Few things symbolize Paris and France like the Eiffel Tower. Over the past 121 years, the Iron Lady has become one of the world’s most recognized monument as well as a universal icon of the Parisian way of life of sophistication, class and savoir vivre. But this notoriety has also taken her to some not-so-tasteful heights as her image is declined on nearly everything you can find in a tourist gift shop from earrings to toilet paper. Here are a few of my “favourites” and yes, they all relate to food!
Et voila! Can’t make it to dinner at Alain Ducasse’s Le Jules Verne on the second floor of the Eiffel Tower? No worries. You can bring the Eiffel Tower to you with an entire Eiffel Tower meal! Though it certainly won’t be screaming sophistication, class or savoir vivre!
