Tour Description

The Les Halles quarter of Paris is traditionally known as ‘the belly of Paris’. Once home to the huge, teeming food market that fed the city each day, today it remains a mecca for food lovers, the streets lined with specialty food stores, restaurants, cafés and kitchen supplies. We’ll join the locals as they shop for their daily groceries, stopping along the way at our specially selected boutiques.

Start your morning at a local boulangerie, in typical French style with a coffee and a delicious buttery croissant. We’ll pick up some traditional baguettes here to enjoy later in the tour. As we stroll along our favorite street, you’ll sample tasty artisanal cheeses from around France in a traditional, local fromagerie, savor cured meats in a charcuterie, and choose your favorite pastries at the oldest (and possibly most beautiful) patisserie in Paris, founded by the Queen’s baker in 1730.

Your expert guide will also point out a centuries-old oyster house (the oysters were originally rushed to Paris from the coast by horse) as well as traditional butchers, fishmongers and grocers as you wander along this fascinating street. For the cooks amongst you, don’t miss the wonderful suppliers of kitchenware, including one of the oldest cuisine stores in Paris.

You can opt to end your tour at an award-winning wine bar, where we will pair the foods we have selected during the tour with a flight of top class French wines served by an expert sommelier. Learn about the differences between the French wine regions, sample wines from three different appellations, and discover how to pair each wine with your food. Your gourmet tour concludes with a typical picnic style lunch with wine, the perfect way to end a morning of gastronomic discoveries and delights.
