Gourmet Food Tour in Saint Germain des Prés
Saint 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 food artisans. This Walking Food Tour Paris, starting ideally around 11am, will begin by visiting local corner shop proud of their Frenchie’s products 100% organic and no junk! Their idea was simple: fighting junk food on French’s table.
They are passionate about farmers’ products and to know what they offer to their customers. For this reason, they travelled the France’s regions looking for the charcuterie product that will make their store unique. At this stop, you will try one of France specialty: Foie Gras! Spread on a crunchy baguette, this delight is a good starter.
Your food expert will then take you to a family business first opened in the early 19th century. They were candy’ confectioner in Aix-en-Provence but quickly focused on olives’ products. You will take the time, to taste their olive’s oils and vinegar. Such an easy way to taste the South of France!
Not far from there, your next stop will be a historic place. It is the oldest café in Paris full of history where French’ writers and intellectuals such as Rousseau, Diderot, and Verlaine used to meet. How about a little onion soup? One of France famous classic soup! But savoring it at this particular place, will take you back in time!
A walking food tour made with love to taste the yummiest food in Paris
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. You will discover one of France’s classic puffy pastry: the chou! The most difficult part of the tour will be to choose between the flavors.
