A different take on delightful Paris

Ernest Hemingway described Paris as a "Moveable Feast"- a city in which gourmet delights await around every corner. 

But even he would have found Paris a tad sleepy on a Sunday. Many of the best bakeries, bars and restaurants are firmly shuttered on the Sabbath.

Today, more of Paris is open on a Sunday than ever before, but it can still be hard to track down a funky place for a glass of wine or a great pastry if you don't know where to look. 

Born from a love of laid back Sundays, author Yasmin Zeinab's new book Sundays in Paris is the culmination of the popular blog by the same name. It is a comprehensive city guide featuring the best places to eat, drink and explore in the City of Light.

With chapters including Coffee, Brunch, Dinner + Drinks, Cultural Attractions, Gardens + Outdoor Spots, Markets + Foodie Stops, Shopping and The Essentials, Sundays in Paris offers a lot of useful insider information. Take it from me, a long-time Paris resident.

My only complaint is the size of the book - it's a bit big for your pocket, but not big enough for for the coffee table.

All 20 of the arrondissements that spiral outwards in a clockwise direction are featured in this book.

Sundays in Paris also includes suggested full-day and half-day itineraries skewed towards the young and hip. 

Sundays In Paris by Yasmin Zeinab, was published this month. Paperback | RRP $29.99/NZD $32.99.
