Context Travel and Hotel La Trémoille have teamed up with prestigious Maison Kaviare to offer a Flavors of Paris package, tailored to foodies and culinary-minded travelers. The package includes an overnight at Hotel La Trémoille, caviar from Maison Kaviari, and one of Context’s culinary seminars, the Baguette to Bistro.

Context Travel is a critically acclaimed tour company that organizes small-group, intimate tours for intellectually curious travellers. The Baguette to Bistro walk included in this package is led by a food historian or food writer, and delves into the history of culinary traditions, unveiling connections between social revolutions and food habits.

“The pairing with Hotel La Trémoille and Maison Kaviare is perfect,” said Lily Heise, the Paris manager for Context. “The first represents elegance and history; the second embodies new trends in the culinary world. Our walks brings the two together, creating the narrative that melds a look backwards at the traditions that underlie French cuisine while also looking forward at what’s new and cutting-edge today in the world of food in Paris.”

Flavours of Paris costs from €548 (based on two sharing a standard double room) and includes:

•    An overnight stay for two including breakfast at Hotel La Trémoille
•    Two glasses of Champagne in the hotel’s Louis Bar
•    Two stylish l’en-K de Caviar© packs (  from Maison Kaviare
•    Context Travel’s Baguette to Bistro walking seminar

The offer is subject to availability and valid until 28 February 2012.
