About the Baguette to Bistro: Culinary Traditions of Paris Walk in Paris
Paris is synonymous for gastronomic refinement and elegance firmly built on its traditions. From les grands restaurants to the thousands of exquisite specialty shops to the neighborhood boulangerie, Parisians make food an art. On this 2.5-hour walk we will delve into the fascinating and delectable world of Parisian culinary traditions in the company of a true food expert.
Our walk takes place in the chic Left Bank of Paris, where we will visit some of the city's finest food shops. Our docent, a trained chef or food journalist, will introduce us to some of the basic concepts of French cuisine, from discerning the proper cheese to understanding what's on display at the butcher's. Our immersion begins with a staple in any French diet: la Baguette. Though found on every Parisian table, all baguettes—governed by a surprising melange of history and law—are far from the same. We will learn how to tell them apart at one of Paris' best bakeries.
