Fun cheese tastings taught in English by certified cheesemongers
Our tasting includes:
Become a certified Cheese Geek in a fun, informative two-hour session to discover the wonderful world of French cheeses.
We’ll start with a handful of explorative exercises using our five senses to get to know each other around our wooden, farm table. Then, we’ll take you on a Tour de France through the best of cheese-producing regions, tasting six artisanal cheeses paired with an eclectic collection of beverages from wine, cider, beer, juice, to port along with delicious condiments: jams and jellies, honey and even candied peppers.
You'll learn a lot with our experts: from the making of cheese to how they are aged, stored and enjoyed as well as how to cut, serve and buy France's favorite food group. You'll also receive your own Cheese Geek Tasting Book with notes, and fun facts.
Fabrice and his cheesemonger friends are here to offer you the best cheese and beverage tasting in Paris!
How do we do it? Our secret is:
Artisanal cheeses are paired
with unique beverages
(wine, beer, cider, liquors, juices...)
Ten fellas maximum
to make sure we're having fun
A certified cheesemonger
that knows his stuff and will show
you that cheese is funny!
A tasting costs 70€ per adult and 60€ per child, people say it's definitely worth the price. Take a look at all what you'll get!
We will meet in a cheese shop, you will be surrounded by cheeses.
After a cheesy but necessary ceremonial, we will sit at the big farm table and learn how to taste cheese like experts, through creative and entertaining group games. You’ll then be ready to go on a "Tour de Fromage" of six artisanal farm cheeses, each paired with six unique beverages (wine but also beer, cider, sweet wines and juices) to discover major French cheese terroirs.
We're damn proud that more than 95% of our guests gave us a 5-stars review. Still aiming at 100% though!

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.
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;
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 !
