OUR GUIDE TO FOOD AND DRINKS IN PARIS

Long considered the culinary capital of the world, plan on arriving in Paris on an empty stomach – you won’t be hungry for long. From pretty patisseries offering decadent candy-colored macarons to market stalls selling crusty French baguettes and delectable gourmet cheeses, a trip to Paris is a vacation for your taste buds.

Starting with dessert first, the aromas wafting from all the gourmet patisseries and chocolate shops dotting the streets of the French capital are enough to make your mouth water. Macarons are a specialty in Paris, but hardly your only choice when it comes to pastries. Parisians also make lovely fruit tarts and mousse cakes. Of course, you can also never go wrong with an éclair – and there are so many to choose from!

If it’s savory food you’re after, consider a gourmet food tour of Paris. Wander through popular parts of the city like the Bastille district and Marais, and stop by shops and markets offering artisan French bread, cheese and wine.

Take a break from the busy French capital on a fantastic day trip to Champagne. Tour vineyards and cellars of famous champagne makers, sample glasses of bubbly in an informative tasting session and take the opportunity to see the more rural side of France.

Beyond tours and tasting sessions, another way to get acquainted with French cuisine is by grabbing a table at an authentic Parisian café or restaurant serving French onion soup, coq au vin and other French favorites. Explore the side streets of the Marais or St. Germain-des-Prés for eateries with the best ambiance or indulge in a combined dining and entertainment experience.

Regardless of whether you prefer sweet or savory, wine or champagne, one thing is for sure – you won’t leave Paris hungry.
