The First Food Tour I ever Lead Alone Eat Like The French! June 14, 2023

A Letter From Our Founding Food Tour Guide

Bonjour!

I’m Tris, the passionate creator behind “Eat Like the French” your friendly food tour guide for Paris, unraveling the delicious mysteries of Parisian cuisine. Despite being British by birth, my heart was forever stolen by the magic of French cooking when I first tasted its wonders during a family holiday at the tender age of 8. Fast forward to today, and I’ve proudly called France my home for over a decade.

Living in France, speaking the language, and having trained as a chef in the hallowed kitchens of Paris, I bring a distinctive perspective on how to truly “Eat Like the French.” I understand the nuances that may bewilder those unfamiliar with French gastronomy and customs, and I’m here to be your culinary compass through the intricacies of it all.

My career in the kitchen started when I was 13, I worked in the kitchen of a local pub in the UK where I chopped chips and prepped vegetables for service. We moved to France with my parents when I was 16 and by the time I was 18, working in a kitchen was all I wanted to do. I quit school avoided going to university. Instead I moved to Paris armed with a book given to me by my parents of the 50 best restaurants in Paris. I called every restaurant and hotel in the book until I got myself an interview at the Ritz Hotel. The rest is history, I worked in Michelin starred restaurants around France and the UK until the lifestyle took it’s toll on me and I left my life as a chef.

I left the kitchen, what is now many years ago to chase a career in tech. I was lucky to enjoy a successful career working as a recruiter starting and building several communities and companies but eventually that too left me burnt out. I realised, I was hungry to return to working with food. In the spring of 2023 I found a job ad looking for ex-chefs who wanted to lead food tours in Paris. I fell in love immediately with the work, I have always dreamed of creating food content and helping people understand more about french food. It didn’t turn out as I expected, you can read more about that in a series of blogs I wrote on this site. I realised how most food tour companies are scamming their clients. However, it was this unique experience that lead me to realise I had the skills to build a better food tour company here in the city I love and call home, Paris.

These days, my mission is to share the love and knowledge of French cuisine by leading immersive Food Tours around the enchanting streets of Paris. Whether you’re planning a visit to the City of Lights or already savouring life in France, I’m here to be your culinary ally.

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.

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.

A fantastic day with Chef Tris

July 22, 2023

Chef Tris was an amazing guide and had a wealth of knowledge about the food scene in Paris. He helped us get a great feel for Julia Child’s neighborhood and the Parisian environment where she lived. We became baguette “experts” learning about the it’s creation and how to identify a great bakery. Tris taught us how to recognize an authentic, handmade baguette. We are still using what he taught us to find authentic French baguettes. A must do trip for anyone who loves food.
