From the moment you arrive, the experience is extraordinary. You enter the Opera through the artists' entrance and not the main entrance. And there is a maze of corridors available to you: elevators, steps, stairs. You discover the backstages of this Parisian institution, the hidden face of the public. You finally open a last door and come across the market garden crops that have been installed on four terraces of this unique place, over approximately 2,500 m2. Salads, tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini, green beans, eggplants, peppers, basil, thyme, hop plants…: around a hundred varieties of early vegetables. These fruits, vegetables, flowers and aromatic herbs are pampered throughout the year by favoring agroecology with associations of crops and by not using any chemical fertilizers.
It is one of the Market Gardeners, Creator of this magnificent project, who will guide you throughout the visit. He will guide you in the vegetable garden, explain what products to harvest but also give you culinary advice as well in associations of tastes, recipes and cooking methods. You will discover the 3 secrets of a good dish: a good product, a good cooking and a good sauce!
As the vegetable garden harvests are intended for employees of the Opera, the market gardeners are fully attentive to their needs and astonishing vegetables can be found in the vegetable garden, especially old vegetables. A few restaurants in the neighborhood also benefit from the precious harvest. The visit then follows naturally to lunch in one of these restaurants. You will therefore sit at the table to taste the true taste of Paris in the convivial spirit of the Parisian bistro. A visit that nourishes the mind and body that will delight all audiences.

But do you know his story? When it was invented, the bicycle did not really look like its current form. It was in 1818 that the draisienne or also called velocipede appeared in Germany; 20 years later in Scotland, the pedals arrive; then the Michaudine in France, with its front wheel 1 meter in diameter! Several different shapes will emerge with the aim of increasing speed while providing stability and comfort. It was not until 1900 to discover the Hirondelle: the birth of the modern bicycle which was also the first means of transport for police officers. Today, the bike continues to evolve with the materials used to make it ever more aesthetic, strong, light and fas.
If beauty and strength of style are constant concerns for Maison Tamboite Paris, it is because each of its bikes, each time a unique creation, must bring together the components of a very complex alchemy: refinement, fluidity, purity of forms, respect for an aesthetic heritage that is a source of inspiration, but also modernity and consideration of technical needs, without unnecessary affectation.

GREETS makes you discover the passion of Maison Tamboite by entering their Parisian universe, in the heart of the city. Creators of made-to-measure bicycles, these enthusiasts will bring them to you from their workshop, which is closed to the public.
