About this tour: Few people would argue that the French are serious, and seriously skilled, when it comes to sugar. Whether you're a beginner or a practiced pastry afficianado, this tour will cover a wide range of French sweets, ranging in style from classic to iconoclastic.
What we'll taste: We'll begin with chocolate - explaining some of the basics behind its production and tasting the creations of two different master chocolatiers. Caramels and other candies come next, to be followed by viennoiserie - flaky croissants or other buttery creations. No tour would be complete without pâtisserie, so we'll show you some of the most artful and delicious desserts in this gastronomically gifted neighborhood.
Price for a small group tour: 95€ per person, including all tastings. More on private tour options here.
