Eric Goujou's Paris Essentials

Marc J. Sievers

IMG_3792.jpg

When I was in Paris earlier this year putting the final touches on my new book, I couldn’t wait to visit my dear friend Eric Goujou at his gorgeous shop, La Tuile à Loup! Filled with beautiful, handcrafted French ceramics, La Tuile à Loup is a regular stop for many of the world’s most well-known tastemakers. I own several of his pieces and I love how much personality they bring to a room or a table! Eric himself has impeccable taste, so I wanted to learn a bit more about his everyday life in Paris and his favorite Parisian spots. Take notes for your next Paris adventure!

What is your house meal?

Orange-Braised Carrots and Parsnips. Most of my friends in Paris are vegetarian and I have a few intolerances. 

There is a stew from one of Ina Garten's books called The Barefoot Contessa Foolproof, which I love and I do my own version. Because I do not know how to follow a recipe, I always do an interpretation.   Alternatively, I will cook fish. In France it is a very easy go-to meal. 

A fresh fish (Sea Bass, Turbot, John Dory, Dorado) with olive oil, salt and pepper in the oven for about 20-30 minutes. Served with roasted veggies. I cook this at least twice a week. 

 How would you describe your entertaining style?

My entertaining style might look formal at first because being a perfectionist, I like to do things just the way I envisioned it in my mind. Nevertheless, it is essential that people feel at ease when they sit around the table. I love to set a table.
