Get to know the Food and the Neighbourhood – Highly Recommend!

March 26, 2024

We toured with Chef Tris – it was a great day with such good information – we learned more about the backstory of French bread with him than we did the next day when we took a french bread baking class. We sat at a cafe and had some croissants, went and learned more about the food labeling in France in a little specialty shop. Walked up some hilly roads with the usual cobblestones. Very quaint. It likely goes without saying to wear good shoes. Then we finished it off at the restaurant in very cozy quarters – but our group got along so well we didn’t mind being seated rubbing shoulders. The lunch was really fabulous – with cheese, wine, really delicious escargot, beef bourguignon, bread. We learned the history of the area and the food we were eating. Topped it off outside with macaroon and champagne. Truly a wonderful experience.

Amazing Food Tour

March 11, 2024

We had the most incredible afternoon with the most delicious Escargot, and Beef Bourguignon. Our guide Chef Tris was beyond amazing. This is a most when visiting Paris. I highly recommend doing it at the beginning of your trip.

Uniquely satisfying slice of food, wine and Parisian life. Unforgettable

August 6, 2023

Tris (AKA The Broke Brit in Paris) was outstanding. Together we learnt so much about how food, politics and Parisian culture are firmly entwined. We were very lucky the all the others on our tour were awesome, all from various places and backgrounds but all united by a passion for food (and wine). As the food tasting (and wine) flowed so did the enjoyment. Stories were shared amongst the group. Laughter and even song from a local singer. An interesting and intimate way to learn and experience a French food focused Paris.
