Paris may have enjoyed decades as the undisputed gastronomic capital of the world, but food revolutions in the likes of London and Copenhagen have challenged its reign in recent years.

After a spell of complacency, Parisian chefs have had to up their game, with delicious results. This guide will show you where to sample the best of the French classics, from cosy bistrots to swish brasseries, as well as where to check out the more recent innovations in the Parisian food scene: everything from high quality street food with a French twist, to newly-popular vegetarian restaurants, juice bars and locally brewed craft beers.

The guide will also offer a practical guide to making the most of your Parisian food experience like a local.

This little book is filled with stunning coloured photographs which will make your mouth water in anticipation of delicious food.
Listed in Arrondissements from 1 to 23, this book contains everything a visitor needs to know on where to eat from fine dining to café culture.
Each section contains detailed information on the best places to eat, listing Pure Paris, the Best Bistros, Al Fresco, Pop-ups, Perfect Patisseries, Cosmopolitan, Café Culture, Going Green and the best bakeries.
184 pages of detailed information; this book is an absolute delight to read.
For those about to visit Paris, may I suggest that you pack a copy of this book in your luggage.
The best ‘foodie’ book I have read in ages!

This is a lovely guide to food in Paris and it has something for everyone’s taste! The guide is brilliant in splitting out different types of tastes, for example, if you’re looking for craft beers or vegetarian restaurants as well as listing your typical French restaurant. It makes it really easy to flick through the book and pick something based on your diet or perhaps based on what you’re feeling that day. I love the addition of things like a craft beer place because it takes the book away from the feeling that a guide book is just made for someone who wants traditional stuff and opens it up to being new and trendy and encompassing all food-related activities. I lent this to my boyfriends’ family when they went to Paris and they loved it, they ended up going to one of the restaurants in the book, which happened to be close to their hotel and they loved it!

The Food Lovers’s Guide to Paris is the first food book I ever read cover to cover in one day. I can personally recommend it and say, “delightfully delicious”. You are introduced to the book with a casual overview of then and now and reassured that French cuisine is here to stay... With about 18,000 restaurants in Paris, Helen who has lived in Paris since 2007, provides new alternatives and a few classics. Her descriptions are engagingly written and personal. Her non-allergic and specialty food styles are blended together for easy, smooth and tempting reading.

I can highly recommend the Food Lover’s Guide to Paris as a practical addition to your travel packing, whether real or virtual.

As someone who spends loads of time in Paris and writes a blog about it, I am frequently asked about what restaurants I recommend. With an estimated 40,000 restaurants in this city, that is super challenging.

“The Food Lover’s Guide to Paris” by Helen Massy-Beresford makes the choices much easier! That’s because you get Helen’s personal recommendations of places that she has tried and loved. And she organizes them by districts. So if you are staying in the 9th arrondissement for instance, Helen has selected maybe her top 20 places and adds enticing details, such as "Pink Mama prides itself on the quality of its ingredients - it raises its own corn-fed cows!”

The Food Lovers Guide to Paris is also a compact guide that fits nicely into your purse or suitcase.
My advice. If you are going to Paris, don’t leave home without it.
