Octobre, champignons, foie gras et moules frites

harrisea | Oct 3, 2010 07:07 PM

After a three month stint in a wheelchair and on crutches my husband and I are celebrating my walking again and our anniversary in Paris (indeed, where else?) Will we be too early for foie gras (Oct 11-23)? If not, what restaurants do you all recommend for particularly superb preparations?

We will be doing a lot of cooking ourselves. Will wild mushrooms be in the markets in October? We have had an exceptionally cool summer here in San Francisco and we're seeing fresh porcinis already, even though they usually appear in mid-november.

And lastly, moules frites. I never order them out in the US because I can always make better at home. But we're talking Paris. Frites in duck fat. Green mussels (almost impossible to find here anymore). What are your favorite venues for moules frites.

And I just want to appreciate how much I have copied and pasted from all your past strings. You are all founts of information and so generous with your sharing and responses.
