Creating tasty memories for an 11 year old...

locmgr1 | Nov 4, 2010 02:28 AM

I am traveling with my wife and daughter (born and raised in Los Angeles) for her first trip abroad to Paris next week. We will be staying near George V metro for a week and will of course venture out to see the sights, however, the point of the trip is to create memories (in the Proustian sense) of Paris that speak to the quality of refinement of taste that is quintessentially Parisian. For example, my daughter has never experienced a patisserie, a bistro, or watching the world pass by while nursing a hot chocolate and/or croque monsieur. Her idea of a garden is an organic farm...So, my question for you all is this: Can you describe a couple (or more) reenactable experiences you had as a child or had with a child in Paris related to food/eating/restaurant that had a transcendent (surpassing the ordinary; exceptional) quality? If you remember it fondly, then my daughter might as well....
