Hey, friends! You know I love food, so I have to tell you about the most popular “foodie experiences” in Paris, France. First up is the boulangeries, where you can get your hands on freshly baked baguettes, croissants, and other pastries. Then there’s cheese tasting – trust me, you’ll never look at cheese the same way again.

Wine tasting is a must-do; of course, it’s a no-brainer because France is most famous for its wine. Want to learn how to cook like a French chef? Take a cooking class! If you’re feeling fancy, fine dining is a must-do. But my personal favorite is a macaron-making class, where you can learn how to make these delicate and delicious treats yourself. If you want to soak up the Parisian atmosphere, you can’t go wrong with a picnic by the Seine with your lover. And if you just want to chill in your hotel bed with a view of the Eiffel Tower, then why not?

As a mad Foodie, nothing excites me more than exploring a new city and getting a taste of the local cuisine. And when it comes to food, few places on earth can compare to Paris. From the buttery croissants to the savory escargot, this city is a foodie’s paradise.
