It was not only yummy, but also informative. Iris Grossman-Amice is an American who has passed all the official examinations to be certified by the French government as an official guide. She researched and created this fascinating Chocolate Walk which she gives through Paris Walks. She can also be reached for a lot of other tours, both private and group, at firstname.lastname@example.org Happy Travels.
Sounds wonderful! There is a lot of great chocolate in Paris. Choosing which ones to include on the tour..., must have been torture to do the research. :-) Can you share one or two of your favorite places?
Hi Andrew, we started at a pastry shop near the Louvre called Gosselin. Next, I remember La Maison du Chocolat, which has several shops, but we went to the one on the Avenue de l'Opera. We also went to Jean-Paul Hevin's shop on the Rue Saint Honore. There was one more, which I'll try to remember and let you know. It was a delightful tour! Bets
One of the shops on the tour actually owns its own cocoa plantations, and you could taste the chocolates from each. Each one had a distinctive flavor. I'm afraid that I find my memory is fading, and will be forced to take this tour again! I took another tour that Iris led, the Paris Walks Marais one. She was great.
Thanks so much for your post on this. I have been looking into this tour for a while. I am definitely joining this tour in September. Your favourable review has definitely contributed to this. This chocoholic can't wait to visit Paris!
We were in Paris earlier this month...there were many enchanting things about the city, but the chocolate/chocolate pastries were definately near the top of the list. We favored a bakery near Rue Cler and daily for breakfast we indulged in pain au chocolat, chocolat beignets and more. Don't miss the chocolate crepes at the Greek restaurant on Rue Cler either :)
