The Pilgrimage

 

Venturing out into the famed Les Halles district of Paris I was in search of a tart ring for practice.


Les Halles was the traditional central market of Paris and was once a bustling area of merchant stalls, nicknamed “the belly of Paris” by Emile Zola. Its wrought-iron-and-glass arcades were filled every morning with fresh produce from all corners of France.

 

Now it is closed down, a construction site, for the reinvigoration of an area that had lost all its charm.

 

It is still home to one of my weaknesses, places where I could spend never ending amounts of money.

 

What is it you may ask … the specialist stores that supply the world of gastronomy.

 

Famed for generations of chefs and gourmands alike each of these establishments has a long reputation with some having been there as long as 1814.
