When you cross the threshold of this store, Les Secrets du Goût (“the secrets of taste”) on Rue de l’Oratoire, your senses will come alive : sight, smell, and taste (with free samples), all courtesy of the enthusiastic, expert owner.
Olives, Provencal garlic, olive oils, organic balsamic vinegars, flavored vinegars, sauces and condiments including a top-quality pesto, tapenades, a variety of mustards, teas and herbal infusions. Add to that redolent mixture even more spices and peppers from a variety of origins and a whole world of flavor unfolds across the shop, waiting to be discovered by you.
There are sweet treats, too : jams with evocative French names translating to things like “kisses jam,” “witch jam,” “butt-scratcher,” flower-flavored candies with the taste of rose, jasmine, or violet, and much more.
And, to turn this taste experience into a true meal, there are champagnes – from classic to gold-flake –, good wines, and limoncellos.
