When I think of what we ate in Paris I get happy and sad at the same time… Happy about the amazing things we ate and experienced and sad about the fact that here in the US we can’t seem to allow some of the delicious foods into this country that has made France so famous for it’s cuisine !! Cheese for one thing… The unpasturized, amazingly delicious cheeses we ate are far and beyond anything we have available to us here in the states…. Why is that ? Because of the rules and regulations of the US health department that limits imports of foreign foods…believe me ..no one in France is dying from unpasturized cheese! We certaintly didn’t! In fact, we enjoyed the most amazing cheeses we have ever had!
On our arrival in Paris our friend Cyril had an amazing array of cheese ready for us, to acompany a delicious omelette and fresh baguette and a nice white wine and champagne! The plate he had for us was astonishing!! A perfect lunch! It was a great trip … Mild, creamy, firm, stinky,….we enjoyed it all! This was only the beginning of our experience…!! It only got better from here!!!
You can find cheese options on every menu in Paris. We found them to be reasonably priced and the variety is amazing. It’s a great option for a snack in the middle of the day with a salad and glass wine, to take on a picinic or even to your hotel as an inexpensive dinner. If you have chance to try this Saint-Félicien cheese… OMG!! You will need to use a spoon…it’s so creamy!! It was our favorite!
In every grocery in Paris they offer a great selection of cheese even though Cyril got our cheese from a specialty store. Try different and interesting cheeses! You definitely won’t find them here ! They are super reasonably priced and the selection is unbelievable !! Here is what we had for our lunch upon arrival in Paris!! So delicious!!! Thank you Cyril!!!
Beijos e Tchau!
