Paris, My Sweet giveaway

I am way into the holidays this year. After amazing an amazing Thanksgiving that included stuffing with chestnuts, hazelnut cake and copious amounts of wine, plus some great shopping scores on Small Business Saturday, I am nothing if not in the spirit.

So I'm giving away two copies of Paris, My Sweet, the audio version!
All you have to do for your chance to win is tell me: What's the first thing you'd eat if you were in Paris right now? Respond via the comment box by Friday the 30th. Bon chance et joyeuses fetes!

  1. It might not sound fancy but I would search for a bakery where I could try some bread & cheese.

  2. Coffee, at a street side cafe. Just to soak up that I'd arrived.

  3. Bread. Being back in the states for the holiday made me realized how spoiled on good bread we are in Paris.

    Second, a glass of wine and a plate of oysters over at Le Baron Rouge.

  8. Pain au chocolat, definitely. :) Probably from Ble Sucre.

  10. I know this sounds insane... but I've never had a macaroon, and I think they look scrumptious! So I'd like to try one, and I'd like it to be in Paris!

  12. I've heard about french butter, and I've bought and tried it for $22 and thought it was sublime. But to be able to relax in Paris with a beautiful loaf of bread, wonderful cheese, divine french butter and some fruit would be heavenly.

  13. Croissant aux amandes, pain au chocolat and a baguette with ham and cheese.

  14. Since I am never able to get their during the open hours (even though I live here!), I'd head straight to Du Pain et Des Idées for a pistachio escargot. Maybe even a heaping bagful.

    (I'd offer this audio book to my Dad who loves to listen during long car trips!)

    1. I'm with Meg S on the hot chocolate from Angelina:)

      Or a "formule crêpe salée/crêpe sucrée et bolée de cidre" from any crêperie:) It's a personal tradition (which I will honour on my first day in Paris in December as there is a crêperie almost next-door to where I will be staying).

      And baguette multigrains and brie!:)
