Delicious Normandy Tours
Food tours in Normandy. It's an idea that I've been mulling around in my head since last summer. I tentatively started planning a Normandy food tour several months ago, but the idea really took hold once I started leading tours in Paris with Paris by Mouth.
Every week I meet passionate French food lovers who come to Paris, take a tour and want to learn more about French regional food as they continue their travels around the country. I couldn't help but be inspired by their curiosity and questions, so I decided it was finally time to get my favorite local merchants and producers together and go ahead and launch this thing!
Offering a tour of the Saturday morning Bayeux market was my first choice. It's a bustling, traditional weekly market that offers a glimpse into real life in France.
I've shopped at dozens of regional French markets over the last decade and Bayeux is by far my favorite. And it's where I do most of my weekly shopping.
Every Saturday I fill my basket with fresh produce, Normandy cream, butter and cheese, charcuterie, fresh seafood, bread, flowers and wine or cider.
It is truly a food lover's paradise!
The Delicious Normandy Tour is an intimate, 3 hour long walking tour where you will discover the colorful outdoor market in Bayeux and indulge in the famed regional cheeses, sweet buttery pastries, caramels, local charcuterie, rich Normandy cream infused desserts, French cider and the world renowned apple brandy, Calvados.
What you can expect: As we wander through the market we will purchase and taste many of the specialties of the region before walking through the historical center to a centuries old stone home to relax and taste the rest of our market bounty, paired with Normandy cider and Calvados.
My tours are offered every Saturday morning, rain or shine. The generous selection of what we'll be tasting varies by the season and is included in the price of the tour.
