Why Paris? This is where is often starts for star-gazed lovers of French food & wine and it was no different for us – this is the capital after all. Paris is always buzzing with the latest food trends and best restaurants and finest wines. Many chefs have come to make their mark in the city of light. Some accidental journeys lead to years of cherished moments.

Paris is where it’s happening. Paris is now. Paris is forever.
