Sweet & Chocolate in Paris – Family Walking Tour (Private)
This playful Paris chocolate tour is a unique combination of History and French sweet tastings in the elegant district of Saint-Germain-des-Près. During this 2-hour 30 stroll, your Welcomer will share thrilling anecdotes while your kids will need to find answers to (easy) riddles about the places you will be visiting for your yummy tastings.
Your starting point is at the Saint Germain des Pres Church where your Welcomer will offer you a first tasting: a chouquette. This French specialty, a baked and fluffy pastry consist of small-sized dough sprinkled with pearl sugar…. simple but delicious!
You will then visit a 200-year-old chocolate factory that specializes in high quality chocolates. Taste what Napoleon and Queen Marie-Antoinette savored since they were usual clients for this brand formed in 1779!
Let’s now visit the Paradise of macarons. This cookie made of almonds was born in Italy and travelled to France with the chef of Catherine de Medicis. Since then, this pastry has become one of the most famous French pastries in the world. You can find it in many flavours but it always keeps its round form.
The following tasting will be at a Chocolate Mousse Bar offering mousses made with chocolates from all over the world. This is the perfect occasion to experience a new chocolate texture while learning about cocoa in general!
From there, follow your Welcomer to what is reputed to be the temple of jam! With hundreds of different flavors to taste, we guarantee you will love this place. From simple ingredients to complex combinations, you can find all types of tastes, even salty!
It’s Toffee time! But not just any toffee. Get ready to taste the award-winning best caramel in France!
A Paris chocolate tour tour without a traditional French waffle is meaningless. This dessert, traditionally from Lille, was General Charles De Gaulle’s favorite. You will visit a boutique opened since 1849 that produces thin, ever so fine waffles filled with different flavors; vanilla, raspberry blackcurrant or even caramel.
Your next boutique is one that dates back from 1830 and has kept its delicate recipe of “calissons”: a crushed mixture of candied melons and almonds of Provence placed on a sheet of unleavened bread and covered with a thin layer of royal frosting.
Time now to travel to Brittany and taste the “kouign amann”, which means “butter cake” in Breton. The recipe becomes evident at your first bite. For Bretons, this desert can come head to head with the crêpes.
By now, you have learned enough about sweets and chocolates. Your kids are ready to customize their own chocolate bar! Your last stop is at a chocolate shop where a whole universe of chocolate awaits your young chefs. With a large selection of toppings, they will be able to design their dream chocolate bar! But it doesn’t end here. There is one more form of chocolate you need to taste to finish in beauty: A delicious chocolate drink that can be either warm or cold.
