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