A Day at the Berges de Seine

Facebook Twitter Linkedin

Last Saturday brought beautiful weather to Paris. It was a perfect day for a food fair along the River Seine. Called Manger Local (Eat Locally), the event featured fresh agricultural products from the Ile-de-France region, plus activities for children. It took place on the Left Bank between Pont des Invalides and Pont de l’Alma.

Some of the adults (and children, too) got a back massage.

And then there was the food. The Bügelski food truck was there, selling bagel sandwiches.

Then, from Thaï Thanh I purchased a scoop of Fleur d’oranger à la pistache (orange flower sorbet with pistachio) and Poivron, orange sanguine et espelette (bell pepper and blood orange sorbet flavored with Espelette pepper) on a cone. I blogged about Thaï in June of this year.

I finished off the lunch with a cup of espresso from Brûlerie Caron’s coffee stand. Caron won the Meilleur Torréfacteur de France award in 2011. Their shop is located in Châtillon, just seven kilometers from Paris.
