126 Reviews

  • Location: Paris, France
  • Duration: Varies (approx.)
  • Tour code: 3234COOKING
Meet a local chef and learn how to cook a three-course Parisian banquet in a private apartment, right in the heart of Paris! Numbers for this small-group Paris cooking class are limited to a maximum of 8 people, ensuring you'll receive personalized attention from your knowledgeable French cuisine and food expert.
You can also choose to take a guided tour of the local markets in Paris, a unique opportunity to meet local butchers, bakers, and farmers selling vegetables from their gardens. On the market tour you will learn how to find and select the highest-quality ingredients and how to barter to get the best price. Along the way you will purchase fresh ingredients for your lunch before returning to the kitchen. Then it’s time to start cooking!

Alternatively you can skip the market tour and dive straight into this Paris cooking class. Whether you're a cooking enthusiast or a novice, this half-day Paris cooking class is a true hands-on experience: you will prepare a delicious lunch - including entree, main course and dessert - from beginning to end. Best of all, when you return home, you can wow friends and family with your Parisian recipes and cooking skills.

And at the end of your lesson your reward is the delicious lunch you have prepared accompanied by a glass of well-earned wine.

The company was delightful, exploring the market was fun and interesting, the food was delicious, the recipes doable and innovative, the chef--Fred--charming and informative. All in all, a great experience.

This was a wonderful and tasty experience!! Marthe walked us through the market as she bought what we needed for our meal. She gave us time to stop at different stands and browse/buy things. The cooking portion of the day was back at her apartment. She did an excellent job of walking us through what we needed to do and let us actually do the cooking. Very hands-on! And oh my goodness - the resulting meal was DELICIOUS! She also sent us the recipes via email after the class, so we didn't have to worry about taking notes. This is a must-do!
