Where to purchase passover seder food in Paris 2014

donnarama2000 Feb 6, 2014 09:11 AM

Hi there. We'll be renting an apartment in the Marais and I want to host a first-night Seder there. Am wondering where to find PREPARED (preferably ashkenazic-style) dishes. Ideas??

    This doesn't answer your query but I ate today at one of the weirdest and wonderfulest Tel Aviv Street Food places, Miznon on the rue des Ecouffes, so long as you can put up with a goofy menu and imperious front room lady. http://johntalbottsparis.typepad.com/...
    As for Seder food, I think we had a discussion of this in the past, have you done a search?

      Yes, I did search but the old threads. I found that they almost exclusively pertained to where one can go to attend (not host) a seder, and the one place mentioned to buy food is sadly no longer in business. Other than parts of town to walk, I was hoping someone could name a few places (esp in the Marais) where I can purchase the prepared items needed.

      I will check out Miznon, though. Sounds interesting! Thanks.

      Florence Kahn- at the angle of rue des Ecouffes and rue des Rosiers.

        donnarama -- I can ask a friend who lives in Paris, and I'm sure has hosted more than one Seder where prepared Passover food might be purchased.

            Thank you -- I love this article! It is what inspired me to try to do a seder in Paris in the first place (on vacation). That said, it only mentions one store (which I had actually forgotten when I posted this thread) and I was concerned that one specific store might not have everything. Apparently I was wrong!!

              You are welcome. I did not carefully reread the article before responding to your post. I too loved the article when I read it last year and had saved it. So it was easy to link it when I saw your post.
