Romantic, mouth-watering Paris – where do you start?

Let food-lover and Paris expert Jane Paech show you around the city's mille-feuille of history and culture, with its tempting pastry and chocolate shops on every corner.

You'll visit both legendary and little-known cafés, restaurants and pâtisseries of Paris, and see museums, art galleries, gardens, markets and other interesting places – all at a civilised pace, with time to daydream.

Taste camembert, champagne, strawberry tarts, meringues and macarons on Jane's fourteen themed walks.

About the Author

Jane Paech grew up on a farm in South Australia where her lifelong love of food was born. Living in New York further ignited her passion for both food and travel, and when an opportunity to live in Paris arose, she turned from a career in nursing to travel writing, unable to resist documenting all the wonderful sights, smells and tastes she discovered. Her work has been featured in publications including Australian Gourmet Traveller, Qantas inflight magazine, The Age and the Sydney Morning Herald.

Jane currently lives in Adelaide with her two daughters, Georgie and Annabelle, and their cat, Geneviève.

      I took this book on my holiday in Paris. It gave me information about parts of Paris I wouldn't have found on my own. The maps weren't very detailed and a map showing each of the walks locations on it would be helpful.

        Thanks Jane for another in-depth behind-the-scenes view of my favourite city. There are so many mouth-watering places that have made it onto my must-visit list! So many dishes and so few meal times! I can't wait to return to Paris - and this book is coming with me as a guide!

          Comments about Delicious Days in Paris:

          I have just returned from Paris and fortunately had the book with me, as I stumbled upon it during a search for recommendations on places to walk and eat around Paris. Jane's writing and suggestions really resonated with this self-confessed 'foodie' and I visited quite a few of the lovely cafes and places she recommended during my stay in Paris. The focus on a specific area works perfectly for a stay in this beautiful city, as you can work out where you want to visit that day eg a suggested museum or gallery, and then follow that visit with a drink or coffee nearby. The size of the book is perfect - not too heavy to carry around and fits perfectly into handbag. I passed onto a friend who also loved it.

              This book is an excellent read for those planning a trip to Paris or simply love dreaming about it. It helped us find excellent restaurants and day trips centering around food.
