Paris, je t’aime: my top-tips for French travel and inspiration

Paris will always be a special city for me. There’s nothing quite like the inspiration that comes from visiting France, it has a certain je ne sais quoi that is unique to this country.

I can’t resist the buttery croissants, an evening aperitif with friends or a stroll through a Parisian park. The City of Lights feels a lot like coming home, and indulging in French cuisine has never been a problem for me either. My time in Paris has allowed me to become fairly experienced when it comes to all-things French. Over on my online magazine Khoollect, we’ve shared an abundance of tips and tricks for travelling to the city and finding your inner-Parisian chic. If you’re inspired to cook up a French feast or travel to Paris,  The Little Paris Kitchen is being repeated on BBC1 on Saturday again; have a watch and tweet me your thoughts.
