The ACD Paris Pastry Tour!
Join an exclusive group of sugar fiends March 5-12, 2014 for the ACD Paris Pastry Tour and Europain, of the world’s largest pastry and baking shows. Explore the ultimate “City of Dreams” with a group of likeminded traveling companions. Grace McNamara, publisher of ACD magazine and Susan Schultz, editor, have more than 15 years travel experience in Paris, speak French and are thrilled to introduce others to their favorite city in the world!
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity! Join us as we explore Paris through the eyes of a sugar artist. We’re staying in the Saint Germain neighborhood—home to restaurants, shops, chocolatiers, confiseries, pâtisseries and hip boutiques. This is not an every-moment-of-your-time-scheduled trip. Instead, we’ve pulled together all the logistics, arranged for some exciting opportunities, but leave you free to arrange your days (and nights) to explore, taste and experience as you see fit. We’ll be there to answer questions, offer suggestions, help you plan your days, make recommendations, etc., to help you make it your trip to Paris! Here’s a sneak peek:
