A Guide to Women in Food, Paris

Map vide_Jessie Kanelos Weiner_women owned businesses paris_Update 21-03-18.jpg

When developing the idea for my forthcoming book Paris in Stride: An Insider’s Walking Guide (Rizzoli March 27) with my coauthor Sarah Moroz, the challenge was finding the sweet spot between creating a pragmatic walking guide and a beautifully evocative representation of the timeless city that keeps drawing back dreamers, artists and tourists alike. I would have loved to have dedicated an entire guided walk to all the amazing women in the restaurant scene who have trained in Paris and opened up some of the most unique food businesses in Paris over the last couple of years. And frankly, many have been on the forefront of some of the biggest dining trends: food trucks, vegan eateries and fast/casual spots. Instead I’ve compiled a growing shortlist of some of my favorites to support on your next trip to the City of Light.

The nostalgia-inducing pulled pork at Frenchie to Go made me weepy for the motherland.


Poached eggs, a barley hashbrown and sauteed mushrooms at HOLYBELLY.
