Having read about the famous cookware shop in Paris, E. Dehillerin http://www.e-dehillerin.fr/en/index.php I had to go when in town!  Established in 1820 and not really changed since then, it is a bit of a step back in time.  It is a pleasure to stroll the aisles and look at all the amazing cookware.  I really, really, really wanted a knife and/or a Staub cast iron pot, but alas, I left with a few wooden stirrers and a small stack of porcelain bowls because the prices were BIG and that cast iron is rather heavy to carry through airports so I thought better of it afterall.

The copper pots are prolific and gorgeous.  The service, hmmm… rather aloof and difficult to ask questions like prices (much is not marked and they aren’t too happy to dig through their enormous price books to find it for you.)  I’m sure the tourists are quite a bore so I don’t really blame them.  It was a fun experience nonetheless and I would recommend walking through.  Also check out the other cookware shops nearby.  There are 3 or 4 more interesting little nooks scattered in the neighborhood.
