Deeply interested in gastronomy since I was young, I have authored the guide “Paris gourmandises”, visited all of the bakeries of the area, interviewed many chefs and learned small secrets and anecdotes which will delight my listeners. I have now enjoyed leading this tour for over a year. I have an open, friendly and warm temperament; our conversations will be mutually enjoyable.

Where you'll be

Saint-Germain-des-Près is situated on the left bank of Paris, a mythical area of La Belle Epoque. During the post-war years, it was assaulted by a cosmopolitan youth in search of freedom and fun, dancing in cellars to the sound of jazz or simply exploring the variety of life.

Rated 4.83 out of 5 from 109 reviews.

It was a great experience with Irene. She guided us to several different shops in the area. The sweets were great and she was descriptive about the history of the stores. Some gems there. Thanks Irene!

Irene was a great guide and new a ton about the dessert/pastry culture and history in Paris. I definitely feel like I got a great crash course in this time.

We travelled first time into Paris and had only one day to visit it. We never wouldn’t find this kind of extra pastry shops without Irène.
