I often wonder where people will go when they tell me they want to dine somewhere “out-of-the-way” in Paris. Do they want to go to the outer reaches of the 20th or 15th arrondissements for lunch? And if they want to go somewhere where “only locals” eat, will they be happy with a standard plat du jour? Or do they want more creative cooking, with an accent on fresh ingredients?
In a tight, closely watched city like Paris, there are few places that are undiscovered. When I first stopped into Mokonuts one day for a cookie, shortly after they opened, there weren’t many people there. When I went back recently, it was packed. And with good reason.

EYB Member favorites Dorie Greenspan, Naomi Duiguid, and Meike Peters also came out on top. See all of the winners on our James Beard Foundation Awards page.

Hello Graham
As the Easter holiday rush begins to wind down, we take a minute to get back in to the swing of everyday routine.
This week, we warm up with Sarah Scarborough of Nomadic Tea Party – a tea-lover from Nashville with a penchant for everything from oolong to traditional India street chai.
We try our hand at the perfect spiced Rhubarb, Orange and Ginger Steamed Pudding and update our morning muesli with The Hungry Cook's golden Anzac Clusters.
Ahead of Mother's Day, we're getting in to the spirit of things with three copies of My Underground Deli to give away – a gift Mum will no doubt love.
Happy cooking everyone!
