You may not be able to shop the markets of Paris right now... but you can still take some inspiration to your own brunch table.

If there'sanything better than Paris in the spring, It's Paris in the fall, when the markets are overflowing with fresh produceand inspiration. Author and Beaucoup Bakery founder Jackie Kai Ellis recently uprooted from Vancouver to make beloved Paris her home base, and has embraced Parisian life like a pro, spending lazy Sundays whipping up butter-laden breakfasts and afternoons wandering from patisserie to patisserie. We asked Ellis to share her secrets for a market-inspired brunch to bring a little taste of Paris home, and she delivered: think savoury gougÃ¨res and decadant roasted pears… best paired with a mimosa, of course. Vive la France.
