About The Book

A Cookbook and Travel Guide That Will Teach You to Shop, Cook, and Eat Like a Parisian

Based on Emily Dilling’s popular blog,, this fully updated new edition of My Paris Market Cookbook takes readers on a tour of Paris’s growing artisanal and craft food scene, including coverage of the latest developments and new generation of chefs and artisans who are indelibly changing the food climate. Visits to markets with local farmers, coffee roasters, and craft brewers offer insight into the exciting development of local food movements in the city of lights and its surrounding region. Complete with seasonal recipes inspired by local products, farmers, chefs, restaurants, and cafés, My Paris Market Cookbook brings the experience of shopping for, and cooking with fresh, locally grown food into readers’ homes and kitchens.

A guide for a new generation of culinary travelers, My Paris Market Cookbook provides curious cooks and avid Francophiles with a unique itinerary for rediscovering the city, including tips on how to find the best off-the-beaten-path natural wine bars, craft breweries, urban gardens, and farm-to-table cafés and restaurants. It’s the perfect handbook for travelers, food lovers, or anyone visiting or living in France—and those of us who just want to cook and eat like a Parisian!
