Food walking tours Paris

I'm interested in a food walking tour while I'm in Paris around the holidays. Does anyone have one they can recommend? There are quite a few to chose from.

  1. nah, none good except Wendy Lyn, the only real expert

    1. Highly recommend Paris by Mouth tours. Groups of 6 have tours based on cheese, sweets, a general tour or more. The company owner Meg Zimbeck is very, very knowledgeable and conducts the tours with humor, generosity, and intelligence.
      They also are longer and 1/2 the cost of W Lyn.

        Deluca: spot-on. Meg Zimbeck knows it all without being a know-it-all.

          yep, but, as they say, you get what you pay for, and Wendy has the better contacts

        2. Not sure when your trip is, but we have booked the Holiday Tour with Paris by Mouth for December 20 & then a tour with Wendy Lyn the next day. I know they might be a bit redundant, but we think both will be a good introduction to food & wine & neighborhoods. I'll be happy to report to you if your trip is after this date.

          1. Leonard Pitt, the author of several books on walks in historic Paris, occasionally does a chocolate walking tour. No idea how good it is, but it sounds interesting:
