What's in our tour?
You crave for French food. You want to eat it all. And you want to investigate first-hand if French food deserves the credit it receives.
But you are also on a Vegetarian or Gluten-Free diet. Then welcome to the Great Food Sampling in Montmartre!
How is that possible? Simply, French foods are so diverse they always offer some diet-responsible choices. This tour presents 3 food choices at every stop: vegetarian, gluten-free, and other. Gluten-free cake or pastry? Easy! A vegetarian choice at the pâté store? Same!
We stop at a cheesemonger, a rôtisseur, an Auvergne cheese & ham store, a bakery, a pastry store, a seafood store, and vegetable and fruit stands. Then we sit down for lunch at the terrace of a Parisian café.
At every stop, we sample foods we like, right there and then. We also buy more food, ahead of the proper sit-down meal we share at the end.
Our itinerary makes its way up Montmartre’s rue Lepic – one of Paris’ most celebrated food streets. The family-run stores we have selected support responsible family farming. Most of them are organic. And each of them provides succulent food selections.
For all fellow travelers, this tour also offers non-vegetarian/GFD food alternatives. Vegetarians, Gluten-Free Diets and other eaters: we are proud that our tour is open to everyone.
Please note that our menu is for lacto-ovo-vegetarians. It includes cheese and dairy products. We may be unable to address food restrictions besides GFD and Vegetarian.
And our point? We ought to all eat together. Diet eaters should not be cast aside. Their travel companions too should have the time of their lives. And what’s more congenial and friendly than to share a meal together?!
This tour generates inspiring conversations about dietary choices. Guests understand each other a lot better after our tour. And French food gets an all-thumbs up!
