Local Eats Paris
Natasha Mcguinness, £9.99, Yellow Pear Press ISBN 978-0997066425
“Each time I return to Paris, I discover new dishes to fall in love with, fresh local perspectives on cuisine, and slices of artisanal cheese that I would strongly consider shoving an old lady over, just to get a whiff.”
After writing Local Eats London, Californian graduate Natasha Mcguinness lived a dreamy summer eating her way around Paris to unearth the best culinary finds in the French capital. This purse-sized book lists them all, from chausson aux pommes to cheese soufflé.
It is divided by type of food, starting with pâtisserie, ending with desserts and including chapters on bread varieties, bistro classics, cheeses and street food. Every dish is described in detail with quirky facts and in a fun, light tone.
The book ends with a short but handy ‘food ordering guide’ glossary to help you order en français like a local.
With charming illustrations by painter Anne Bentley, Local Eats Paris provides the perfect bucketlist for all foodies travelling to Paris and those who simply love French food.
