Food & Cooking Tours
By Viator, July 2014
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!
