City Guide: Paris
A frozen food world made for those who love to do their sightseeing inside foreign supermarkets.
In a country known for daily farm-fresh markets and a general food obsession, it’s hard to imagine that a frozen food chain could survive, much less thrive like the popular Picard does. If you’re imagining frosty freezer-burned vegetables and diet dinner trays, you’ve got it all wrong. The flash frozen options here include a hearty bacon-wrapped turkey breast with meat and mushroom stuffing, exotic Moroccan tagines, and individual Moelleux au Chocolat, a dessert that oozes from the dark chocolate center.
