Boeuf bourguignon, immortalized by Julia Child, is a classic French dish. “People don’t make it right because it takes too much time” is a phrase I hear often on visits to Burgundy, the birthplace of the beloved French dish. Luckily there are some places that are getting it right.share
Just three hours by plane from Paris is the red city of Marrakech. There’s a reason the city has been a favorite of creative types and designers. The colors and the chaos are intoxicating. And because it’s a relatively quick flight you can feasibly tackle the city in a long weekend.share
The types of cheese in France are varied and while it may seem like a love of pungent cheese is in the blood of the French, I believe it’s an acquired taste. Rather than going straight for the Brie on your next trip to Paris push your palate by trying one of the following stinky cheeses.share
While designers unveiled their collections at Paris Fashion Week, bloggers, models, and starlets showed what’s fashionable now on the streets of Paris. Investing in one or more of these in-style pieces will help reboot your wardrobe for a stylish springtime in the City of Light.share
Paris is a city that shimmers. Considered by many as the capital of fine jewelry, the city is a treasure trove for collectors and enthusiasts with its famed jewelry houses at Place Vendôme and historical pieces in museums across the city, however, it can be an exclusive and secretive worldshare
Healthy, organic food is sweeping through Paris in the form of health food stores, juice bars and vegetarian cafés, and not even boulangeries are immune to the health food craze. We love these loaves from top bakers who are making baguettes in biologique (organic) varieties.share
No country takes chicken more seriously than France, where there are dozens of heritage breeds and where over 30 percent of the chickens consumed have been pasture-raised. However, not all poulet rôtis in Paris are created equal. Discover the best places to sample roast chicken here.share
While Paris is incredible, some of my favorite days have been spent escaping the city. Many fascinating daytrips are reachable by an easy train or car ride and while Versailles is by far the most famous and popular, there are other great places to visit that are just as interesting without the crowds.share
When he opened his first spot, Bob’s Juice Bar, in 2006, Marc Grossman says he was driven by a simple desire to bring a little of New York to Paris.. Since opening his first cafe he has almost single-handedly changed Parisian’s dining habits for the better, introducing them to things like green juice and rice bowls he calls “Veggie Stew.” However, he says his goal was never to push a health food agenda, but rather serve organic, wholesome, tasty food. “We’re not extreme.” says Grossman. “We have muffins, but we also have salads. We try to mix it up.”share
When I spent a semester abroad in London in college, I desperately missed Mexican food. I remember asking a local if you could get it anywhere in the city. He replied “You mean like Doritos?” Obviously Mexican food was a long ways from catching on. But not in Paris.share

Perhaps nowhere are they having more of an impact than in the Burgundy region of France, where it seems women own many of the best and most prestigious domaines.share
Behind a heavy wooden door and down a long corridor in Paris’ 11th arrondissement, Parisians and expats gather like addicts in need of a fix. They hand over money through a doorway in exchange for a much coveted product they can’t find anywhere else in Paris– fresh corn tortillas. Erika Ungur, who is originally from Cancun, opened Mil Amores Tortilleria with two partners last year.shareManage consent
