Paris Food & Wine w/ New York Times Travel Journalist
As a longtime contributor to the Travel section of The New York Times, I have rigorously explored and contributed articles about the lively Bastille neighborhood--my home since 2007. For this tour, I will help guests discover and taste one of the best emerging food and drink areas of Paris. I intend to take a small group (6 max) around to the absolute best places to eat and drink in the neighborhood, from luxury boutiques by celebrities to cultishly worshipped shops to unassuming storefronts that hide deliciousness within. I'll splurge for several specialties--baguettes, cheese, charcuterie, pastries, coffee, chocolate--while talking about neighborhood history, Parisian life, French food and more. Once fully provisioned, we can devour our purchases together at one of my favorite local wine shops, which will provide us with the perfect liquid accompaniment.   My hope is to turn guests on to a great (and overlooked!) fast-rising food area--both its history and its many delicious offerings. With me they will discover award-winning baguettes, a top-flight coffee roaster, a five-star chocolate manufacturer, an old-school sausage seller, a cheese lab, two pastry havens and a supremely cool natural-wine purveyor. I will be the food sherpa and indoctrinate the group into Paris deliciousness.
