Claus: The Art Of Breakfast in Paris

Claus: The Art Of Breakfast in Paris

Breakfast in Paris? Even ten years ago, the idea was practically a joke. The French don’t consider breakfast a meal; lunch and dinner are meals. Breakfast is a steaming bowl of coffee and perhaps a pastry or slice of bread smeared with butter and jam. Children might enjoy a piece of fruit or a yogurt,

Eating Out (Well) in Paris: Six Restaurant Gems for the Frugal Foodie

Good food in Paris is not a tall order. But good food for less than 15 euros? That can be much harder to find, and can make staying in Paris on a budget nearly impossible. This is one reason I love French food markets so much. You can eat well for a fraction of the

What I Miss Most About Paris: the Cafe Gourmande

by Maggie Battista
Cafe Gourmande

It’s no surprise that I generally always miss Paris. I think everyone who appreciates Paris misses Paris, right? Do you? I miss the scent of the grey streets in the early morning after a night of hard rain. I crave the afternoon aromas of freshly baked bread and the imagery of sharply-dressed business men lopping

Learn to Cook in France: The Cook’s Atelier

I’ve known about The Cook’s Atelier for a long time; their style is just that memorable. Mother and daughter duo Marjorie and Kendall run this cooking school in the tiny (and lovely) city of Beaune, France where they’ve most recently also opened an online shop filled with new and vintage French-inspired finds. These two make

Breizh Cafe: Experience Brittany Crepes in Paris

Experience Crepes at Breizh Cafe

No trip to Paris feels complete to me without a stop at Breizh Cafe, an authentic Bretagne-style creperie in the Marais. I made sure to point Amy toward it’s glowing windows and overflowing plates, and a little something sparkling, naturally. Here’s why it should be on your to-do list, too. ~Maggie Maggie’s first recommendation for

Socca: Chickpea Flour Crepes You Have to Try

by Denise Woodward
Socca – The Chickpea Flour Crepes You Have to Try

My first taste of Socca was in Nice, where the golden triangles are sold at markets and out of stalls on nearly every corner – it’s practically the city’s official snack! A friend and I ate it up within seconds, marveling over the texture and taste, and wondering how to make it at home. Thanks

I might have a bit of an obsession with French food (and cafes, and bistros, and markets…). Maybe. That’s why Maggie wanted to spend a little time in Paris this month (via the blog, of course)! We’ve been talking about must-visit eateries in the city, the best outdoor food markets, and a jam shop that

Eat Boutique Guide to 5 Favorite Paris Markets

There is great food in Paris. Scratch that, there is phenomenal food in Paris. It is, however, sometimes pricey (though not always – stay tuned for our Gourmet Cheap Eats Guide later in the month). One of the best ways to eat well and enjoy the beauty of Paris in the spring and summer is

When I think of Paris, everything sweet comes to mind. And this new boutique totally dedicated to sweet preserves is now at the top of my list for my next trip. Thanks to Lindsey for encouraging us to get to know La Chambre Aux Confitures, and Amy for all the tasting over there. ~Maggie When

In Maggie’s Kitchen: Let’s Spend Springtime in Paris

I’m in Europe right now, soaking in the rain and the fog and all that greenery from every Irish vista. You were all completely right – it’s gorgeous and everything I ever imagined. It’s actually providing the perfect pause from my hectic food gift life, the cookbook release planning, and a few new projects that

Bon Appetit: Mimi Thorisson on her Kitchen in France & her Aunt’s Fava Bean Soup

Warning: This article may inspire you to move to a farmhouse in France. Mimi Thorisson has that power. I started reading her blog, Manger, years ago and I’m still plotting my escape overseas. Mimi’s life on her stunning farmhouse in France, complete with adorable children and cuter-than-cute dogs, would be enough reason to make us jump ship, but then

Celebrate Beaujolais Nouveau with a French Dinner Party

What We’re Loving: Beaujolais Nouveau Dinner Party

With Beaujolais Nouveau Day fast approaching (the third Thursday in November every year), we’re putting on our menu-planning hats and coming up with ways to celebrate the new wine. Bottled just 6 to 8 weeks after harvest, Beaujolais has very little tannin and typically is quite fruity and light. In fact, some find the purple-pink wine

Europe Whirlwind

I made a promise to myself when I embarked on writing a cookbook. The promise was simple: I promise to do whatever I need to make sure I appreciate and even enjoy this cookbook writing process.  And no matter how busy I get, I am making sure to do just that. In March, I had the

Eat Boutique Sale on Small Business Saturday

Six years ago, I almost started a blog called Eat Small, instead of Eat Boutique. Did you know that?! I think about it every year around this time. With Small Business Saturday just a couple weeks away, I’m reminded of why I started this boutique business to highlight boutique makers. Boutique is all about small.
