When you take a walking food and wine tour with Anne Jordan in Bordeaux, you will be sure we are going to introduce you to high quality food and local products. While passing famous locations like the Grand Theatre or Place de la Bourse, maybe we will taste caviar, oysters, Landais duck and Basque goat cheese. Our chef lead Bordeaux food tours include local wine, where you’ll discover Bordeaux is not only bold reds wines!
A standard Bordeaux Food Tour with us would take you through the most historic areas of Bordeaux from Saint Pierre to Chartrons. We discuss historic foods from medieval times until modern day. Take each product and break it down for you, where it is made, how it is made, and what changes it has seen over the centuries. We like to change it up a bit each time based on clients demands, so feel free to email us what interests you the most…local pastry? Cheese? Cured meats? Wine? Do you prefer markets or private chefs tasting menus?
You’ll learn how the recipe for the famous Bordeaux canelé has changed over the centuries. Taste wine from sweet whites to dry reds, all from Bordeaux. Discover vegan wine. Would you like to try duck ham, or truffled Basque cheese? How a young enslaved boy from Reunion Island (France) revolutionized the vanilla trade? The different styles of cuisine in Aquitaine?
