About this neighborhood: Saint-Germain is a destination for visitors from all around the world who come to shop and (most importantly) to eat. For this tour, we’ll be exploring some of the tiniest and most special food shops in this gastronomically-gifted neighborhood.
What we’ll taste: Hand-shaped breads and buttery pastries from a wood-burning oven, traditional charcuterie from a charismatic butcher, artisinal cheeses from all over France, chocolates from a Meilleur Ouvrier de France (an MOF – the highest rank for a French chocolatier), and sweets from an acclaimed pastry chef. We’ll also take you to one of our favorite wine shops in Paris where we will sit and enjoy some incredible wines with our cheese and charcuterie.
