Strolling Rue Montorgueil.......

Any-one for snails ??

Strolling my favourite foodie street
in Les Halles district
~Rue Montorgueil~

Oh! and L'homme
tres Parisian
walking with style
oh la la !

If !!! I could live right smack in the centre of
Beautiful Paris
I think I would choose an appartment
right here in this lane-way off Rue Montorgueil
1 minute walk to the very best
restaurants -bakeries- fromageries
and ( of course) out-door coffee shops
I could even try out my very best French like
Je voudrais un cafe creme - s'il vous plait
avec chantilly !!!

Oh Dianne, I am with you - this is one of my favourite streets in Paris. I love the food glorious food everywhere. I went on a Monday this time and I am afraid it was all shut - never mind there is always another time and i still managed to buy two fabulous dresses. x

Suzy:- That's a good thing to know ~ when I go back I'll make sure it's not on a Monday!
pleased you were able to buy 2 lovely dreeses.

Lovely photos, and yes I love snails, well the garlic butter anyway! Diane

"All things French" said...

Diane:- with garlic butter sound divine.

Nathalie said...

You know what? I had snails for the first time in my life in a restaurant rue Montorgueil about 2 years ago. I had never tried them before. So much for French people being snail eaters...

As for the café crème with chantilly, I'm all with you on that one (love it!) BUT for French girls as a rule it's a big no-no. The girls here watch their waistline!

Cezar and Léia said...

You know...I have never tried "l'escargot", it looks so different, maybe it's time to try it!
Some weeks ago I have tried for the first time "the Madeleines", hmmm delicious!I have a French teacher here and she was explained about "La Madeleine de Proust"!

You have absolutely no idea of Paris.Paris is not what you are portraying.
Paris is a cultural treasure and you are not even scratching the surface.You would not last one week living in Paris.Parisians are rude but interesting unlike your cream puff potty vision.
Read Simone de Beauvoir and learn the depths of a the famous city.

Anonymous:- This is the Paris of my holidays & dreams ~ maybe a bit cream puffy but never-the -less, very charming with an atmosphere unparalleled by other cities.Paris has the two elements. Cultured with a wealth of history, art & architecture but it also has the frosty icing on the cake ~ and I love them both. I will take you up on your challenge to read Simone de Bauvoir!!

Hi Dianne,

What another fabulous post and just love it when you share your photographs and places you have visited. Merci beaucoup.
Do you ever watch a series called Trish's Paris Kitchen? an Irish Lady who has a lovely cooking show ~ we love it.
I like your very best speaking in French ~ tres bien.

Happy Thursday

"All things French" said...

Carolyn:- No I've never watched that show but must see if it's on our chanels. I really hope it is, because it sounds like my sort of program xxD

For most of the twentieth century, St-Denis, 10km north of the centre of Paris and accessible by métro (M° St-Denis-Basilique), was one of the most heavily industrialized communities in France, and a bastion of the Communist party. Since those days, factories have closed, unemployment is rife and immigration has radically altered the ethnic mix. For bourgeois Parisians, the political threat of the banlieue rouge ("red suburbs") has become the social threat of the banlieue chaude ("hot suburbs"). Visitors, however, are likely to find a buoyant, youthful community – one in three of its residents are under 25, a far cry from the silver-haired centre of Paris – its pride buttressed by the town's twin attractions: the ancient basilica of St-Denis and the hyper-modern Stade-de-France.

"All things French" said...

Anonymous:- those twin attractions are certainly very different, I learned about the magnificent basilica St-Denis in my History of Art class. The Stade- de- France I googled and was amazed ~ it's such a grand~ modern stadium .

Virginia said...
