Year 1: Food Tours in Toulouse by the numbers

November marks the one-year anniversary of Taste of Toulouse! I’m so proud of how far we’ve come in only a year – thanks, in large part, to the support of friends, family, and food-lovers all over the world. As part of the birthday celebration, I wanted to give you an inside look at some of the numbers from our first year of food tours in Toulouse: where our guests were from, how much wine we drank, and a few of my other favorite stats.

Year 1: Food tours in Toulouse by the numbers. 440 guests from 21 different countries. 201 bottles of wine consumed. 42 cents of every euro in ticket sales spent at local food businesses. 130 5-star reviews on TripAdvisor, Google, Airbnb, and Facebook. #1 question asked: "Is it ok to eat the rind on that cheese?" Favorite TripAdvisor review: "Like a Netflix food series, but in real life."

Some of the facts that didn’t make the infographic:

  • 94 mornings spent on tour at the Marché Victor Hugo
  • 212 baguettes eaten (not just by me!)
  • 144 chocolatines eaten by my groups:
  • # times Taste of Toulouse was mentioned in the press – online or in print: 17!!!! (including BBC Good Food magazine, the Daily Beast, and – shout out to the Toulouse Office of Tourism for helping to make this possible!)
  • #2 question asked: “How do French people keep from getting fat?”
