I had a wonderful virtual cheese tasting with Jessica last night. She is so knowledgeable and taught us the differences between cheese types and how French cheese is classified. I’d always wanted to know more about how cheese is made and she explained it all! Thanks Jessica!

Hi Caroline, thank you for taking the time to leave me a review! I'm so happy you had a great time during my new French Cheese 101 online workshop. It's my goal to get people more comfortable and confident when talking about and tasting cheese! Best, Jessica

We went on the Chocolate and Pastry tour. Not only did we taste some amazing chocolate and different types of pastries, Jessica gave an amazing tour that included a lot to history of the city and of the shops we went to. Would highly recommend!

Chocolate and Pastry Tour:

Jessica provided a wonderful experience for our entire family (kids, parents, grand-parent). She was able to modify her chocolate and pastry tour to include a glute-free option. The walking portion was entirely manageable, even for a wheel-chair. She is knowledgeable, engaging, and clearly communicates. The emails in advance of the trip were helpful to ensure we knew exactly where and when to go. The purchasing of the trip tickets was easy!

If you are an English speaking person who is intimated by the French food scene, hire Jessica to give you a tour! She picked out some of the best, behind the scene chocolate and pastry options. Ask about where to get the fudge (La Compagnie du Chocolat) because that was some of the best in the world!

My friend and I went on Taste of Toulouse's Chocolate and Pastry tour. I have been in Toulouse for one month, however, it was my first time exploring the city and tasting the joy of being in Toulouse. This wouldn't have been true without your help. Thank you so much for the valuable information and the incredible moments.

Our chocolate and pastry tour of Toulouse with Jessica was the perfect way to see highlights of Old Town Toulouse and savor some of the sweet delights of this lovely city. My 11-year-old granddaughter and I had one full day in Toulouse and chose to get to know a sweet and tasty side of the city. The historical and cultural aspects of the tour were so interesting, and each of Jessica's selections seemed to be chosen just for those of us in our group. The group was small, so it enhanced our ability to get to know each other a bit and everyone had input into our pastry selections. I highly recommend this for a more "off the beaten path" way to get to know the personality of the city. Thank you Jessica for sharing your passion with us.

Ally was friendly and pleasant, with a love of food, chocolate and dessert. She went with the flow of the group and the weather, engaged with each of the guests on the tour, and shared her knowledge of Toulouse in relation to the chocolate and pastries we tasted. Speaking with the chocolatier was a highlight of our tour. Would absolutely recommend!

I absolutely loved the Chocolate and Pastry Tour Jessica crafted for our group! I especially liked how, as we wiggled our way through the streets of the city, she regaled us with interesting tales and shared bits about its history, architecture, culture and people. Touring the pastry and chocolate shops of Toulouse with Jessica was the highlight of my visit to the Southwest of France!

We had a fabulous time on this lovely market tour with Jenn. Her engaging personal style and passion for the gastronomy of southern France were delightful, and we learned all about the local producers and culinary traditions of Toulouse. Jenn was able to accommodate several dietary restrictions while still ensuring everyone had a great time and a plethora of interesting food and wine to taste. Her stories and insights made this colourful market tour an absolute delight. We highly recommend this tour for an insider's perspective on the eternally fascinating topic of French gastronomy.

Hi Brienne, Your review put a big smile on our faces! Thank you for your kind words and for sharing your experience with others. We try hard to accommodate as many dietary restrictions as possible without sacrificing quality and taste - we want as many people to be able to meet each other around our table (or wine barrel, since we're in the market) as possible.

Participated in one of the online cheese workshops.

Now doing a cheese workshop virtually would pose a challenge, you'd think. However, Jessica sent a shopping and prep list in advance, and with two cameras and screen presentations, this was super fun.

Well organised, a wealth of info, and lively discussion: highly recommended if you cannot make it to Toulouse to do the real thing in person. ;-)

Thanks for your review. I put a lot of effort and thought into how to organize our new online workshops so that people would be able to participate, no matter what type of cheese they had access to and I'm so happy to know that you found it fun and engaging! Glad it gave you a taste of what it's like to enjoy the "real thing" in Toulouse. :-)

Not to miss tour of several wonderful wine bars in the heart of Toulouse, each one unique by ambience, type of wines, and service. Jessica adds an energetic, personal touch throughout the tour with just the right amount of history, interesting facts, and time for conversation with others taking the tour. If you love wine, and want to learn more about this charming French city, reserve your space now.
