Gastronomy in Paris

One of the foodie capitals of the world, Paris is a haven for those who love gastronomy. The French are extremely conscious of terroir - the qualities of the land and environment in which wine or food is grown - and are selective when it comes to ingredients, dishes, cheeses and - of course - wine. No wonder the gastronomy of the French was given UNESCO status as “Intangible Cultural Heritage” in 2010! In short, Paris is a wonderful city in which to unleash your inner gourmand, whether you are an avid cook or simply a lover of dining out (extremely) well.
