Born in France, I admit to an undoubted bias for the food, art and
indiosyncratic French culture. For a second opinion on this subject
read Gopnik's excellent "Paris to the Moon".
My address book in Paris
includes: Le Pere
cementery for a gentle morning strall and a reminder
of the human's ability for evilness, Laduree
for the macarons and afternoon tea, Salon du Palais Royal-Shisheido
- where Serge Lutens
creates unique perfumes for women, brunch at Mariage
for saturday morning steam baths in the hammam, lunch
on top of the IMA
du Monde Arabe), dinner at La Recreative (tel : O1.43.50.04.17).
