How about a veal blanquette for lunch? Here's a list of restaurants in Paris where you can enjoy this flagship dish of French gastronomy!

Atraditional dish of French gastronomy, blanquette de veau is one of France's favorite dishes, and for good reason! How can you resist a dish as comforting and regressive as blanquette? As for its origins, there are two conflicting theories: one is that this family dish is the evolution of poultry brouet, a dish from the Middle Ages; the other is that it was originally a way of using leftover roast veal in a white sauce, so that nothing would go to waste.

What is certain, however, is that the precise geographical origin of blanquette de veau remains unknown, with many regions claiming it as their own, including Normandy and Poitou. Since its creation, blanquette de veau has undergone numerous variations and versions, depending on the region, which reflects its culinary traditions. In Normandy, for example, blanquette de veau is often prepared with cider and apples, while in other regions, it may be served with chanterelle mushrooms.

A tasty and refined dish, no matter how it's prepared, blanquette de veau is a convivial dish that lends itself well to dinners with family or friends. A mainstay of French cuisine, blanquette can also be enjoyed in many French restaurants in Paris. So, whether you're a lover of French gastronomy or a tourist in search of this comforting, French-style dish, here are the best addresses for restaurants in Paris where you can enjoy blanquette de veau prepared according to the rules of the art!
