While in Paris why not do a food tour?
I subscribe to Paris By Mouth and especially like the “Tours and Tasting” page. I was fascinated by this as soon as I saw it. And, since we were staying in Montmartre for a few weeks, what better way to learn about the neighborhood than with a food tour?
As it turned out my business partner over at Provence Rugs, Delana, was coming to town for a few days and was more than enthusiastic to try this tour.
First stop: we actually learned the difference between un baguette tradition and a plain old baguette. Yes, there is a huge difference and from that day forward I always asked for un baguette tradition!
And, we learned the difference between un croissant au beurre and those crescent shaped “croissants”. The latter are made with margarine… yes, quelle horreur, margarine! You always want un croissant au beurre, right?
Oh, the charcuterie and pates!(sorry, can’t get the accents in here) We sampled about six of these and it was very, very hard to choose a favorite.
