Queenie's Food Tours lets you release your inner Julia Childs with a French Food Tour and Lunch that introduces you to some of Melbourne's best French culinary locations and food producers.
They will then go to a secret gem of Melbourne that has been baking croissants that Francophiles have flocked to for the past 30 years to get croissants!
They also visit one of Australia's finest bread makers for a coffee and find out the secrets to French bread making. Before lunch you can taste some pâté and have the opportunity to buy some for your own kitchen, along with other fine French ingredients.
Lunch will be at one of Melbourne's finest French bistros and will include two courses and a glass of wine. The owner will entertain you with his French know-how and stories of France.
Save some room, however, for after lunch, you will be able to lovingly consume chocolates made by one of Australia's best chocolatiers and a tour of their kitchen. Before heading back to Southern Cross Station, stop off and taste some fine French cheeses and a little more shopping. Why not!
