Foodie & History tour of Saint Rémy

Our popular foodie tours are still running....

Join us to discover Saint Remy through a different angle... Food tasting and History!!!

Follow me in the hidden corners of Saint Remy and discover our fantastic local products!

- Learn about the history of our "Pâtisserie" and cookies. Taste the 14th C "Little Albert heart" a simple "biscuit" with saffron or try the "Ginger heart" (17th C recipe from Russia),
