Gourmet Food Tour in St Germain (Lunch Time)
St Germain represents the French elegance in every way in Paris. It is an unmissable neighborhood with beautiful churches and buildings, many stories and all sorts of quality restaurants. This Walking Food Tour Paris, starting ideally around 11am, will begin by visiting a place that quite summarizes the spirit of the district: a beautiful 18th century mansion where the courtyard gives access to a very pretty deli.
Alexandra is the keeper of this deli and a complete food Lover. You will enjoy her unique specialties that she collects from local small producers with very high standards. Genuine nuts oils, divine blackcurrant butter or delicious Foie Gras are only some of her best sellers. She will spread some of her delights on a crunchy baguette just for you!
Your food expert will then take you to a luxurious butcher shop. The owner raises his own cattle and produces very high quality and reputable meat. France’s biggest head chefs use his products. You will be delighted to try his best sellers such as his dried beef meat. During a nice pause, you'll enjoy a savory paired of food and wine, to better experience an unique tartare.
The Saint Germain Market is your following destination. Shops are numerous, but your food expert will show you two unescapable shops. The first one takes you to a journey in the gastronomy of southwest of France. The specialty there is black pork meat products, where hog herds are raised with the respect to natural resources. The second shop offers cheese found in famous executive chefs’ restaurants. All of its specialty will have you stirring from a Loire Valley goat milk cheese, fresh and mellow, to a matured cooked cow cheese from the Alps.
A Food Tour without dessert is like a beauty with one eye. That's why you'll end your tasting with a typical french pastry coming from a local bakery. Whether it's a chocolate eclair or a mouthwatering lemon curd tart, it will be a perfect ending.
You're still hungry after this walking food tour? In that case (very unlikely, by the way, after such a lunch), your Welcomer will indicate you the way to an attractive delicatessen where to taste on your own some Mediterranean pleasures, such as the delicate Provence calisson. Their little cakes of several centuries old little, pairing sugar and melon, will awaken your palate with an acidulated flavor of sunny Provence fruits.
