Kitchen stores in Paris: Where the professionals shop.

Kitchen stores in Paris: Where the professionals shop.

There are a few stores in Paris that should be on your “must know” list if you are into cooking and need either utensils and/or hard-to-find ingredients such as sugar-coated violet petals or high-end bittersweet chocolate bars. These are the stores where professionals shop. And if you aren’t into cooking or baking, you could still go check them out because they are truly uncommon stores, if not unique. You can find most of these stores in one small walkable perimeter, in the center of Paris.

-E. Dehillerin has been selling cookware since 1820 and has an impressive collection of copper pans. It has a whole section dedicated to pastry molds and pans as well. This store is definitely worth a detour.
