Famous French Food – What to eat in Paris

Which famous French food do YOU think of when you think of being in Paris?  For me, the list is oh so long, and when I spend a month or so in Paris each year, I take photos of just about everything I eat, so I can share all those yummy things here on the website with you.

Famous French food – simple is best

When I eat French food, it’s often the simplest which brings the most pleasure – for example, there’s nothing like a hot croissant, freshly baked first thing in the morning (and never, ever microwaved!!!). The taste of a fresh baked baguette with strawberry jam and a great cup of coffee is one of life’s little pleasures.
