Though La Grande Épicerie literally translates to “the big grocery store” in French, its size isn’t the only thing that makes this culinary emporium special. The 2,900 square meter store, located in the 7th arrondissement of Paris, is also home to 13 different restaurants and has a selection of more than 30,000 gourmet food products, many of which are made in-house.
So what does Ina Garten buy when she shops at La Grande Épicerie? Judging by her post on Instagram, in which she shared pictures of mostly pastries, the store’s patisserie is seemingly her most-shopped part of the store. However she also highlighted the produce section and made mention of the wine, so clearly, anything at La Grande Épicerie is fair game for Garten. “La Grande Épicerie is the best specialty food store in the world! It’s a full city block in the 7th and it has every imaginable wine and food you could want,” Garten wrote in her caption.
