Dear friends of Beaucoup,
As you likely know, Beaucoup Bakery was founded after Jackie Kai Ellis spent time studying pastry arts in Paris, fell in love with the city, and wanted to find a way to bring a slice of it back to Vancouver to share with others. Jackie heads back to Paris on a regular basis to seek inspiration, further her professional training, and to eat her way through the City of Light’s finest patisseries and chocolate shops. During these visits, she found herself thinking, “I really wish I could share these amazing pastries with my friends and customers.”
Thus, The Paris Tours was born. Quite simply, you’re invited to join Jackie for an afternoon touring Paris’ legendary pastry houses and chocolatiers. On a three-hour walking tour, you’ll be guided by Jackie as she shows off what she considers the best that Paris has to offer, from traditional iterations of classic pastries to cutting-edge versions, regional specialties, and modern takes on standards. She’ll tell you what each place is known for, what’s worth trying, and what they do best.
After the tour, you’ll have the chance to taste all of the pastries you’ve picked up along the way on the tour. Grab a fork and enjoy! The afternoon tour is CAD $165 per person, and groups are limited to six people. On each tour, you’ll visit up to 10 places, which will change depending on the group, but may include Pierre Hermé, Angelina, Lenôtre, Café Pouchkine, and Hugo et Victor.
Jackie will next be in Paris from May 15 through 25 and tours will be offered throughout her stay. Interested in learning more? In Paris over different dates? Then we hope you’ll get in touch through the contact form on The Paris Tours site.
We hope to see you in Paris!
Jackie Kai Ellis and The Paris Tours team
