What you'll do

Indulge in eight-course tasting menus at two Michelin-starred restaurants and… just kidding! Start your mouth-watering meander at 400-year-old Marché des Enfants Rouges, the oldest covered market in Paris. Join locals queuing to sample cheeses, charcuterie, and galettes – impossibly thin buckwheat pancakes with stuffed with savory fillings – then duck into Edwart Chocolatier Marais for exotic chocolates, and relax at a simple sidewalk cafe with crêpes or a macaron. Stroll narrow streets between boulangeries for buttery, flaky croissants and baguettes done the right way, or have something a little heartier: rich boeuf bourignon – slow-cooked beef and root vegetable stew – with a glass of French wine, of course.

Where you’ll go

You’ll feast your way through historic Le Marais in the central 4th arrondissement – Paris’s artistic enclave where fashionable boutiques and trendy cafes sit nestled between 700-year-old buildings. Take your time strolling the cobbled streets of the local food markets, with a helpful host recommending the most delicious morsels, and weave between some of the finest boulangeries, fromageries, and pâtisseries in the city, tasting cheeses, breads, and charcuterie as you go. Stop for a pastry at Café Berry as you watch locals heading towards a local institution, L'As du Falafel (rumored to make the best falafel in Paris), then clink glasses with your host at a cozy wine bar - along with a few morsels of exquisite regional cheeses, of course.
