About Us

The Story Begins…

It was an easy choice: Flavors of Paris have launched our inaugural tours in Paris’ VIth, in the Saint-Germain-des-Prés quarter. Why? For the simple reason we’re utterly captivated by the charm of our neighborhood and its abundance of ultra high-quality food shops. Armed with a dream list of the Saint-Germain culinary treasures, we approached our prospective shops with hopes high they’d participate in our tour… and — amazing to relate — they all said yes! (We think it’s partly because we live here too.) Not only did these wonderful shops agree to come on board, they welcomed us with Parisian passion, and were eager to share their delicacies with us… …and you!

Who are we?

Our discoveries while wandering the streets of Paris inspired our labor of love that we call Flavors of Paris. Lisa Rankin in Paris and Michael Lutzmann in Stratford, Ontario, Canada are a couple of Canadian foodies, madly in love with Paris.
