  1. Thanks for the detailed list Meg. Looks like I found this blog just in time for the holiday events! The Turkey Pot Luck is such a wonderful idea. Gets people together and allows those without families to enjoy the holiday with others instead of by themselves. Plus, imagine all the various eateries you would even know about if you stuck with the same dishes year after year.

  2. You do not have an invitation to the “Clan des Madonnes” (Sunday night 22H)?
    Reserve a spot for the Fooding is really more complicated than book a table at Yam’Tcha 😉

  3. A amazing wine event take place in this restaurant! I went there and it was very friendly. The sommelier has done all his studies in wine and is a real passionate! + its not expensive at all!

  4. One on our calender you might be interested in is Le Grand Tasting at the Carrousel du Louvre (30 Nov to 1st December). Entrance a bit pricey but lots and lots of wine!

  5. Has anyone tried to book tickets for Paris des Chefs via the link on their website? It leads to FNAC where it says “aucun resultat trouvé”. Very French.

  6. Hi Dana,
    There’s a tasting from 11-6pm at Les Caves Augé, but we’re not yet sure what’s happening at night. Surely, something fun. We’ll update the page as soon as we know more!
