Learning my trade in Paris

commisVA | Jan 23, 2011 06:24 AM

I am a young cook and i will take a trip to Paris in April 2011.
I have painstakingly saved my hourly $12, for this trip, for now 2 years.

I would love to eat at Bernard Pacaud, Gagnaire, Helene Darroze, Guy Martin, Eric Frechon, Alain Passard, Barbot etc etc......but I have the budget only for one Lunch and one dinner.

Please help....were should I go????
I really want to experience a great meal from a legendary chef.

I have already eaten here in the US at L'atelier, Daniel, French Laundry, Citronelle and I am lucky to work with a Michelin stared chef.
So I am familiar with dining.

I need also to find the best tarte au citron, croissant, baguette, flan, andouillette, millefeuille, macaron, charcuterie, seafood plater etc etc etc....need also a good butcher (for bresse poultry and lamb etc).
I will have access to a kitchen so I can cook with some great French products.

Please any insight would be very great.......I hope to come back to the US with a better understanding of cooking.

Thank you.
