I'll put in a plug for the museum card. At quite a few of the museums, including the Louvre, you have a special entrance were you can skip the worst of the queues. The trick is to buy at someplace t ...

I read an old thread on egullet where a customs guy was answering questions. He said that cheese doesn't have to be sealed, it just has to be aged enough so that it isn't runny when you cut it. I do ...

My understanding is that it isn't a problem to bring food into the EU, just the other way around when you go home. I'm sure you'll have a fabulous time. I'd much rather be there in February than in ...

Come to think of it, I always buy the figue Bonne Maman. My grandmother made fig jam and I really miss her fig tree. A good fig jam is hard to find in the US, but luckily, no so hard over here.

I would endorse the mustard at the Maille boutique (kitty-corner from the Madeleine). It is the Baskin-Robbins of mustard, with flavors that you can only buy there.

You might want to research the customs regulations regarding what foods you can bring back into the US. Off the top of my head, no fruits and no beef products. The rules about other meat products ar ...

I don't know about France, but the Carre-Four in Liege, Belgium, has fresh cranberries - as do most of the grocery stores I shop at in the Netherlands. I can't help with the pumpkin, though I prefer ...
