Bubbly and friendly; Amanda is a larger than life American who, after studying at a Parisian culinary school and having a jolly stint in Ireland, has returned to grace the Parisian population with her delicious doughnut delights. Her business, Boneshaker doughnuts, sells mouth-wateringly tasty patisseries of doughy goodness. Combining traditional French patisserie techniques with innovative flavour combinations inspired by her colourful travel background, your will power will be tested to the limit if you plan on only taking one doughnut. Boneshaker doughnuts temporarily took up shop at The Beans On Fire, alongside O Coffeeshop; the perfect business partnership to guarantee the perfect doughnut/ coffee partnership. But start loosening your belts guys, as Boneshaker is about to embark on their solo career and open their own doughnut shop very soon! (Read on to find out more!) After living in Paris since the early 2000’s, Amanda calls this city her own, so to discover a little of a Parisians’ Paris, read on.

View

I love the view from the Sacre Coeur. It is our neighbourhood so I have a fond spot for that area. 

Restaurant

Juveniles Wine bar is my husband and I’s favourite French bistro. They serve fantastic traditional food and change the menu regularly, so you can never get bored of their delicious dishes!

 

Just opened

(Amanda struggled to think of something, so INSIDR is going to use this space to unashamedly promote her new doughnut shop!)

Boneshaker doughnuts, a small batch doughnut shop will be opening on 9th July at 77 rue d’Aboukir, 75002. So if you want a mind-blowingly good doughnut, get in line guys (alongside the INSIDR team), at Amanda's brand new shop! 

Favourite tourist spot

I have lots of favourites! I love to walk in the Tuileries gardens, or in the beautiful garden of the Rodin museum. A trip to Jacques Genin chocolate shop is also a fun touristy activity! I also love to grab a falafel on Rue des Rosiers!
