The French are all about pastries! The country is famous all over the world for its tasty desserts and delightful pastry concoctions. Even the word “dessert” is derived from the French word “desservir” which means “to clear the table”. And if you are visiting Paris, you must try the best sweet treats in town! Let me take you on a private sweet pastry tour where you'll learn about the French dessert culture. The best part is that you will try some of the most traditional sweets but also get a taste of the modern pastry, as pastries are not only an old tradition but something that current chefs are still innovating and exploring with. Every stop has been carefully chosen based on the tastings, place authenticity, and ambiance plus it can be adapted to your diet and requests. Try an éclair, a pastry that means "flash of lightning" and it's named this way because well, it's eaten in a flash. An éclair is an oblong pastry made with choux dough filled with a cream and topped with icing. And the place of the tasting offers many colorful éclairs and that will astonish you, because as the French say: not only do we eat with the mouth but also with the eyes! Go for a gaufre, a sweet specialty from the North of France. And of course, the crèpes will also be a part of this sweet pastry tour. Another favorite: macaroons! This food tour has everyone's favorites but with a local touch that you can't find anywhere else. Enter the world of modern pastries and enjoy a refreshing tartelette au citron. And close your private experience by enjoying an aromatic French coffee, in a typical French café. Not everything has to be eaten on the spot by the guest. If you don't feel like eating everything, it is possible to take out! I will help you plan everything, all you have to do is bring your sweet tooth and enjoy the tasty ride!
