E. Dehillerin, A Chef's Paradise


Today we found E. Dehillerin. For you Food Network fans of Ina Garten, this is where she buys her copper pots when in Paris. Founded in 1820, this store is a treasure trove of cooking utensils and every shape and size of copper pots and pans you can imagine. The extra added bonus was the extremely friendly salesmen. One even knew where Birmingham is located!!! More French strangers along with some photos of this wonderful shop located on rue Coquilliere in the 1st arrondissement.
French Stranger # 28


French Stranger #29
( He asked me if he ever gets to Birmingham what is the first thing he should see. My answer was, "Moi" of course! )

Oh V - you finally got there - I am so excited! This is the store I told you about when you went last fall. I thought you just had too many more exciting places to visit. When you talk about bringing home some "pot" - this is the "pot" I am talking about. Love it!

Yay I love this store! You've done a wonderful job capturing the beautiful copper pots. I've always found the people who work there very nice and helpful, but I had no idea they also had such a great sense of humor! The bottom photo is just too hysterical.
