For the classic French food lover who enjoys exploring Paris infused with French gastronomy history, this is the cultural experience for you.
Join us for three hours as we taste our way through one of the most historic food neighbourhood of the city – Les Halles and Rue Montorgueil. Long nick-named the ‘Belly of Paris’ thanks to Emile Zola’s famous 1873 novel ‘Le Ventre de Paris’, the area forms the foundation of the Parisian gastronomic scene.
Working our way through the bustling streets housing some of France’s oldest and most charming boutiques we will sample many specialty items from the historic shops of the oldest foodineighborhood of Paris!
Au menu :
From one of our favorite French cooking equipment stores, to one of the oldest Foie Gras Epiceries in the city, to visiting a typical French Fromager! No tasting is complete without a bit of ‘saucisse’ and charcuterie from our favourite Boucherie-Charcuterie. We will visit one of our favourite Boulangeries to collect that wonderful French Bread to enjoy with our feast! Of course no French food tasting is complete without a stop at the oldest Patisserie in Paris. We finish off our adventures at our favorite local wine bar!
From start to finish, a sensory overload of French Gastronomy enjoyment along with French Food History in the heart of Paris!
