The Montmartre culinary tour is a great way to see the neighborhood and eat some excellent local food. The group met outside the Abbesses metro stop, and John-Paul was easily identifiable with his brochure. The tour consists of walking around the neighborhood, with John-Paul's narrative about places like one of Van Gogh's homes or the grocery from Amelie, with 3 stops along the way in wonderful restaurants. At the first, we had a cheese and charcuterie plate with wine; at the second we had a main course with more wine (with opportunities to eat traditional preparations of foods fish or veal, or more adventurous foods like frogs legs or brains); at the last, we had crepes and cider. The tour does involve a bit of uphill walking in places, but no one in the group seemed to have any problems with the level of activity. John-Paul is very knowledgable about French food and the history of the area, with lots of entertaining anecdotes and personal details. All in all, it was a wonderful and highly recommended way to see the neighborhood and pass the afternoon.
