What edibles or food related items do you bring home from a visit to Paris?

What can you not bring into the US? I have heard the foie gras?

Anyone have the recipe for Grande Mere's Rice Pudding

I had the best rice pudding at CHEZ L'AMI and would like the recipe.
Also the rice seemed bigger and rounder?
any ideas?
thanks

Best cheese shop and bakerie in the 3rd

I have found a very nice boulanger. Crispy croissants and great bread. L'Atelier Boulanger du Marais on Rue Turenne. It has a lovely painted glass ceiling and very nice owners who put up with my french.

WORST MEAL EVER in Paris don't go

thank you John,
We sat at a big table with two other couples, one is a food reviewer for San Diego the other is a food importer from San Diego. they all had a good laugh at our trying to cut the meat. I had a plat du jour at a cafe the day before which was excellent. I think some restaurants become failures from there own success.

WORST MEAL EVER in Paris don't go

Tonite we went to ROBERT ET LOUISE and had the worst steak ever in my life.
The entrecote was so tough the steak knife they gave us did NOT cut it.
The pate appetizer was covered in rock salt and was othewise tasteless. The steak was also very salty and tasteless. The four people at our table all had LESS than memorable meals. The lamb was VERY fatty and the steaks were like shoe leather. I had a better steak at cafe du marche the night before.
They served the potatoes which were great at 8:30 then our steak did not come until 9pm!!!
Our salad never came!!! The dessert lemon meringue pie was passable.
I will put up photos tomorrow but bring your own knife if you have to eat there.
