About the book

Clotilde's Edible Adventures in Paris is a window onto my Paris, this delicious stomping ground for the food enthusiast. It is the companion I wish I had for every city I visit, pointing me to the edible highlights and giving me the lowdown on the dining scene, the best food shopping haunts, and the locals' favorites.

Book description: "In Clotilde's Edible Adventures in Paris, Clotilde reveals her all-time favorite food experiences in her native city. She takes us on a mouthwatering tour of the restaurants, wine bars, and outdoor markets she loves the most, as well as cheese, pastry, ice cream, candy, chocolate, and cookware shops.

She covers everything from the best places for lunch, tea, or a glass of wine to "neo bistros" and the newest places to go for spectacular yet affordable meals. Packed with advice on everything from deciphering a French menu to ordering coffee correctly, this book is like having Clotilde as a personal guide. Twelve tempting recipes are also included, shared or inspired by Clotilde's favorite chefs and bakers.

For first-time visitors and seasoned travelers alike, Clotilde's Edible Adventures in Paris offers invaluable insider recommendations for eating and shopping with Parisian panache.

The best of Paris, featuring 164 restaurants, bistros, wine bars, and salons de thé, as well as over 130 bakeries, pastry shops, cheese shops, bookstores, chocolate and candy shops, cookware and tableware stores, specialty shops, outdoor markets, and much, much more!"

The book is illustrated throughout by two-color photographs plus sixteen pages of full-color pictures, all taken by the author.
