Les galeries Lafayette. The mecca of Parisian couture. I’ll never forget the first time I walked into les galeries Lafayette. Just a little girl, I was mesmerized by the iconic glass dome.
When I lived in Paris, I would often wander over to les galeries Lafayette just to gaze at the beautiful window displays. Oftentimes, my man and I would duck over to Lafayette Gourmet for a glass of champagne and a quick bite.
Though Gourmand Lafayette isn’t nearly as grandiose as the main hall, the food selection is quite vast. With a wide array of specialty French products, the store also offers some harder-to-find ingredients. Despite the brand’s reputation, Gourmand Lafayette is surprisingly affordable. There are quite a few lunch spots and bars located throughout the store. Beware – the lunchtime rush and limited seating can make it tricky to enjoy!

The other afternoon, I was lucky enough to get up close and personal with one of my favorite local chefs, Luke Venner. I got a chance to hang out behind the scenes, whip up some bomb butter and chat all things Churncraft.
A few weeks ago, a jury of 39 design experts from around the world met in Germany to judge more than 5’500 product innovations from 54 countries. After careful evaluation, the jury paid tribute to Churncraft’s design with the coveted Red Dot distinction. The Churncraft butter churn will be exhibited at the Red Dot Design Museum in Essen, Germany, along with the other winners.
