Do you have friends or family members who are planning to travel to Paris in 2015? We’ve got the perfect Christmas gift idea!

We wrote our new e-book, Dining Out in Paris — What You Need to Know before You Get to the City of Light, with first- and second-time travelers in mind. Because the idea of stepping into a restaurant in a foreign country to order a meal can seem daunting to neophyte travelers, we wanted to provide them with the knowledge that gives them the confidence they need to enjoy a fine meal and a wonderful dining experience in Paris.

As well as providing insider information about French dining customs, our book reviews the wide variety of shops and food markets where fine French fare is sold. And, we’ve included as a bonus twelve of our favorite Parisian restaurants where travelers are sure to enjoy friendly service and a fine meal.

One reviewer has called our book indispensable for visitors in search of an authentic Parisian dining experience.

Give your Paris-bound friends or family members a head start on their vacation plans this Christmas — give our e-book Dining Out in Paris!

Today I purchased a bûche de Noël at Le Founil de Mouffetard.

I took it home and started to unwrap it.

I removed the beautiful ribbon.

I carefully opened the box…and WOW! A bûche de Noël!

Looking more closely, I could see Frosty the Snowman on top. And the message, written in chocolate, Joyeuses Fêtes!

After carefully removing the bûche from the box, I took a photograph.

And then a close-up of Frosty.

And then, I sliced the cake and ate a piece. Scrumptious! Happy Holidays!

The next best thing to being in Paris is reading about it and it’s not too late to give your friends my inspirational book Paris Insights – An Anthology for Christmas. Thanks to Amazon’s Whispernet technology, the Kindle edition can be delivered instantly.

One reviewer called Paris Insights – An Anthology “…at once witty, original, absorbing and a swift read. It offers precisely the kind of insider’s view of the French capital—and the people who live there—that first or even second time visitors pine for…” [Gary Lee, former travel writer for the Washington Post]

Better than a fruitcake for Christmas, Paris Insights – An Anthology is a gift that offers an insider’s view of the things to love about the City of Light.

Just in time for Christmas—the Kindle edition can be purchased and downloaded immediately! Click here to learn more or to purchase now!
