How It All Began...

My life changed forever one day when, while I was teaching a French Pastries class, a longtime student piped up and asked,

“Lorie…when are you going to take us to Paris?”

I stopped in my tracks. My mouth fell open.

As I mulled the question over, I noticed a deep stirring in my gut. That night, I had a dream in vivid color about how to share my love of food and France with others.

The next morning, I bounded out of bed and eagerly shared the burgeoning idea with my husband. With his encouragement, a good business plan, and a lot of prayer, I took a leap of faith. The best part? Nine remarkable women lined up and leapt with me, and A Taste of Paris™ was born.

That first trip, and each trip since, has had a deeply personal impact on travelers. Immersing yourself in the French way of life and exploring this country through its food alters your point of view forever.

It’s also been a transformative experience for me to participate in the shared journey of my travelers and the community that evolves from exploring a different culture together.

You see, life stories tend to tumble out while breaking bread in a foreign country, tales of overcoming adversity, and moments of triumph- great and small.

These intimate moments, the meeting of hearts around a table, have become invaluable treasures to me.

And that’s why I continue to create opportunities for you with A Taste of Paris™– so you can also bring a little bit of France back to your home.
