Thank you Marina for sharing with us! I'm excited to try the mushroom recipe. The flavors sound exquisite.

I was wondering if you have come across any restaurants in Paris serving traditional cuisine from the region?

I wish I could help you, but I regret to say that although I have made several trips to Spain and southwestern France, I have never set foot in Paris.

I am happy to share the ‘reply’ button with anyone who can help answer David’s question.

Marina, David and I are neighbors in Paris. There are actually a couple Basque restaurants right in our arrondissement that I hear from French friends are quite good.

For very typical Basque cuisine there's
Chez l'Ami Jean
27 rue Malar
7th, Metro Invalides

and for Basque/French bistro
La Fontaine de Mars
129 rue St. Dominique
7th, Metro Ecole Militaire

There are quite a few others around town, but the default favourite
Au Bascou
38 rue Reaumur
3rd, Metro Arts et Metiers

Marina, thanks very much for the Q&A. I love that part of the world and can't wait to get back with your book in hand guiding me next time.
