“Great Cheese Day”
Reviewed 6 February 2014

This was a wonderful, educational, tasty experience. It was a chance to learn about cheese and get a real inside look at a local cheese store and meet the Fromagier. I never realized there is
so much to tasting cheese even down to the time of year and what grass the animal would have
been eating. It has changed the way I buy cheese now that I am home. Debbi loves what
she does and her enthusiasm is abundant.

“Best Paris Cheese Tour”
Reviewed 5 February 2014

We were so fortunate to have Debbi take us on a tour of an incredible cheese shop and to spend time with her. Her knowledge of and passion for cheese is extensive and it was incredible to spend time with Debbi and her partner at her apartment. Our two children (10 and 15) absolutely loved it and we all agreed it was the highlight of our trip. We will definitely contact Domaines & Terroirs again on our next visit.

“Foodie? Don't miss this informative, authentic, delicious experience!”
Reviewed 5 February 2014

A fabulous educational tour led by Debbie encompassing Fromagerie Laurent Dubois in
Boulevard Saint-Germain and Fromagerie Quatrehomme, Rue du Sevres both having received top honours for their cheese, the Meilleur Ouvrier de France.
We were given an interesting and knowledgeable talk outside these shops and sampled some of the goodies within. She taught us about cheese production, the correct layout in a shop and the different types of cheeses and their characteristics.
We decided between the group which cheeses we would like to take for later and then, to top it off, we went to her apartment for a delicious cheese tasting lunch with the cheeses we had just bought, others she had in store for us as well as charcuterie, salad bread and wine.
A real highlight of our trip and an absolute must for any foodies out there! Thank you Debbie

“Wonderful day of cheese -- a must-do if you are in Paris.”
Reviewed 4 February 2014

I was given the gift of a one-day session with Domaines et Terroirs, in which we met at a cafe to receive an infdormative overview of some of the salient points of producing cheese, then went to a fromagerie to meet with a fromageur and visit the cave downstairs. We tasted cheeses, spoke with the staff at the fromagerie, and then decided on which cheeses we would like to investigate further. Debbi and JP made a selection based on our preferences, and we then went back to Debbi's lovely apartment in Passy for an afternoon of cheese tasting. It was a fabulous experience. We began with a glass of champagne and then repaired to the dining room for an afternoon of cheese, bread and wine -- all carefully selected and impeccably presented. This is an experience not to be missed -- especially for cheese lovers.

“A Fabulous Experience!”
Reviewed 4 February 2014 via mobile

The time spent with Debbi on the Cheese Plate Lunch Tour was amazing. We visited two different Fromageries, Debbie spoke about different cheeses and we chose cheeses from each store. Then back to her apartment where she had more goodies waiting for us - wine, charcuterie, salad, bread - all delicious. Definitely a must do if you are a foodie or just want to be better informed about French cheese! I'll be doing it again when other friends come to visit me in Paris!!
