Les Halles Gastronomy Food Tour


Are you a classic French food lover in search of Paris' gastronomic history? Then this is the cultural experience for you.

Join us for a three-hour adventure as we taste our way through one of the most historic food neighbourhoods of the city - Les Halles and rue Montorgueil.  Long nicknamed the ‘Belly of Paris’ thanks to Emile Zola’s 1873 novel ‘Le Ventre de Paris’, the area forms the foundation of the Paris' gastronomic scene.

Working our way through the bustling streets, we'll discover some of France’s oldest and most charming boutiques, while sampling an array of specialty items. 

Au menu :

We'll visit one of our favorite French cooking equipment stores, one of the oldest foie gras epiceries in the city, and a typical French fromager! Then there's the ‘saucisse’ and charcuterie from our favourite boucherie-charcuterie, a stop in at a lovely boulangerie to collect some wonderful French Bread to enjoy with our feast, and of course we'll be stepping into the oldest pastry store in Paris. We finish off our adventures at our favorite local wine bar!

From start to finish, a sensory overload of French gastronomy served alongside French food history - right in the heart of Paris!
