A lotta calories, that’s what. Along with stories, smiling producers, geeky facts, easy walking, more eating, more eating, more food.

Experience Paris… by Mouth

Tasting Paris is our passion, and it’s also our profession. As food writers for Paris by Mouth, it’s our job to devour delicious things and to understand what makes them special. The Wall Street Journal recently called us “the definitive blog on the city’s food and wine scene,” and we’re now using that knowledge to lead tasting tours through the most exceptional shops in Paris. Our tours run almost every day of the week, our prices are affordable, and we offer the instant gratification of online booking.

Best of Paris neighborhood food crawls

“By mouth” is the best way to experience the most gastronomically gifted neighborhoods in Paris. Whether you choose to explore Montmartre, Les Halles, the Latin Quarter or the Marais, these tours will introduce you to a wide array of delicious French treats – incredible breads, rare cheeses, luscious desserts, and other artisanal creations. We’ll show you our favorite tastes, introduce you to the delightful people who made them, and spend several hours stuffing our faces.

Price for a small group tour: 95€ per person, including all tastings. More on private tour options here.

Tour de Fromage – exploring the exceptional cheeses of France

If you’ve ever wondered why there are more than 500 different cheeses in France, how different cheeses are produced, what the impact of seasonality and aging are on cheese, and how locals typically enjoy cheese in restaurants and at home… this tour is for you. We’ll cover all this plus plenty of other cheese geekery while tasting our way through a wide variety of cheeses from renowned fromageries, all accompanied by that famous French bread and wine.

Sweet Paris: the Chocolate & Pastry Extravaganza

Developed for genuine sugar freaks, this tour skips the savory stuff and dives deep into the sweet universe of chocolate, pastry and other classic French desserts. Whether we’re tasting artisanal ice cream from a man who used to make the stuff for Queen Elizabeth, learning about the art of chocolate while tasting the wares of master chocolatiers, judging the difference between top macaron producers, or digging into the creamy creations from our favorite pâtisseries, this tour is a veritable dessert storm.

    Brenda, hello! Looking forward to meeting you, too. Bring your appetite!

  3. Nicola says:

    Ohh… I want this. Do you run tours in August when everything is closed? My husband and I will be in Paris during the last two weeks of the month.

  4. Meg says:

    Hi Nicola,
    Absolutely. August is a big time for us and there are plenty of shops that remain open. We can also help you figure out and book the handful of restaurants that are open during those weeks.
    Happy planning,

  5. Maggie says:

    I’m totally crashing a food tour in September. :)

  6. Didn’t know you did tours! We will certainly pass that info along to anyone that asks! :-)


  7. Kirsten says:

    Where is that chocolate mousse and when can I go taste it with you on a tour?

  8. Franca Bollo says:

    I may have to stop reading this site. It is too, too painful at times. Like now, after reading this and not knowing if or when I’ll be able to participate. Excuse while I go lie face-down on my bed and weep.

  9. Meg says:

    Franca, I’m so sorry! ;)

    Kirsten, the chocolate mousse is from Patrice Chapon on the rue du Bac (7th arrondissement). He always has 3-4 different flavors based on the origin of the bean – Madagascar, Cuba, etc. So, so good.

    Hi Meg,

    Finally home but missing Paris. We were pleasantly surprised to see Steve’s picture at Androuet. Wonderful tour!!!!!!!

  11. Meg says:

    Juan & Steve! I’m selfishly so glad that the volcano kept you with us a little longer. Thanks for coming – you guys were so much fun.

  12. lara dunston says:

    Thanks for the link – the tour was indeed loads of fun – how could it not be trying all that fabulous food?

    But totally agree that it’s also about the people you meet – we also met Juan and Steve on Marie Theres’s excellent Montmartre tour (also offered by Context) – very sweet guys.

    Do let us all know when your new food site has launched too!
