Our passion is simple: to share with our patrons the flavors of the Paris we know and
love—the family-run food shops, the off-the-beaten-track gems of daily Paris life, and the ʻin the knowʼ artisanal offerings that we’ve discovered, one at a time.
Flavors of Paris is not just about new taste sensations—itʼs about the unforgettable theatre of the French love of food, as the Parisians themselves live it, and as they weigh the dayʼs pleasures of the table.
Launching Flavors of Paris was an easy choice for the founder, Lisa Rankin because the company combines all of Lisa’s passions . . . her love of Paris, French culture, and great food and wine.
Ever since she was a little tike in Canada, Lisa has had a passion for Paris, and all things Parisian. Maybe it began with the Madeleine books that she read when she was little and was captivated by the stories and the drawings. An artist at heart; food for Lisa is more than sustenance, it is a form of artistic creation, of pleasure, a way to share and socialize, and discover other cultures.
