You’ll start the food tour with a young baker making bread and viennoiserie on site. See croissants being rolled and folded before you try one of France’s most beloved pastries here and learn how it made its way to Bordeaux. Next up on your food tour is Bordeaux’s emblematic canelé, a sweet treat with strong ties to the famous wine region. You'll visit a small, owner-operated patisserie that makes fresh canelés daily with natural ingredients. You'll pass by the medieval Cathedral of Saint André, the most beautiful religious monument in Bordeaux and where the future king of France Louis VII was married in 1137. Stop to marvel at the gold-topped tower of Pey-Berland before continuing to your next foodie stop. As one of France’s oldest ports, Bordeaux’s troubled and vibrant history spans over 2000 years. Weave through the charming back streets to a passionate artisan serving locally produced charcuteries. Discover how his unique process, combining ancient and modern techniques, produces the finest jambon France has to offer. Next up, cheese! No food tour of France would be complete without it. Led by a specialist cheese monger, learn the differences in French terroir in a country that produces over 1200 cheeses! Stopping off in the famous Triangle d’Or quarter, you’ll visit a Bordeaux institution that’s been producing artisanal chocolate since 1915. This is a third-generation family business and a must-visit in Bordeaux. Just next door is one of Bordeaux’s newest pâtisserie, named after the distinctive Atlantic coastline of the region. Invented in 2007 by the son of a famous pastry maker, you’ll try the delicious and popular crunchy puff pastry filled with cream. Finish up in a local’s wine bar and learn everything you need to know about French regional wines in a tasting of three local wines. Ask all your wine questions to the owner Thierry—he’ll be leading the tasting and telling you his opinions on wine too!
