While we were in Paris – a patisserie and chocolate tour was something I really wanted to try …. when we are on a family holiday my husband and I usually try to each have a half day each to ourselves to do our “own thing” – I usually want to wander myself, exploring and taking photos, my husband will usually want to spend it in a museum or art gallery.
This time in Paris however, I found a patisserie and chocolate tour through the company “Meet the French” which uses local french guides to give tours – the one I chose was the bakeries and patisseries of the Left Bank – with samples included obviously.
The Trop tarts (from St Tropez)
The salted caramels and fruit jellies (more like fruit pastilles here but with incredible intense flavours)
Finally the choux buns – filled on demand by huge syringes with only 4 flavours – all delicious!
I really enjoyed this tour, a highlight of our time in Paris, and thanks to my husband for this early birthday present!
