Visiting E. Dehillerin, the fine cookware store in Paris, is like visiting Disneyland for those whose first love is cooking

Friends are mystified and colleagues appalled. The highlight of my Paris trip was a visit to E. Dehillerin, a no-frills bartan ki dukan in the 1st arrondissement, which has been selling fine cookware since 1820. The floor-to-ceiling shelves lining the narrow aisles were chock-ablock with stuff. I was going potty. My best buy was this inspiring copper saucepan by Mauviel, simply the best money can buy. Of course, at 103 euros, it’s not cheap. The haul includes a copper sauté pan, ramekins, and a cocotte—a traditional enamelled cast iron pot which locks in the flavours. The crime reporter from Trivandrum accompanying me couldn’t get over it. It’s criminal, he concluded.
