Enjoy this delicious 3-hour private food tasting tour with wine and cider, in the beautiful neighborhood of Le Marais in Paris. Le Marais is perhaps the best-preserved arrondissement of Paris. Untouched by Haussman’s renovations, it is made up of a labyrinth of cobbled streets, hidden gems and crooked alleyways. Named for the marshland it was originally built on, it is steeped in medieval history, and was the headquarters of the Knights Templar. Today it is a trendy neighborhood – popular with fashionistas and foodies!
Your tour meets in the heart of Le Marais. Your expert English-speaking guide will introduce the tour, whetting your appetite for what is to come. Your first tasting will be a classic patisserie: a sweet cream puff pastry, or choux (meaning little cabbage) followed by the all-important bakery! Arrive at a typical Parisian boulangerie to pick up your freshly baked baguettes, followed by charcuterie – a variety of mouth-wateringly delicious French cheeses. Enjoy with a glass of perfectly paired French wine.
Next: try a tasty Galette with a glass of cider. This is a flat buckwheat pancake with delectable fillings like melted cheese and ham, sauteed spinach and a runny fried egg, a very popular lunch time snack for Parisians.
No trip to Paris is complete without sampling the world famous falafels on the buzzing Rue de Rosiers. Le Marais was also the Jewish quarter and Rue des Rosiers, with its vibrant atmosphere, is lined with kosher food shops, take out joints and sit down restaurants. A not to be missed experience.
Your gastronomic tour ends with a well deserved sit down at a local restaurant for a classic bowl of deliciously comforting French Onion Soup with cheese and crusty croutons! This is where your guide will leave you, to relax and enjoy the rest of your evening.
