We really enjoyed this food tour and learning about Julia Child. Benoit did an amazing job leading us and sharing the history. There was so much food on this tour, we certainly did not go hungry!

- Ann Bush – Google Review

Lulu was great! She was very informative, gave us good history regarding the stomping grounds of Julia Child. We walked through beautiful neighborhoods and ate at various places which all had great food (crepes, Perisian sandwiches, chocolate, eclaires, quiche, patisserie, wine and cheese). This was a decent amount of walking but not too much. At the end of the tour, including a walk to the Metro, including a quick stop to the Louvre, we were only at 10K steps.

Born in Paris but a citizen of the world, having lived in the US and traveling on a cruise line as the chef for many years
Favorite dish is whatever I am eating at the moment. France is a banquet of incredible food. I know where to find this, and will show you on the tour
Time off is spent with Laurence, my beautiful wife who you see in the photograph with me
Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina
Something simple like a crêpe oeuf fromage, a croissant aux amandes or just any kind of cheese
My favourite spot is by the river, anywhere between Pont d'Alexandre and the Ile Saint Louis. Have an picnic and a glass of wine

I was born & raised in Paris. Like Julia Child, I’ve lived 6 years in Shanghai, China and when I came back to Paris I decided to go to cooking school. To continue following her footsteps I will probably move to Marseille one day.
My favorite meal would be a perfectly cooked roasted Chicken and potatoes with green beans but I also have a real passion for Indian food.
I can talk about anything food & beverage related for hours!

Born in London. I first lived in Paris at 18 to apprentice as a chef and moved back in 2018 to be with my wife for the birth of our daughter.
My favourite meal is something Julia Child would have served her guests; a simple green salad, a large selection of french cheeses, red wine and of course a proper Baguette.
My down time is spent cooking; either simple fresh food for our little family or epic meals to entertain friends.
