Taste of the Left Bank
* This tour includes many of the same stops as our Taste of Saint-Germain tour, and therefore we do not recommend booking both.
About this neighborhood: Throughout its long history, the Left Bank has hosted the city's most prestigious educational institutions, along with an eclectic mix of galleries and boutiques. More recently, and more in keeping with our gluttonous aims, the area has seen the arrival of prize-winning cheesemongers, sweet shops and other food artisans.
What we'll taste: Hand-shaped traditional baguettes, patés and terrines from a French traiteur, artisinal cheeses from one of the most reputable cheese shops (and affineurs) in France, chocolates from a Meilleur Ouvrier de France (an MOF - the highest rank for a French chocolatier), and plenty of other surprises, including pastry. We'll also take you to one of our favorite wine shops in Paris and taste some incredible wines along with our cheeses.
Price for a small group tour: 95€ per person, including all tastings. We limit our small group tours to seven guests so that we can offer a more intimate experience and gain access to the most special (and often tiny) Parisian shops.
