9 French recipes you must try while enjoying Emily in Paris this weekend

Emily in Paris Fans have been eagerly awaiting the release of Season 3, especially since the Season 2 finale left us with such a cliffhanger. Protagonist Emily, who originally moved to Paris to work for the marketing company Savoir, was suddenly faced with several decisions that could decide her future in France. For one, Emily must decide whether to stick with savoir and follow the path she’s wanted all her life, or embrace a new, exciting opportunity that would keep her in Paris longer than she ever anticipated. She must also decide what to do with her love life: continue dating the kind, devoted Alfie from London or embrace her love for Gabriel, the man who is dating one of Emily’s best friends.

With Season 3 premiering on Wednesday, December 21, 2022, we may finally have some of the answers we’ve been waiting for. While there’s a lot of drama to iron out, fans will also be able to enjoy the essence of Paris that the series presents so well, with elements like Parisian fashion, the city’s scenery, and especially tasty French kitchen.
