If E. Dehillerin is not the most practical place to shop for kitchen equipment in Paris, it’s certainly the most nostalgic. The vintage, forest-green storefront spans the corner of rue Coquillière and rue Jean-Jacques Rousseau, windows brimming with gleaming copper and stainless steel (as they have for nearly two centuries). Opened in 1820, in the heart of the renowned Les Halles food district, this family-run business was a favorite spot of the Cordon Bleu-trained Julia Child; today, its old-school charm and friendly service continue to attract top French chefs, from Bocuse to Rebuchon.
Like any good “historic monument”, E. Dehillerin welcomes curious non-shoppers; so if the closest you’ve gotten to cooking is watching Julie & Julia, no worries, you too can stop by. And who knows? A shiny new balloon whisk or specialty spatula might inspire you to head straight to the nearby Montorgueil market.
