If you cannot afford dinner in a Michelin starred restaurant or you do not have the patience to wait half a year for a table at the latest hip spot in Paris, we may have a little secret to share with you.
Many of the best chefs from the top restaurants buy their ingredients directly from Sicilian expert Cedric Casanova, who used to be a tightrope walker in Cirque du Soleil before becoming “the master of olive oil”. In his little shop one can find his famous olive oil of course, but also olives, capers, tuna caviar, sun-dried tomatoes from Sicily, and other such dainties.

It is good to know as well that Monsieur Casanova, buoyed by the popularity of his establishment, decided he should also provide the opportunity to eat lunch or dinner there. Unfortunately, it is necessary to make reservations over a month in advance, as there is only room for 7 people. Although that may seem like a long time, it still beats having to wait for half a year!
