A vegan in Paris? Join Thomas and Paris Vegan Walkabouts for a three hour colourful, culinary jaunt where the focus is firmly on fabulous vegan fare. You'll visit artisanal food makers, markets and cafes and you'll take in historical back-alleys and learn fascinating, little-known facts about the city of light and its history along the way.
Long renowned for its fabulous fare, Paris has been attracting foodies since Charles de Gaulle was in shorts. But unlike yesteryear, today it's the city's burgeoning vegan scene that has food-lovers excited.
At the forefront are restaurants in the 11th and 12th arrondissements — one of two Veggietown districts of Paris — where a new breed of French chefs show off their talents, sans viande.
Now you could set off alone in search of the perfect Parisian vegan meal and I'm sure you'd stumble upon something more than totally satisfactory — I mean, it is Paris after all — or you could put your trust in a Parisian vegan and amateur home chef with intricate knowledge of the local vegan scene.
Enter Thomas Tieyre, local Parisian, vegan, guide and founder of Paris Vegan Walkabouts.
Thomas runs three fabulous vegan tours in different districts of Paris. As well as visiting the 11th and 12th arrondissements, Thomas also takes tours to the streets of the Sentier and Arts et Métiers districts of Paris.
Each tour is a three hour colourful, culinary jaunt where the focus is firmly on fabulous vegan fare. You'll visit artisanal food makers, markets and cafes and you'll take in historical back-alleys and learn fascinating, little-known facts about the city of light and its history along the way.
Here's a bit of taster of what to expect on the 11th and 12th arrondissements tour:
Jumping off near Bastille Place, you'll kick start the morning with a healthy vegan breakfast at a coffee shop. You'll follow that up with a visit to a vegan cheese workshop for a round of tastings (and the opportunity to stock up if you wish). And what foodie frolic in France would be complete without partaking in a pastry or two? You'll get your chance as Thomas takes you to a vegan pastry shop.
So whether your looking to indulge your own palate in Paris, or you're after the perfect gift for a vegan or vegetarian friend or family member — or anyone with operational tastebuds for that matter — check out what Paris Vegan Walkabouts can offer, and prepare for a little decadent vegan indulgence.
