E.Dehillerin is definitely one of my top 10 favourite shop in the world.
This little quaint shop is located in Paris (not far from the Louvre museum). If you take the metro, it is easiest if you stop at the Louvre-Rivoli metro. From there, head straight along Rue du Louvre and you will see the shop on your right (rue Coquillière)
So, what does this shop sells?
They sell everything and anything to do with kitchen and pastry tools and cookware. If you are into baking and cooking, you will LOVE this place. They have an amazing range of copper-pots and cast iron products.
Unlike other kitchenware shops, this place is like an organise mess. Why do I say so? Going into the shop feels like you are transported back to the previous century. Things are scattered all over the place. You’ll find goods all over the floor and some are hung on the ceiling. But, if you ask any of the assistant in the shop, they will be able to easily locate the items you are asking for.
I know many people find this arrangements to be a bit daunting. But, I love it. It’s like a treasure cove. I could easily spend 2-3 hours going thru item by item and not get bored. They also stock my favourite Staub !!!
Talking about this place makes me miss it so much already. One big tip for you guys heading there, PLEASE go during NON-peak hours. I usually go there on weekday early morning and gets plenty of attention from the assistants. Most of them can speak English but can be a tad impatient. Don’t go during weekend. It’s a nightmare to get any service / attention.
Have fun shopping ! BTW, you can also order online if you want.
