This Paris Latin Quarter Food Tour and Luncheon is a wonderful way to discover many traditional French Foods. The charming rue Mouffetard area – vibrant with so many great food shops – will be the backdrop to an exploration of French Food speciality stores: from slices hams at the “charcuterie” to fresh oysters at the “poissonnerie”, from pâté at the “boucherie” to croissants at the “boulangerie”, from macarons at the “patisserie” to cheese at the “fromagerie” there is little that you will not get to see, taste and discuss in depth. For our tours are obviously about the Food of France, but they are also an excuse for sharing our passion for the relationship between Food and Culture. And you will get to enjoy what you pick through your journey into French food and culture back at our beautiful location at Le Foodist in a pic-nic style lunch with some wine and further discussions with your guide. And we like to think that you will know quite a bit more as well about the food habits of the Parisians after this tour.
I recently went on the Latin Quarter Food Tour with Le Foodist and totally recommend it! It was a really enjoyable experience where we learnt many historical points of interest in Paris while tasting and picking up loads of lovely food (cheese, pastries, charcuterie and more) on the way. Our guide Emily was very knowledgable, friendly and a great host. The tour finished back at Le Foodist where we ate what we had collected on the way along with great conversation and wine.

I took the Latin Quarter Food tour with my friends and it was excellent from start to finish! Our guide Emily was superb, very informative, she gave us insights into French food and culture, historic Latin Quarter and Paris. We started with boulangeries and we learnt not only the history of French bread but also tried different types of baguettes. Her wonderful sense of humour made our tour experience such fun! I highly recommend Le Foodist and will surely book another class with them when in Paris again.

Our tour was definitely above expectations. Our tour guide, Emily, was excellent. She is fluent in all things "food" and her local knowledge was incomparable. She geared the tour around our interests and the lunch was superb. We cannot make a higher recommendation.

Discovering culture through food is what we want to do when we travel. So we have developed all our experiences with that simple idea in mind: ensure that you learn both about the topic at hand, but also about French culture in the process. So in our food tours, we will talk about the history of various aspects of French food, in our cooking class about how certain dishes became so important in our culture. During our wine tastings, we will explore the regional differences in French culture. And, a regional cooking holiday is an opportunity to deep dive French food culture to its core and foundation: the regional gastronomies, and the concept of terroir.
