over the city  – a place that keeps drawing back the guilty stomach.

Hediard, Fauchon and of course Le Grand Epicerie (part of the Bon Marche group), possibly the largest and most well stocked of all.

And of course in imitable french style fit-outs, you partake in delightfully fashionable surrounds even in department store cafes……..the exquisitely ornate and massive lead light dome of Galleries Lafayette in Paris being one such example.
