Bellies on Foot - The Food Tour and discovery of Paris!

If you enjoy exploring Paris via your stomach, then join La Cuisine's Food Tours in Paris! Spend three hours filling your belly and feeding your brain on a cultural and culinary food tour of Paris’s historic Les Halles area.  This venerable quarter has been long known as the ‘Belly of Paris’, stemming from the famous 1873 novel ‘Le Ventre de Paris’ by Émile Zola.

Take a tour through time, retracing the mysteries and hidden culinary secrets of the oldest food market in Europe.
During the tour we will explore the foundations of the French culinary scene, from the oldest and most characterful cooking equipment store, to some of the oldest French delicacies you can imagine: fromage to foie gras, sweets to meats !
Along the tour we will collect delicacies from each store that we will sample and enjoy with a glass of wine back at the school!

Au menu :

1-Our favourite historical French cooking equipment store
2-Our favourite foie gras boutique 
3-Our favourite fromage store
4-Our favourite French pâtisserie–boulangerie
5-Our favourite boucherie-charcuterie 
6-A stop at Saint Eustache church – the heart of the French Market until 1953

 

 

Please note that this Paris food tour operates outside for the majority of the time. We will spend approx 2.5 hours on foot with approximately 3.2 kilometers /2 miles of walking, so you will want to dress comfortably and appropriately! We intend to have a typically Parisian experience from shopping to transport via metro (tickets provided).
