My name is Helen and I am owner and creator of London Meets Paris. The blog was born out of my passion for Paris, a love of travel, good food, cooking and baking and London, where I’m from.
My love affair with Paris began the very first time I visited the city a long time ago and has only intensified with the passing of time and with every visit. In this blog, I will share my favourite Parisian and London addresses on where to stay, eat, drink, places of interest and things to do.
I have been cooking and creating recipes ever since I was little. I gained an A in my O Level Food Technology at high school however a career in food never materialised. My life took on a different path but never far from my mind was the dream that one day I’d be writing about food and now I am so excited that through my blog, this dream is a happy reality. I get to share with you recipes that I love and reviews of all my favourite London and Parisian restaurants. I recently attended a Food Journalism course at City Lit in London and will be attempting to learn French!! I am a proud Mum to four wonderful children and wife to another big kid – my husband.
Food is evocative, it is so closely intertwined with life itself both sustaining us and creating wonderful sensory experiences and memories. I am so passionate about all these things and I hope to share this passion with you through my blog taking you on a visual, sensual and culinary journey through my city and the city that is so close to my heart, Paris by exploring and writing about restaurants and hotels.
This blog isn’t just about food though, it’s about so much more, it’s about all the things that I enjoy in life, things that put a smile on my face and a spring in my step.
When I am not writing or baking, I can be found at the gym, walking or reading especially about all things Paris.
