May 20, 2015

Inspired by conversations on the Food52 Hotline, we're sharing tips and tricks that make navigating all of our kitchens easier and more fun.

Today: At a Parisian market, KatieQ shows us how to walk the walk, talk the talk, and eat the eats.

When KatieQ visits Paris, rather than showing us the Eiffel Tower, she chooses to take us to le marché (the market). After sharing a few tips for navigating the French food stands, KatieQ has us tag along on a quick trip to Versailles, where she and two friends enjoy their bounty from the market, sun shining, wind blowing. It’s not a bad way to travel—or to eat.

Polenta, mac and cheese, farmers' market breakfasts, smoky food & drink. These are a few of my favorite things. I was an editorial intern @Food52 in 2015!
