Best of the Latin Quarter food tour
Friday, June 15, 2012 from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM (CEST)
About this neighborhood: Throughout its long history, the Latin Quarter has hosted the city's most prestigious educational institutions, along with an eclectic mix of students. More recently, and more in keeping with our gluttonous aims, the area has seen the arrival of prize-winning cheesemongers, chocolate makers and other food artisans.
What we'll taste: We'll start by tasting the incredible baguette made by a tireless promoter of traditional French breadmaking, We'll stick our noses into a selection of cheeses that have been aged and sold by a master fromager and taste our way through a bustling outdoor market and the surrounding artisanal shops. We'll finish on a sweet note by indulging in the creations of our favorite local chocolatiers and pastry shops. Generious tastings at every stop are included in the price.
