The world's most visited city isn't resting on reputation. Paris's strongholds of culture and gastronomy continue to evolve. Top chefs are opening casual new wine bars, and pastry wizards are folding exotic ingredients into their dough. Parisbymouth.com writer Meg Zimbeck takes us on a tour.
Bake Baguettes Like a Parisien
Tasting the city's best baguettes is one thing, but wouldn't it also be great to learn how to make them? Award-winning baker Benjamin Turquier, shown, runs the bakery 134 RdT and placed in the top 10 in this year's annual Best Baguette in Paris competition. He teaches baguette-making courses for private groups in both French and English. You learn about every step of the process and actually produce your own baguettes to taste after class.
