Très délicieux

Anyone planning a foodie trip to Paris should check out this book, one of the prettiest and yummiest city guides I’ve ever seen! It’s a guide to the best patisseries of Paris, and even tho it’s in Japanese, the names and addresses are all in basic French, and the book is mainly pictures.

You can buy it online here for 1800 yen, or it’s at Kinokuniya near the Craft section for about $40. I’m so happy to find the online ordering site (in English) for this Japanese publisher, because they make the coolest books, including one on Copenhagen apartments, one on Parisian studios, one on Stockholm kitchens, and heaps more!!

    Oh woooow!! This is the best way to wake up – to amazing food porn! Haha ^^ The photos are just so beautiful and yummy. I wish I could find great books like this in the US, but I guess our market just doesn’t have an appreciated for great food photos.

    Thanks for introducing this book, I’m really going to try and get it!

    It looks awesome and I recognise Pierre Herme, the “Picasso of pastry”, in its pages! Now will have to check out the Parisian studios book …

    wow, if I lived in Paris or other cities with such delicious goodies I’d probably have a hard time not gorging myself on baked goods and snacks all day long. It’s hard enough here in the US…haha

    Lee Tran, that’s so cool! You are the expert on all things Parisian. Did u write this book? *__^

    Adrian, yes I agree. There appears to be a lot more temptation in places like Paris and Tokyo!
