"Our experience learning from Michelle about all the secrets of French pastries and sweets was truly magical and unique. We took our tween kids and they said after the experience how much they enjoyed it as well. Michelle was extremely generous with her time and we gained a newfound respect for what makes Parisian sweets so special! She took us to a range of the most amazing and delicious shops, introduced us to the chefs, and took us through the story of how everything is handcrafted, what makes it all different, and filled our stomachs with some of the most amazing desserts I had ever eaten. She brought her iPad and showed us her experience studying pastries and was able to go into incredible detail." (Julie, Dec 2019) PM for private bookings :)

The perfect immersion experience in French arts & culture, history and gastronomy. Generous food tasting combined with sightseeing & fun story-telling by a chef. Apart from 7-10 pastry/chocolate shops, fine food stores and traditional markets, we will also visit some of the most beautiful historic monuments in the neighbourhood along the way: literary cafés, Saint Sulpice Church, Jardin du Luxembourg, Covered Passages, art nouveau buildings...
I will be in touch prior to our experience - please let me know of any food intolerances or allergies. If you're the only guest, it's a private tour :) tasting portions will be smaller though due to budget constraint. Light lunch is recommended for the afternoon teatime experience.
