Experience traditional recipes and methods for preparing French cuisine and indulge your passion for cheese, pastries, chocolate and wine as you explore Paris. Fine food, wine, and the gourmet spirit are at the very heart of French culture, and French joie de vivre is never so in evidence as when talking about food, with the philosophy of truly savoring a little of the things you love. Discover the taste of Paris while strolling along the Left Bank and through the Latin Quarter to visit the market, cheese shop, patisserie, and foie gras specialist, focusing on ingredients and preparation of fresh seasonal produce and recipes.

The fromagerie (cheese shop) is another world, with an astounding range of regional varieties  accompanied by quince paste, green tomato jam, and fabulous bread. Make your selection and head up to the heart of the Latin Quarter, packed with colorful historic shops and restaurants, and the former home of writer Ernest Hemingway, who wrote in his ode to Paris, A Moveable Feast: "This is how Paris was in the early days when we were very poor and very happy". Finish at the Pâté de foie gras speciality shop with a decadent tasting of this delicacy.

Those with a sweet tooth may prefer to taste gourmet chocolate and pastries, walking through lovely Parisian neighborhoods. Feeling creative? Make your own fine pastries and desserts, from ice cream (geranium, lavender, chocolate, or caramel) to truffles or learn the secret of the prized French macaroon.

Sip champagne as you cruise along the Seine, or visit the magnificent vineyards and world class cellars of the Champagne region including Moet and Chandon, Mumm and Reims, to find out where all those happy bubbles come from.

Stroll along the left or right bank for a taste of authentic Parisian wine and bar culture as you encounter the sophisticated flavors and variety of French wines, and perhaps even become a connoisseur!
