Meeting the French. I have been very fortunate with all the tours I have taken in Paris and this one was no exception. Our bakery tour was a behind the scene tour of the bakery with the baker.
We were also shown how to make escargots. This is a pastry that can any type of filling that you desire, pistachios, cranberries, raisins or whatever you wish for. And of course, we were allowed to sample everything...the dough, the fillings and the baked goods. The tour was truly fantastic. It was fun and quite informative. Of course any tour that sends me home with a goodie bag is going to high points from me. This was a unique and wonderful experience. Should you find yourself in Paris I would suggest you tour a bakery.
