    Take a promenade with Amy Kupec-Larue, along the avenues of an arrondissement that has succeeded in preserving its charm and authenticity.

    Beginning in the 15th century, leather tanning and dyeing industries flourished here, thanks to the nearby Bièvre river.  Now abandoned, the picturesque streets and housing developments of the Butte aux Cailles retrace parts of this old riverbed.

    Following WWI, there was a renaissance in urban design and landscaping, typified by some of the gardens in the 13th arrondissement.   Our first garden will be the Parc Kellermann, a charming, discreet green space on the spot of the dismantled Thiers fortifications with two levels of plantations.  We will also discover the classical layout and secret spaces of the Parc de Choisy. The lesser known square Rene Le-Gall with its luxurious vegetation is also a wonderfully preserved example, and by far the most ‘Italian’ garden in Paris.

    There might even be a surprise at the end of the walk!

    AWG has managed to secure a rare invitation to visit the Assemblée Nationale of France (French Parliament) due to the diligent efforts of member Catherine Alziary. Currently, due to security alerts, appointments are by invitation-only via a member of the French Parliament. Your only other opportunity to visit will be by waiting in long lines on Patrimony Day.  

    The center of parliamentary life, the Assemblée Nationale seats five hundred seventy-seven members of parliament who represent the French people. It legislates and controls the actions of the government, adopting some one hundred laws per year. Also known as The Palais Bourbon, it was built in 1728 for the Duchess of Bourbon, with nineteenth-century updates by painter Delacroix, among others. The lavish interiors are impressive.

    Due to security reasons, visitors should arrive at least 15 minutes before their appointment. Adults must provide an ID (national identity card or passport). Proper attire is required (long sleeves in particular).

    The former site of the famously rich priory of St. Martin des Champs, with its stunningly decorated church, is where a dream came true for Abbot Gregoire, one of the leading lights of the French Revolution: the dream of education through display.

    Concrete enlightenment through direct discovery, and the study of the tools, machines, inventions, objects, and techniques accessible to workers, tradesmen, and curious minds alike gave birth in 1794 to one of the world’s very first museums dedicated to technology and industry, those emblems of progress and of a better life for all.

    The seeds of the Arts et Métiers collections was all that had been seized during the Revolution, both from the Royal Academy and from the curiosity cabinets of fleeing aristocrats. But the museum’s funds never ceased to grow, with today 80.000 objects in storage and 2.500 items on display throughout its seven departments: an astrolabe from 1569; Marie-Antoinette’s life-size musical automat; Chape’s first ever telegraph installation; Daguerre’s first ever camera; Michaux's velocipede - the ancestor of our bicycle; and, hanging right over our heads, Bleriot’s very first airplane– to mention but a few!

    To wander through its rooms is to witness the evolution of the sciences and progress in all fields of technology: from the sickle to the combine harvester; from the glass equipment of Lavoisier’s chemistry workshop to the today’s’ nuclear physics; from the first bicycle to the racing car; and from Montgolfier’s first hot air balloon basket to designs for spacecraft. It all adds up to an amazing portrait of the changing face of the world, but one evoked by very different means to those of the artists with their canvasses, sculptures and photographs.

    The museum’s collections are a window not only on technology through the ages, but also on working conditions and on struggles of every kind. Cases filled with the simple hammers and basic tools of many trades give way to the spectacular "machines en grand"; the simplicity of the humble windmill mechanisms contrasts with the complexity of 19th c. hydraulic installations.

    Here before our eyes, the Industrial Revolution sweeps all before it: from craftsmanship to mass production; from workshop to factory; from workers exposed to lethal substances to the dawn of ecological awareness. We can witness for ourselves the progress made in our world, and in our society’s treatment of its working people. At the Arts et Métiers Museum we can see how - whether by slow progress or in spectacular jumps – our world is always moving forward - hopefully to a better future.

    Book: THE HOUSE IN PARIS Elizabeth Bowen

    When 11-year-old Henrietta arrives at the Fishers’ residence in Paris, little does she know what fascinating secrets the house itself contains. Henrietta’s visit coincides with that of Leopold, an intense child who has come to Paris to be introduced to the mother he has never known. In the course of a single day, the mysteries surrounding Leopold, his parents, Henrietta’s agitated hostess and the dying matriarch in bed upstairs, come to light. A Vintage Classic.

    To the proverbial question, “If you could take just one wine to a desert island, what would it be?” Many zealous wine lovers answer instantaneously: Burgundy. 

    It’s not just that the best “Burgundies” – Bourgognes in French – are extraordinary wines, it is that a great Burgundy elicits two things most other wines don’t: emotion and intrigue. You never get bored, wines are full of surprise although they all come from the only 2 grapes allowed in Burgundy: Pinot Noir for the reds and Chardonnay for the whites. What makes them different? Just the place where they come from -- the village or just a single little plot. In French, they call that the “terroir.”

