Outdoor Market Food Tour in Montorgueil at lunchtime (Private)
Which better place for a food tour than the district of Paris which formerly contained the city's central market. Named “Les Halles” or better: “The belly of Paris”, the whole city once came here to buy food. This market disappeared in the 1960s but its spirit remains alive along Rue Montorgueil. This is Charlotte’s paradise. A passionate foodie, she lives here and regularly walks up and down the street to enjoy its market-like atmosphere.
Before enjoying delicious homemade tastings, you will shop with Charlotte at her favorites places. A renowned cheese maker, Paris’ oldest cake shop, a high-quality butchery or a friendly wine store: all that makes the Montorgueil district so trendy and mouthwatering is a part of this food tour.
All your way up and down Rue Montorgueil, you will feel the pulse that drives the local daily life. You’ll begin this gourmet journey by visiting an Ali Baba jam grocery and the best bakery around. A fresh, fragrant and appetizing bread will be your next delight.
Not far from here, you’ll discover the component that any French meal requires… Cheeeeeeese. In a store, listed in Charlotte’s personal selection, you’ll be confronted by a wide choice of specialties which are pure sensations.
A step away from the cheese shop, you’ll discover a butchery offering tasty, 100% French origin products, coming from farms and producers with whom the storekeepers share the same sense of quality.
Rue Montorgueil has many wine stores. Charlotte will take you to THE one, where she knows which nectar to suggest to accompany your food purchases.
It’s almost time to go to Charlotte’s home but there's no question of forgetting the dessert on the way. The Stohrer shop window displays cakes since… the 18th century. This is the oldest patisserie in Paris and the creator of the yummy rum baba.
Let’s now go to Charlotte’s apartment. Be prepared to climb a few floors to reach her typical Parisian home, but the view is worth it! It is time to discover the gastronomical results of your morning market and the home-made foie gras she concocted for you. Last but not least, Charlotte will have prepared another surprise and will be happy to share her recipe with you. Bon appétit!
