But will this menu be good enough for a French farmer's wife?

IN Paris, there's so much to love: the history, the architecture, the fashion and, of course, the gastronomy. Bubbling croque monsieur on the Champs Elysées; rare beef and salty frites in a candlelit café; or a classic French patisserie shared with your loved one over a picnic on the Seine's banks.

Food trends come and go, but traditional French cooking techniques never go out of style

This winter, dust off your berets, Emily in Paris style, as Chef Nico Simeone transports you to the French capital with a menu that includes unique specialties as well as typical crowd-pleasers.

Chef Nico Simeone says, “There is absolutely nothing better than French cuisine for millions of people all around the world. 

"Fine-dining restaurants abound in Paris, and the city's culinary industry is legendary. Food trends come and go, but traditional French cooking techniques never go out of style, and the city has something to suit every budget, taste, and appetite.

"With our latest themed menu we aim to take our guests on a gastronomic whirlwind through Paris's finest markets and street cafés and embrace both its French roots and international influences."
