Although Paris is famous for its crepes, keep in mind that all crepes in Paris are not equal. In particular, when in Paris, make sure of sampling the crepes sold at Creperie Josselin. Their crepes are made from buckwheat flour and the nice thing about their crepes are their delightfully crisp edges. In fact, these crepes are filled with egg and ham as well as cheese and onions. Some are filled with smoked salmon while the dessert crepes are made with stuffed vanilla ice cream with sugar and Grand Marnier flambéed on top.
Florence and its excellent Risotto dish
This is a food that is very delicious and the risotto dish starts with goat cheese and basil as well as some mint. It is topped with some strawberry sauce and is an excellent food that has a unique creamy and tangy taste which is obtained from the goat cheese which is well balanced with herbs. The sweet strawberry sauce makes this one of the best foods in Europe.
