“Camille shows us that keeping it simple, trying new wines, and making food that’s direct is all we need for a great experience.”—Andrew Tarlow, owner of The Marlow Collective
Inspired by the stylish, intimate, and laid-back vibes of La Buvette—a tiny wine shop that doubles as a bar and café—in Paris’s 11th Arrondissement, this guide to wine, food, and Parisian lifestyle unlocks the secrets to achieving that coveted je ne sais quoi style of entertaining, along with revealing the best of the City of Light.
La Buvette’s owner, Camille Fourmont, offers a look into the wine notes she uses to stock her shop and the incredible recipes she prepares in the shop's miniscule “kitchen” space. She also introduces some of Paris’s best wine and food makers in intimate portraits. Included are fifty recipes for easy and delicious snacks and full meals perfect for impromptu grazing-style entertaining—with plenty of wine—such as Camille’s “famous” Giant Beans with Citrus Zest; Pickled Egg with Furikake; Canned Sardines and Burnt Lemon; Baguette, Butter, and White Peach and Verbena Jam; and Crème Caramel.
With tips on selecting wine and sourcing antique kitchenware, recreating the charm and ease of Parisian-style entertaining has never been so enjoyable. Whether you are traveling to Paris or bringing a piece of the City of Light into your home, you’ll learn how to drink, eat, and shop like a true Parisian.
