Overview

You will visit small artisanal shops that the locals know and love for tastings of their specialty items, including seasonal specialties. Step back in time and sample a delicious pain au chocolate from a viennoiserie shop, founded in 1928 and hasn't changed since. Visit the boutique of the inventor of salted butter caramel and sample some of his melt-in-your-mouth creations, stop in at a fine food shop for candies and sweet spreads from Provence and finish with a delectable chocolate from one of the most famous chocolate-making families in France.

Your sweet tooth will be more than satiated after tasting caramels from the originator of salted butter caramels, to homemade viennoiseries, chocolate, and candies from Provence.

I was so excited to go on the Flavors of Paris Sweet Tour because I am a huge fan of Parisian pastries and wanted to learn more about them while taking a casual walk around the Saint-Germain neighborhood. (I've been here for a couple of months and Paris is extremely walkable and it's always helpful to walk off some of the drowsiness from sweets.) I enjoyed Lisa's knowledge and experience working with the vendors -- you could clearly see that there is a lot of trust between them. The first stop was a small family-owned Viennoiserie, which I didn't know much about before this tour. We then got to sample a lovely selection of candies, jams, and vinaigrettes from Provence, which look like perfect souvenirs for family. Our last stop was at a bakery with an ice cream stand. The portions were nicely sized to keep the tour going to multiple stops. I would also recommend talking to Lisa about any preferences you might have if there are sweets that you're more interested in!

Best guide we have ever had. Friendly and personable. Explained things clearly and asked for our likes and dislikes with food choices. Took all time needed. Knew a great deal about food and wine and shared insights. Knew the store owners we visited and they seemed truly happy to see her.

We really enjoyed the tour! Discovering small shops that sell unique "gourmanderies" was awesome and having Lisa as a guide helped us to really embrace the French spirit of sweet tasting. Her kindness really made the difference!

I had a wonderful experience on the tour. The treats were delicious and Lisa was such a lovely guide. It was definitely one of the highlights of my trip to Paris.

What's not to like right? But it's so much more than just getting to eat the best sweets. Ludovic takes you on this yummy journey and you also get a few treats to take home. Really worthwhile. We especially love the Apple (wish I could post a photo here). Looked like a real apple only the outside was white chocolate died green, dark chocolate stem, inside was a fantastic filling (we thought it was similar to key lime pie-both consistency & flavor but maybe more of an apple flavor). In the bottom was a crumb crust. I cannot describe it well enough to tell you how extraordinary it was. We also tasted chocolates, caramels and other sweets that are made right there in Rouen. Be sure to sign up for this!
