The food lover’s A, B, C of rue Montorgueil, Paris

2 Comments

#FriFotos on Twitter is all about the alphabet this week, so here’s my A, B, C of foodie treats that you can find all on one street, rue Montorgueil, in the 1st and 2nd arrondissement, Paris. If you are not familiar with the concept of #FriFotos,  every Friday people tweet their favourite photos for that particular week’s theme using this hash tag.

A is for apples, artichokes and the fabulous restaurant, Au Rocher de Cancale

All this fabulous food, and plenty more besides, can be found in the one street, rue Montorgueil and it’s a favourite haunt of mine when I ever visit Paris.

  1. Bonjour Kathryn

    What magnificent photographs throughout your blog but this post in particular is ravishing. Perhaps the subjects have something to do with my adoration as most of them are firm favourites of the redstuffdan tummy.

    Looking forward to keeping up with The Food Lovers……..

    Bravo

    Regards

    Dan

    • Merci! I must admit I do love photographing food almost as much as I enjoy eating it. It’s also a favourite subject to write about so I’m sure there will be plenty more delicious posts to come!
