Bon appetit!

Lindsey’s husband, Chef Justin Kent, has worked in Paris at the 3 Michelin starred L’Arpege, Agape Substance, and Verjus. His mother is French, thus much of his upbringing involved cooking with French influences. His grandmother lives in the countryside in northern France, and she has always been an incredible cook and mentor for Justin. So now he’s catering to couples in Paris by offering gourmet picnics and romantic dinners for two! Most Parisian restaurants can’t offer a view quite as stunning as the view from Champ des Mars park, so a picnic is the perfect way to enjoy great food along with the amazing Eiffel Tower view! We’re offering a special rate for Pictours Paris photo session clients, so make your time in Paris even more magical with a photo session AND picnic or romantic dinner by Chef Kent!

Picnics Paris launches “Picnic du Jour: Picnics to Go” with Fat Tire Tours!

For the spring and summer seasons, Lindsey’s husband, Chef Kent of Picnics Paris, in partnership with Fat Tire Tours, has launched a more casual picnic option which can be picked up twice a day from the Fat Tire Tours office to be enjoyed at your leisure! Picnic du Jour is the perfect “every-day” casual picnic option for people looking to experience a Parisian picnic without the hassle of going on their own scavenger hunt for food and products like plates and glasses, not to mention most of us don’t travel with picnic blankets either!
