Sweet, salty, sour, spicy…there’s something for everyone in this vibrant, cheery bookshop not far from the Grands Boulevards and the hustle and bustle of the Forum des Halles. Cooking enthusiast Deborah Dupont has put her heart and soul into this place, where students rub elbows with chefs, lovers of good food, and collectors of rare, old, or brand-new cookbooks.
This is the kind of place where you learn just what makes a great olive oil, balsamic vinegar or vanilla pod. With table-setting, day-to-day cooking, regional food, international cuisine, desserts, wine, drinks and cocktails, and even literature, history and detective novels covered, you're sure to be impressed at this Aladdin’s cave of culinary treasures.
