One my last visit I wondered into La Souris Gourmande. Souris is mouse in French and Gourmande is gourmet. This is a wonderful cheeses hop. What fascinated me the most was how one can purchase butter. Having only lived in the Commonwealth countries and the US, I am accustomed to butter by the pound in a box. And yes, I have never eaten butter out of a tub that claims to be "I cannot believe it is not butter". I must say that I have a fascination with butter when I go to France. I have never tasted butter so good.
I am always astounded and delighted when I go to a restaurant and am given a selection of butters to go along with my bread. When this happens I need to remind myself I came to the restaurant for the food on the menu and not the bread and butter.
Speaking of Paris if any of you have any suggestions feel free to leave them.
