Are some of your most treasured travel memories food-related?
Do you often search out something unusual and edible to bring home in your suitcase?
Are you looking for a ‘baneton' or a ‘bassine de confiture en cuivre’? Or want to know what they are?
Do you have half a day spare to discover some great addresses in Paris?
If you answer yes, then this morning tour might be right up your gluten free street.
After giving gluten free baking lessons in my kitchen just outside Paris and encouraging students to visit my favourite baking shops, bakeries and coffee shops in Paris, I have decided to offer a guided tour of some of the parts of the city most interesting for a keen gluten free baker (and eater!).
On this morning walk we will visit:
- a typical outdoor market selling fresh produce
- a shop where you can buy specialist baking ingredients
- a bookshop specialising in cookery books (with an impressive English section too!)
- a kitchenware store dating from 1820 where Julia Child used to shop
- a gluten free boulangerie and a gluten free patisserie
- an Italian gelato shop serving GF gelato in GF cones
While we will time to have a quick look around the shops (to make purchases for a post-walk picnic peut-être?) and a coffee stop will be scheduled into the morning, any serious browsing and shopping will have to be done after the walk or we just won’t make it to all the great places I have planned for you!
This tour does not provide tastings or include refreshments in the price - I’d prefer you to be able to choose and enjoy your gluten free goodies at your leisure after the tour. There will however be a coffee stop midway through the walk. A map featuring all the places we visit will be provided for you to keep. It does involve 1 hour total walking time - approx 5km distance - so please wear comfortable shoes and bring an umbrella/raincoat if necessary. The walk is never cancelled due to rain!
Fee for this tour 09h15 - 12h30 is €50 per person. Max number is 5. If you wish to have a private tour on a day/time to suit you then please email me firstname.lastname@example.org. And if you have time for a gluten free baking lesson while you're in Paris then check out my blog for class details!
