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.

-Famous pastry chef David Lebovitz says “If G. Detou didn’t exist, I couldn’t live in Paris.” The stores sells only edible goods and as its name indicates G. Detou (I. haveverything) has it all. It is a heaven for baking goods and the great pastry chefs shop here for ingredients that can’t be found anywhere else. You’ll also find lots of savory regional goods on the floor-to-ceiling shelves such as the tasty sardines from Brittany La Belle-Iloise or jars full of all different kinds of dried mushrooms. G. Detou is a must-shop at.

Does A. Simon have a website? I saw small jam spoons with “hook” handle to sit on side of small jam bowl but can’t find them online. Any ideas?

Hello Teri, I don’t believe A. Simon has a website. The jam spoon with a hook you are looking for is called “cuillère à confiture coudée” in French. The kitchen store Alice Délice sells it for 5.95€.
