Gourmet Food Tour in St-Germain-des-Prés (Dinner Time)
If elegance should be defined in France, then Saint-Germain-des-Prés would be its exact description. This historical neighborhood, filled with beautiful churches and buildings, holds many anecdotes and a variety of passionate local food artisans.
Starting at 5pm, you begin with the visit of a lovely 18th century building with its courtyard connected to a nice deli in the back. Alexandra is its owner and a complete foodie. Enjoy her unique specialties that she finds from French producers whose she knows quality requirements. Authentic oils and vinegars, chocolate produced by the oldest French chocolate brand or delicious Foie Gras are only some of her successes. Enjoy her delights on a crunchy baguette!
Afterwards, your Welcomer will lead the way to a splendid butcher shop. The owner raises his own cattle and produces top-notch quality and trustworthy meat. You will have the honor of trying some of this shop bestsellers such as its dried beef meat. Your host will pair for you a carefully chosen wine and a savory tartare.
On your way to your next stop, your Welcomer will have you stopped in a off-the-beaten-track pastry shop, where “éclairs” are presented like jewels in a ring box. You will be able to choose your favorite flavor, and that will be the harshest part of the tour.
Next destination is Saint Germain Market with its shops. Through all those colorful stands, there are two main shops for your to not miss. So, let’s first try southwest of France specialty which is black pork meat. Then, second shop has exceptional cheese on famous executive chefs’ menus. From cow cheese from the Lyon region, fresh and mellow, to a matured cooked cheese from the Alps, and turophiles, you will be thrilled!
Time to go for dessert, isn’t it? It will thus be the moment to savor the “éclairs” you already purchased. What a treat to end this delicious dinner food tour! And if your appetite is still not satisfied yet – which we doubt – your Welcomer will be able to suggest you further perfect addresses to go on discoveries on your own!
