Favorite Experience in Paris!

Our cheese tasting with Le Cheese Geek was one of our favorite experiences in Paris! We loved Fabrice, tasted MIND-BLOWING cheeses, and washed it down with plenty of wine and beer. Super fun experience for professional foodies or just cheese-loving beginners!

Awesome! Let Cheese Geek!!

We were with Ashley and she was FABULOUS. Cheese nerd but stand up comic. Her punchlines just kept coming non-stop. The table was set up beautifully. The cheese cave was nothing like I imagined. So cool. We played games and then started our 6 cheeses with red wine, white wine, beer, cider, port wine, and one other I can’t remember! We had cheese that ranged from milder and creamy to sharper and dryer and some very aggressive tastes too! The Camembert and Roquefort were my favorite. To accompany there wet mini sausages, three types of bread, and a fruit platter! I can’t say enough about this experience and Ashley. Don’t miss it! I don’t want to post pics because it will ruin the awe!

A Highlight of A Fabulous Trip

We were four women in France for a birthday trip. We absolutely loved our Le Cheese Geek experience. Ashley was bright, charming, and knowledgeable. And the CHEESE -- unbelievable. The tasting was of 6 cheeses over the course of about 2 hours in the basement of a cheese shop. Cheeses were paired with wine, beer and other drinks, and served with bread. Ashley told us about the cheese industry and each of the cheeses we tasted. Truly a don't-miss experience in Paris.

cheese tasting in Paris with the cheese Geek

A perfect location to taste cheese in Paris

We're happy to welcome you in our partner's cheese shop.
The location is perfectly tailored to make sure you will be immersed in a world of cheese and will enjoy your tasting at its best. A giant black board, maps, magazines and books...about cheese of course! The cheeses you're tasting are quietly maturing in our cave below the shop! As cheese geeks, you will have the possibility to purchase all the cheeses, wines and delicatessen you've tried during your tasting in our micro cheese shop.

To learn cheese tasting rules

During our two hours together, you will learn the basics of cheese tasting :

  • the three steps for a professional cheese tasting (visual, olfactory and gustatory) through mini game and group workshops;

  • rules and tricks to understand how to pair your cheese with wine and other beverages such as beer, cider, juices or liquors;

  • ideas to choose your bread to accompany the cheese;

For two hours you can learn the rules of cheese tasting in Paris

And taste great cheeses while travelling through France

You will, of course, taste some great French cheese, from the classics (Sainte-Maure-de-Touraine, Saint-Nectaire, Comté, Camembert de Normandie, Munster, Roquefort, …) to less famous cheeses, made by small-scale producers.

The cheese selection changes every time according to seasons, supplies and agings.

Each cheese will be carefully paired with a unique beverage(wines but also beer, cider, juices, port wine, and some surprises!), to give you a good idea of all the pairing possibilities cheese has to offer.

During the tasting, we will also use a map of France to discover the main cheese making regions : goat cheese in the Loire Valley , hard cheeses from Jura and Savoie mountains, sheep’s milk cheeses from Occitanie, and the Auvergne, a cheese plate itself!.

We will take time to discussevery cheese: anecdotes about its origins, its making, stories of the producer. Then we will taste it together and go through the tasting: describe its texture, its taste, and aromatic profile, too.

Each guest will have its little “Le Cheese Geek Tasting Book” to keep track of all the cheese he’s tasting.

See you very soon for a pretty cheesy adventure !
