We Taste Paris
At a charming cheese boutique in the Marais neighborhood, we’ll dive straight into the vast and exciting world that is French cheese: the history, production process, science, regional specialties, and cultural significance.
After exploring the cheeses in store, we’ll descend to the 17th century cellar for the cheese-and-wine tasting, and even step into the cheese-aging chamber. While I can’t guarantee that we’ll try all 500+ varieties of French cheeses that are known to exist, you will taste a wide and representative selection! We’ll also pair the cheeses with delightful natural wines that will have your taste buds singing.
