Visited best sweet shops in St Germain with a friendly guide
Nice variety of treats. Good history incorporated. Good information on French food basics.
We had a lovely time. Our guide was very informative and we enjoyed both the explanations and background she gave us on the area and the specific places we visited, as well as the food itself
The sweets we tasted with Phillipe are forever etched in my mind. Thank you Phillipe for enticing my taste buds and giving me a sweet treat memory I shall never forget. Great job!
