Paris. It's all about le Food
Petite Paris, in our 6th annual Parisian sojourn living in Paris 2 months each year; collecting exclusive Paris B&B apartments and digging deep into the city to unearth city secrets and latest locales; this year we've being led into the foodie scene even deeper by a local travel writer (watch out for a fab new article about Paris, food and Paris food) and we've been eating their way through every nook and cobblestone crevice and can say (or burp)...Paris is still/always ‘all about the food’ i.e Manger – to Eat!
