"For people living in or visiting the capital, this book
is more important
Paris has long been known as the world's gourmet dining epicenter, but not until now has the French capital been able to claim the coveted "Veg-Friendly" bragging right. Vegetarian Paris, the most comprehensive guide of its kind, explores more than 150 delicious destinations throughout the city's 20 unique arrondissements and arms readers with the information they need to eat well and have fun on their French sojourn.
What Readers Say
Just wanted to thank you for sending my copy of Vegetarian Paris so promptly. It looks a fabulous book. My student daughter and I visited Paris a couple of years ago and we managed OK with the food (we're both vegetarian) but we're really looking forward to sampling a whole lot more foodie delights when we return this summer.
Vegetarian Paris is a wonderful book: I took my two sons in October and we had some wonderful vegan meals. I felt so safe knowing I had the book with me! It also meant we saw a lot of Paris that was off the main tourist trails.
Amazed at how much information is packed into a pocket-sized book. It is very clearly laid out, has clear print, clear maps and excellent photos.
In fact it is not merely a list of veggie and veggie-friendly restaurants but contains a whole stack of practical information such as affordable accommodation, cookery classes, a language guide, events, organizations and recommendations for (super)markets, wine, bike hire, car-share .....
This compact book is the perfect guide for vegan travellers. It contains maps, shopping information, event listings, restaurants and cafes, transport information, accommodation tips and even a handy basic language and phrase guide.
The book is small enough to be taken out for a day of sightseeing and packed with enough useful information to make you glad you did.
224 pages, full colour throughout, veggie maps of every arrondissement, over 200 entries including over 45 vegetarian and vegan restaurants. ISBN 978-1-902259-18-5. Now in stock.
