Description: Paris in a Basket was born from a passion for food and unforgettable moments spent at Paris' open-air food markets. For well over a yean the authors ventured to every corner of the city, come rain or shine, to mingle with the vendors and shoppers, sampling a freshly shucked oyster or sliver of foie gras as they meandered down the aisles, absorbing the unique atmosphere of each market. Large or small, they investigated them all and, in so doing, stumbled upon mouthwatering specialty shops, tempting bakeries, neighborhood restaurants, local cafes - and other hidden places of interest -- all of which are naturally included in this book.
With more than 400 photographs, a selection of over 60 of the vendors' best recipes, colorful portraits, and anecdotes about the markets' history, the authors bring to life the distinct character of each of the city's 20 arrondissements. Paris in a Basket is not only a guide to the city's numerous food markets, it is also a tribute to France's never-ending love of food.
