Wendy at Market

The Paris Kitchen™ gives savvy, globe-trotting foodies local introductions and an off-the-beaten-path experience of Paris’ food scene – written & photographed by culinary insider Wendy Lyn - named one of the Top 10 Food Guides in the World by The Wall Street Journal.

Originally from the Deep South, Wendy has an enviable network of food and wine contacts as her close circle of friends after having worked many years as a public relations & restaurant consultant to some of the best chefs and restaurants in the world.

Wendy Lyn is obsessed with restaurants, especially those that get it “right.” You can find her in a different restaurant every single day, sharing meals with other chefs and restaurateurs comparing notes.  She chronicles her quest and posts the week’s top pick on her blog, The Paris Kitchen.

Whether on this website or up close in your own private food & wine tour, Wendy Lyn opens her little black book of the best connections—from the oyster shucker to the hottest chef—to share fascinating stories that enrich your experience and promises to put your finger on the food pulse of the city quickly so that you can eat and drink like an insider too.

Dubbed “the insider’s insider,” for her hard-won all-access pass within the global culinary community, Wendy creates unforgettable food experiences in Paris. Her trusted Southern appeal, high-regard for cultural traditions and her genuinely fun style, have endeared her to Paris’ top chefs and award-winning artisans.

Paris has been her heart & home for over 20 years, and she loves sharing its hidden food gems with food curious travelers.

To be able to share the Paris food community from a truly local perspective via The Paris Kitchen™ makes for a fine line between what she does for a living and in living her life.
