What you'll do
Meet in one of the most beautiful and rich in history district of Paris. La Bastille. I would then take you to one of the oldest markets in Paris. The Aligre market located in the heart of the faubourg Saint-Antoine, in the 12th arrondissement. This area, famous since Louis XIV for its carpenters and its cabinetmakers who, in the 18th century, passed to make the most beautiful furniture in the world, has been able to keep its village appearance, with its streets traced back to the Middle Ages. I will show you the best cheese and wine makers in the market. You can taste cheeses and wines and we will do some shopping for lunch. For our lunch we will be welcomed in a charming place of life rue du Faubourg Saint Antoine. In this place we will introduce you to the secrets of "Breton crêpes" from the making of the dough to the tasting. How to blow up french crêpes will have no secret for you !

Born in Paris and trained as a pastry chef, I would like to share my passion for unusual and typically Parisian places. I like to wander the streets of Paris and discover small treasures of know-how and charming shops or crafts. I am a great gourmet and also love to go and get the best pastry. Even if I have to cross all of Paris for that!
We will choose together cheese and wine for our lunch with french typical "baguette"
Wine from the market but also non-alcoholic beverage will be provided
Where you'll be
The current covered market Beauvau-Saint Antoine dates from 1843, it was built by Marc-Gabriel Jolivet, architect of the City of Paris, on the ruins of the previous market, looted and destroyed during the capture of the Bastille. The building owes its name to the last abbey of Saint-Antoine Abbey. After that the lunch and workshop will take place in a typical Parisian appartment.
