Whenever you think about French Cuisine, visions abound of crusty baguettes, steam rising from croissants, fresh goats cheeses and pastries too beautiful to eat.

The visit will begin with an introduction into French cuisine. From there your guide will introduce you to some of our favorite and world renowned, bakeries, chocolate masters, cheese stores, wine merchants and fine food boutiques. Here you will have the chance to taste a selection of sweet and savory delicacies including award winning croissants, baguettes, cheese, sea food, cream puffs, patés and much more.

Along the way, your group can enjoy the experience of sharing your favorite recipes, kitchen secrets, culinary techniques and your guide will even tell you the secret French shopping hacks for getting the best quality produce, which only real locals would know. This visit will give you a sensory experience which will give you an absolute appreciation for French gastronomy.
