At a charming cheese boutique in the Marais neighborhood, we'll dive straight into the vast and exciting world that is French cheese: the history, production process, science, regional specialties, and cultural significance. After exploring the cheeses in store, we'll descend to the 17th century cellar for the cheese-and-wine tasting, and even step into the cheese-aging chamber. While we can't guarantee that we'll try all 500+ varieties of French cheeses that are known to exist, you will taste a wide and representative selection! We'll also pair the cheeses with delightful organic or low intervention wines that will have your taste buds singing.

We've led hundreds of bespoke, fun, relaxed, "under the skin of the city" culinary tours and have a combined 18 years of working in French cuisine, including stints for Michelin-starred restaurants and iconic chef Alain Ducasse - so you're in good hands with either one of us! Aurélien hails from a family of Breton fishermen and Béarnais foie gras producers, and has lived in France, Canada and Asia. Andres attended one of France's most prestigious culinary schools and has a wine diploma WSET Level 3 & specializes in the champagne region. Both of us are passionate food and wine educators who believe that health, happiness and a fulfilling life begin with the taste buds.

We'll conduct our cheese-and-wine tasting in the private 17th-century cellar of a family-owned cheese shop. This picturesque cave, hidden below a historic market in the heart of the Marais, will be reserved exclusively for us. You'll even get to sneak a peek into the cheesemonger's private cheese-aging room!
