1- A Traditional Shop Where You Can Buy

A Piece of History



E. Dehillerin, Est 1820, If you love to cook, you must go there!

Everything you will purchase from this place is the BEST! culinary equipment store has been keeping Parisian chefs and Cordon Bleu students  in copper pans for almost 200 years. It is perhaps the ultimate cooking supply store, but it is not what you would expect given that description. Here you find the finest pots, pans, cooking implements of every description and size, fit for the finest chefs in the world...on ancient cramped wooden shelves. It is magical. The things I have from there give me joy at home every time I look at them.  It's worth it at 18-20 Rue Coquillière, 75001 Paris






2 - Clocks go forward









Clocks go forward And finally, don't forget to move your clocks one hour forward on Sunday March 25th when Daylight Saving Time officially starts in France. Ok, it might mean one hour less in bed but it's all for a good cause.








3 -Take a macaron cooking class

at Galeries Lafayette


 Learn how to bake macarons, the classic French pastry.

Discover french pastry during your stay in Paris!
In the heart of the Opera district, in a quiet corner of Galeries Lafayette, learn the tricks of our French pastry chef for pulling off perfect macarons.

This one-and-a-half-hour class breaks down into two stages: first and just like a chef you will put on your apron to discover the steps of creating the shells and the ganache, the filling and the assembly. Then comes the convivial moment of tasting, shared with a group of 6 to 18 people.
EVERY TUESDAY FROM 3PM TO 4.30PM - EVERY WEDNESDAY FROM 3PM TO 4.30PM at Lafayette’s Apartment. English sessions only. Uncover the mysteries of the macaron and become an expert in this precious dessert.





4- Léonard Foujita at Musée Maillol




Until July 15, 2018, the Maillol Museum in Paris presents an exhibition devoted to Japanese art, naturalized French Léonard Tsuguharu Foujita. Over a hundred major works, collections of public and private collections, trace the exceptional character of the crazy years of Foujita in Montparnasse, surrounded by his friends Modigliani, Zadkine, Soutine, Indenbaum, Kisling or Pascin. The exhibition focuses on the first Parisian period of the artist, very productive between 1913 and 1931.