    During our evening together, we will taste wines coming from one part of Burgundy: Côte de Beaune, South of the village of Beaune. We will travel through the beautiful villages of Beaune, Meursault, Pommard, Volnay, Chassagne-Montrachet.

    The 12th arrondissement was not actually incorporated into the city of Paris until 1860.  At its western tip is the site of the former Bastille prison, stormed and demolished during the Revolution.  Like the 11th, the 12th was a center for craftsmen and the furniture trade, and therefore largely a working class neighborhood.  It was also a center for charitable institutions starting with the Abbey of St-Anthony of the Fields and the Quinze-Vingts Hospital.  However, recently the 12th has been transformed by new buildings and parks including the Bastille Opera, the Viaduct of the Arts, the “Promenade Plantée”, the Bercy Omnisports palace, the Finance Ministry, the Cinemathèque and Bercy Park.

    The Grand Musée du Parfum, a must-see attraction in Paris!

    The museum, tucked away from the street, is a delight for all the senses. Set inside a 19th-century mansion that was once the residence of the Roederer Champagne family, the modern, aesthetically beautiful place, along the Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré, is a concept museum—an experience all around the sense of smell.

    It isn't the first perfume museum in the city, but it is one of the most expansive, with high-tech sensory exhibits tackling questions like: How do the industry’s top “noses” create scents? How is smell linked to memory? What was the first perfume known to mankind? How are smell and emotions connected? What raw materials are used in today’s fragrances?

    This is a special escape for AWG members a full sensory experience with lots of smelling!

    This year for Tasting Paris, Kelly and Chantal have been introducing AWG members to French food regions, and this month we will taste Auvergne. At the center of France, Auvergne is known for it's traditional food, fine products, and wine, mainly based on Gamay, Pinot noir grapes for red and Chardonnay for white.

    The folks at Ambassade d’Auvergne are true ambassadors for the Auvergne region. The menu is a composition of Auvergne specialties, right down to its regional fromage. You may be asking: “What specialties do they serve?” Yet, the better question is “Where can you eat the best aligot in Paris?” The answer: at the Ambassade d’ Auvergne--where the spinning ceremony (see photo)commands your attention. Originally, aligot was a soup consisting of broth, bread and fresh tome, served by the monks of Aubrac pilgrims on the way to Saint Jacques de Compostela. After the revolution, the peasants of Aubrac continued the tradition in their burons. In the 19th century following a bad harvest of wheat, the bread was replaced by potatoes to become aligot as we know it today—a fondue-like dish of whipped potato, cheese and a bit of garlic. It is clear that the owner, Didier Desert is a true connoisseur of wine and food from the region–and not just its duck, pork stew with braised cabbages, Salers cheese,  or Aubrac beef and lentils, but its game and trout, also. The chocolate mousse and rustic aperitifs – vin de noix and rhubarb wine with Ratafia and Gentiane liqueur – are not to be overlooked. This is a charming and inviting place for simple, rustic, and delicious food.

    Most likely you know oenology (the art of wine making), and perhaps zythology (the art of beer-brewing); but do you know the caseology de fromage (the study and knowledge of cheese)? Or how to increase the pleasure of tasting the cheese? (Yes, it's possible).

    This is an evening of immersion in all things French—French cheese, French wine, traditional French bread—hosted by French Fromager and Burgundian, Gilles Clayeux (and presented in English). In this French immersion experience, you will learn the art of pairing various cheeses with French wines, you will be shown various ways to present your cheese when serving at home, and of course, you will be tasting some of the best straight-from the farm French cheeses available in Paris. This tasting includes five cheeses and five wines. See you at this fun and delicious immersion—what a great way to share a Thrusday evening! Register quickly, as this sold out within an hour of being posted last time it was offered.

    La Resistance evokes a harrowing time of when the City of Light was under the darkness of the German Occupation. Amid the darkening gloom of the German ruthlessness, a resistance arose. In France, especially in Paris, the Resistance was one of the most heroic endeavors of all time. Parisians, whether wealthy, poor, adolescent, elderly, communist or artists, rallied around a little-known French military officer, Charles de Gaulle. Join Jean-Manuel and learn how Parisians discretely participated in obstructing the German occupation and actively providing escape routes for Resistance and Allied fighters. We will explore the area near Gare Saint Lazare, discovering luxurious spots where German officers relaxed and unknowingly shared information, and we will hear true stories of valor and courage. Jean-Manuel is an entertaining storyteller who personally interviewed several Resistance participants…Listen and learn! (Please dress appropriately for walking outside!)
