If you're new to Paris and wishing to orient yourself to “living organic” in the city, or if you've recently decided to change your lifestyle and eating habits and cook and “live more organically,” and you're feeling a bit overwhelmed at the prospect of locating and connecting all the dots... I'd be delighted to orient you as to “where and how to live organic” in Paris.
I'll walk you through the labyrinth of certifications - both official and private, the different protected status labels, how to recognize committed brands and producers, familiarize you with the array of seasonal fruits and vegetables, how to “pick” the freshest and sweetest. Introduce you to the various natural food stores, specialty boutiques, bakeries, cheese shops, natural wine shops, restaurants offering quality organic and artisan fare. I'llhelp you get connected with the many organizations, websites and blogs committed to promoting sustainable practices - such as the AMAP (Community Supported Agriculture) network, local producers - at which marketplaces to find them, marketplace “protocol.” Advise you on cooking with “raw materials” and organizing your kitchen and time to do just that.
I'll furnish you with a wealth of addresses and information that will turn what might seem like a daunting endeavor into a pleasurable experience.
