Description

Meet your guide near the Louvre and begin your day like a local! Our first stop is an authentic French bakery, where you’ll get to taste some buttery French “viennoiseries” (such as “croissants”or “pain au chocolat”). As well, taste the famous baguette “Jambon Beurre,' one of the French people’s favorite “on-the-go” meals, a ham sandwich made of the fresh UNESCO listed baguette (of course) sliced open, spread with salty butter and filled with slices of delicous ham. Our next stop will be one of France’s most acclaimed French pastry chefs and chocolatiers where you’ll get to taste the fabulous Macarons, a sweet meringue-based confection, which was introduced in France by the Italian chef of Queen Catherine de Medici during the Renaissance. You’ll also get to learn about the “Meilleur Ouvrier de France” title, a unique and prestigious award granted to the best French craftsmen every four years. Then, savor some of the finest French cheeses in one of the capital’s best Cheese shops! In 1962, French President Charles de Gaulle asked, 'How can you govern a country which has two hundred and forty-six varieties of cheeses?”; Not an easy task indeed, and we’ve selected the very best ones for you! Once your taste buds have been properly acquainted, you will have time to enjoy a sit-down meal at one of our favorite wine bars — a place completely and utterly dedicated to wine lovers. You’ll get to sample authentic cheese and charcuterie with some excellent French wine to go with it. Each offering will contain something unique and compelling that the French like to call “terroir”! You’ll then get to taste a surprise dish that originates from the French cafés in the early 1900s! Craving dessert? First, we’ll go on a brief digestive stroll, so you get to explore the most famous market street of Paris which is home to the pastry shop of King Louis the XV. Your morning tour ends on a sweet note as you will visit the shop of another award-winning French craftsman, a multigenerational family-run business that created a very special brioche which you will be sure to enjoy and remember! This wonderful excursion will give you a proper and delicous taste into some of the finest culinary treats Paris has to offer.
