Since I’m a bit less mobile these days with bébé on board and don’t get out to do as much kale exploring, I’m going to use the opportunity to go back in time and share the things that happened kale related in France that I never got around to posting on the blog. There will still be current, day to day posts but hopefully these will be entertaining as well.
First up is my wintery afternoon lunch at Miss Lunch! Located in the beautiful Square Trousseau in the 12th arrondissement, Miss Lunch is a quaint eatery with unique, creative dishes that change based on the seasons and what founder and chef Miss Lunch is inspired by! Many of her inspiration comes from her Egyptian and and South African roots.
The restaurant is close to Marché Aligre which is where Miss Lunch shops for most of her ingredients and as this market was not one of the first to have kale available, it was quite exciting when her maraîcher finally sourced it. Even now kale is not always available at this market but I also do not get over to it that often. I do have a few #KaleSpotted devotees in this area that keep me posted when it is spotted.
She also does pop-up events via “Lunch in the Loft”, has written a few cookbooks and offers cooking lessons. And her restaurant sells a variety of cooking ingredients like hot red peppers, salts and more. When it comes to food, Miss Lunch is a jack of all trades.
If you’re looking for a fun Paris activity a morning at the Marché Aligre followed by lunch here is a great option – especially for those who have been to Paris multiple times and are looking for something different to do.
