What you'll do
During this experience, we will learn about French tastes as we get to know the Canal Saint-Martin authentic boutiques and food artisans. We’ll start by getting some unforgettable country-style pâté, as well as the traditional ham of Paris. Then we will go to one of the best boulangerie—a bakery making only bread—of Paris to try its amazing "friend bread." We will walk to a small market to get some Normandie oysters and delicious French cheeses, and you'll be able to choose the cheeses you want to try among approximately 200 options. We will savor everything we will have bought in the market at a table at Toto's, the fish seller. We will then continue our stroll with a praline shop tasting and finish in a pâtisserie bakery for dessert. I'll introduce you to the artisans I've chosen for this experience because I think you'll never be able to taste these types of quality products by yourself, as a foreigner, even in most Parisian restaurants. Plus, I live in this area and I know these artisans personally. To me, French food is a big part of the French culture. I am very proud of it and think it should be shared with everyone.
10 different products I'll provide an amount of food equal to a meal and the choices will depend on your preferences.

Where you'll be
We’ll weave through an array of non-touristy artisans by the Canal Saint-Martin. We’ll visit my favorite butcher and chef, baker, market, cheese seller, fish seller, praline shop, and pastry chef, to sample their most delicious offerings. We'll spend about 10% of the experience outside and the rest of the experience in the shops, so the experience will happen no matter the weather.
