What do you like most about Café Fauna? Why have breakfast there with your daughter?


The Scandinavian atmosphere literally takes us on a journey, while at the same time it feels like home. The food is delicious and the drinks exquisite. Inaya and I usually have the cinnamon knot, which is as good as in Sweden, and a soft-boiled egg each, as well as, of course, a babyccino for my daughter - she loves it and it's not easy to find one everywhere - and an oat milk latte for me. Special mention for the staff, always very attentive and efficient.

At first glance, one wouldn't think that Galerie Perrotin could be particularly kid-friendly. Why choose this gallery over another?


I'm often in the area, and I usually stop by the gallery to see the current exhibition (with or without my daughter). I particularly like the selection of artists, the courtyard is sublime, and the rooms are spacious – you can easily stroll around with a stroller, a real plus for a mom with a young child. There's also a bookstore with children's books, the perfect place to introduce my daughter to contemporary art through both the exhibited works and the available books.

What are your favorite dishes at Bao Express? Do you have an anecdote to share with us about this address?


When I go to Bao Express, my must-tries are the eggplant hong shaho and the shrimp toast, a real treat! Once, when dessert time came, we ordered a mini chocolate bao, a small steamed brioche usually paired with savory fillings. My daughter Dalia observed the dish with suspicion; she was convinced it was a savory dish and refused to try it, despite my assurances that it was a dessert. After a few minutes of negotiation, her curiosity finally got the better of her. Her reaction was immediate, her eyes wide with pleasure and surprise. Since then, she still hasn't grasped that it's a dessert, and orders it as soon as we sit down at a table!

Do you share your love of flowers and bouquets with your daughters? How do Atelier Ko's creations inspire you? Do you always compose your own bouquets?


I've passed on my love of flowers to my daughters from an early age, so I buy them every week and always have some at home! We love going to Atelier Ko, where we find flowers, we don't see everywhere and the arrangements are always surprising, a real work of passionate artistry. When I'm with my daughters, we usually create our floral arrangements together, according to our tastes and desires of the moment; I love to get them involved, to see them choosing the flowers and colors, and the result is always original and successful.

How did you discover Miyam grocery store? Why do you like shopping there with your kids in particular?


I discovered Miyam by chance a few years ago, simply by strolling around the neighborhood. Since then, I've been going back regularly, especially for the Savary flan and smoked stracciatella, which are of the highest quality and hard to find elsewhere. My daughters don't miss a chance to go there, as there are wooden mini-caddies available for the kids, so they can help with the shopping while playing mom - they love it!

What makes the Square des Batignolles such a great place for a family stroll? What are your favorite games and activities there?


This park is a real haven of peace, and there's nothing better for a family afternoon out just a stone's throw from home. We're used to strolling here whatever the season. There are several play areas adapted to children's ages, and the famous carousel is impossible to miss without a ride. It's been our little ritual for years with Inaya and more recently with Dalia. The ride always ends with a quick hello for the swans, geese and, of course, ducks, of which there are many around the pond.;
