Highlights / General details
We meet outside the metro station and head straight to the local farmers’ food market, to pick quality seasonal produce and explore local shops – cheese store, bakery, food and vegetable, butcher etc. We talk to merchants and pick what we will be cooking.
We then head back (after a final stop by the wine store) into the sophisticated private apartment of your Parisian host for the day, get introduced to the menu du jour, cooking utensils, and protocol. We start cooking – there is a meal to make.
The cooking class is very hands-on – you are not there to watch, everyone cooks the whole meal. The host is an advanced recreational chef and food buff – sharing family tips and cooking traditions passed on from generation to generation.
After work comes the reward – we all sit down together for a meal that includes spectacular French dishes you will be able to reproduce at home to impress your friends and family.
Later, after the class, the host sends you the recipe of whatever you ended up choosing to cook that day.
