Best of the Latin Quarter food tour
Friday, October 12, 2012 from 3:30 PM to 6:30 PM
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 some incredible breads, before sticking our noses into a selection of cheeses that have been aged and sold by a master fromager. We'll taste our way up one of the oldest cobblestone food streets in the city before finishing on a sweet note with some of our favorite small-production macarons, plus creations from three different master chocolatiers. Generious tastings at every stop are included in the price.
