Unique and fabulous foods to take home

Savourer | Feb 6, 2009 06:31 PM

I am going to Paris for the 2nd time in May. The 1st time that I went, it was with someone who doesn't eat or care about food. This time I am going with my husband. Although he does not care about buying food, he does love to eat it and have it cooked for him.

So...was thinking about what wonderful things I can buy to take home from Paris...truffle oil, chocolate, mustard, herbs, cheese etc.

Would love any input on which truffle oils for example are particularly wonderful - and a few shops to get them at. Any other uniquely French, Parisian or just gournet or interesting food products to take home.

Also would like to take a half dozen really nice bottles of wine back - any favorites that won't break my piggy bank?

Thanks for any thoughts.

Oh...cookbooks? Cooking shops? Best restuarants for tasting menus? Favorite restaurants for Fois gras?
