Although I’ve only been to Paris twice- both times to Disneyland, once in the summer aged 6, once at Christmas aged 10- I’d say it was one of my favourite places on earth. I do remember the magical feel of the entire city. The Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, the glamorous women, the delicious food- but at such a young age, you don’t fully appreciate the real beauty of the French capital. I was just excited to meet Cinderella, see the Magical Kingdom and buy some Minnie Mouse ears.
The city of love and the city of fashion, some of the greatest designers hail from Paris. Chanel, Christian Dior and Yves Saint Laurent, to name but a few. If my future husband, whoever you may be, reads this, be a good egg and hop me on the Eurostar before you get down on one knee!
Fashion, culture and Walt Disney aside, France also has some of the most delicious food in the world. Who doesn’t like bread, cheese and wine?!
The team at Bonjour French Food sent us their October food box for us to enjoy that little slice of Paris through our door!
Bonjour French Food monthly subscription boxes are now delivering in the UK, either for yourself or as a gift, with a surprise selection of gourmet products each month. Prices start at only £29 per month, and we think it’s well worth the price for all those who love dining al fresco… Or just around the cuisine tableau.
In our box we received six different products.
– Marlette: Fondant au Chocolat baking mix
– Petits sables ronds et bons Michel et Augustin
– Tomato and Sweet pepper spread, Anchovy & Garlic ducs de Gascogne
– Wild boat terrine, hazelnut and tangerine Ducs de Gascogne
– Tonton La Rondelle Pepper-coated saucisson
– Terrine de Magret de Canard Miel des Cevennes Maison Papillon
(No, we weren’t sure what exactly we were letting ourselves in for either)
However, I was pleasantly surprised by almost every treat in the box. It was all completely different to the terrines, pates, biscuits and sausages you get on the shelves of Tesco, and it was definitely an impressive array of delicious French treats for people who want to try something new.
We’ve still yet to make the cake from the mix, but it looks like it’s going to be delicious! We’ll let you know about that when we have a tasting session!
The boxes are available at http://www.bonjourfrenchfood.com, with a variety of delivery options available. There’s also an offer where you can save £5 by entering the code FRENCHFOOD.
Why not grab your beret, pretend you’re in a cafe next to the River Seine and enjoy some real French cuisine. Bon Appetit!
