Dessert Storm chocolate & pastry tour (with Barbra Austin)
Wednesday, March 28, 2012 from 4:00 PM to 7:00 PM (CEST)
About this tour: Developed for genuine sugar freaks, this tour skips over the savory stuff and dives deep into the sweet universe of chocolate, pastry and other classic French desserts. Whether we're tasting salted butter caramel 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.
A sampling of treats (shops and selections will vary):
Delicate macarons, ready to dissolve on your tongue.
A bar of single origin chocolate mousses.
Impeccably presented pastries.
Handmade guimauves - moist little marshmallows flavored with cassis.
Nearby attractions: The Luxembourg Gardens, the Musée d'Orsay, Le Bon Marché department store & La Grande Epicerie gourmet supermarket.
