Gastronomy tour in historical Paris!

Paris, France

Experience hosted by Jessica

2.5 hours
Includes food, drinks
Up to 6 people
Hosted in English

What you'll do

The history of food and wine is the history of France. As we wander through the 'belly of Paris' I'll point out some historical gems connected with eating and drinking in the capital. We'll eat and drink seasonal, local and traditionally made French food.
We walk from store to boulangerie to boutique to wine cellar, and discuss the history of cheese, the roots of the restaurant, and the French methods of food production. Seasonality and regionalism are so important in French cuisine, so they are the rules we follow too!
I'll explain methods, traditions, trends and restaurant life in the capital, and the social, cultural and environmental impacts of food in modern France. The tasty examples of course help understanding! It's amazing to hear your stories and food experiences too, and there is always space for discussion, dialogue, exchange! Looking forward to meeting my fellow foodies from around the globe.

If my dates don't fit with your dates, feel free to get in touch and we can figure out a tour date together!

This is a small group of no more than six, so be prepared to meet and mingle with the other guests in the group!

I’m passionate about food and drink - I've been working in food for over 12 years (running restaurants, selling cheese, sourcing vegetables, selling wine) and I focus on responsibly sourced, local and exceptional food and drink! I have a background in natural wine, and I am ready to share years of knowledge in food with my fellow foodies from around the globe!
I am a history lover, and I think understanding history can change your connection to a place. Explore the historical centre and get to know French gastronomy better, through stories & food!

An exciting way to view the food culture combining a deep knowledge of French food with the social forces that created this world class cuisine. Jess delivered this info in a egalitarian manner that made the experience very enjoyable and of course the food and wine were great.

Jess was amazing, insightful, and so incredibly warm. I am so glad to have done this experience on my trip. A real soak into Paris’ food, culture, and history. Oh and I made some lovely friends during the experience and we ended up hanging out the entire night!

AMAZING! Jessica is bubbly and personable. She is extremely knowledgable about all things food, and her tour included history, humour, and delicious classic Parisian food. Would go on another tour with her in a heartbeat!

Jess is great!! She goes above and beyond for all the people in her group!! A friend and I got lost, but were seamlessly able to hop into her tour when we found our meeting spot!! I loved all the tidbits of history and French culture! As well the food choices are amazing!! She speaks from her heart and you can tell that the French cuisine and culture mean a lot to her!! If you’ve got a hankering for good food and good company, sign up for this tour!
