How to make the most of your trip to Paris by cooking for yourself
Posted On May 26, 2021
In the summer of 2017, I had a trip planned to Paris, to celebrate a new book I’d just published.
But instead of staying in the Paris Hilton Hotel, which I’d already booked, I chose to go to the Paris Carriage House catering restaurant.
I had never cooked before, so I didn’t know what to expect.
The restaurant was decorated to look like a carriage house, complete with large white tables and chairs, and its atmosphere was like a kind of old-fashioned hotel.
The menu included dishes such as a grilled duck with mashed potatoes and roasted carrots, and a soup of lentils and tomatoes that was served with a salad.
The chef, who didn’t speak any French, helped me choose between the three dishes, and we ordered both of them with a side of roasted vegetables and salad.
I ordered the grilled duck, which had a crisp, lightly fried crust that melted in my mouth.
The next day, I went back to Paris to find out more about the restaurant.
The owner, named Nicolas, and his staff, who were all in their late twenties, were charming and attentive, and I could see they were doing something special.
Nicolas, a retired military general who had served in the French army for more than 30 years, told me that his wife had been the restaurant’s hostess for five years.
“She was a little too young for that,” he told me.
The food and service was outstanding, and Nicolas had the restaurant up and running by the end of the week.
I was hooked, and decided to stay for the rest of my trip.
I’d always wanted to try catering in Paris, so it was an amazing choice.
The chefs I’d seen there had all been working in the same kitchen.
But when I went to Paris Carriages, the owners told me, “We don’t do that.”
There was no one cooking at the restaurant, and there was no way to book a table, so we had to choose our own table.
We went through three menus, but they all included dishes that I hadn’t seen before.
After eating the first two menus, I realized that there was nothing that I liked in the menu, so after the third one, I tried the lamb chop.
The lamb was well cooked and tender, and it was a perfect contrast to the overcooked dishes that were piled up on the tables.
I realized then that the Paris restaurants were really trying to do the same thing: try to make their food seem authentic.
The dishes were presented in a way that they could be enjoyed by the guests sitting nearby.
In one of the menus, the owner told me he was inspired by a Parisian restaurant called Les Materiaux.
That restaurant had an authentic French theme and was located in the Old Port district of Paris.
The owners there told me they were trying to revive the spirit of the restaurant by giving it a modern spin.
The concept was simple: the restaurant was meant to resemble a carriage that was in the middle of a restaurant, with a menu that would have been used to serve meals to the guests seated nearby.
After dining there, I could tell that the atmosphere was quite different than the typical restaurant I had seen in Paris.
In my experience, the chefs at the Paris restaurant seemed more concerned with their own work than with the food, and that’s exactly what made it special.
I found that the food tasted just as good as it looked.
The waiter had no qualms about helping me put together my own menu, and he also offered to bring the wine list if I wanted to sample some of his favorite wines.
The French restaurants are a mix of traditional French cuisine and the latest trends in the world of culinary, which is why they are popular in Europe.
For example, the restaurant at the Château d’Orléans in Paris is known for its Mediterranean cuisine, and the restaurants of Toulouse in France and Burgundy in France are known for their traditional French cheeses.
As for the food at the restaurants, it’s all organic, and most of the dishes are served with fresh ingredients.
And as I’ve said before, I love eating good food, so that was something that I loved about the Paris cuisine.
The Chef Nicolas, who is also the chef of the Paris Carts, told a different story about how the restaurants started.
“We wanted to take our cooking to a level where we wouldn’t be so busy,” he said.
The Paris Carries owners, who also serve as the chefs of the restaurants on the grounds, started cooking at home with a small kitchen that only had a few chairs and tables, and their restaurant has only about a dozen seats at any given time.
As I waited for the chefs to return, I noticed that there were several other tables set aside for other guests.
The waiters and the waitresses were seated with their backs to me, and as
