What You Can Expect

Small-Group French Cooking Class in Paris

Cooking Class in Paris and Market tour

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.

Great time. Fred is a great instructor. Taught out group some simple techniques we had never seen that will make cooking easier and better in the future. Also gave us a lot of great tips and best practices. In the end, we made a 3 course meal that we sat down for and was delicious. I would do it again as he always uses different recipes from his 25 year career in the restaurant industry in Paris.

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!

This class, taught by Frederic, was absolutely the best tour I have ever booked with Viator. And I have done quite a few! Only word to describe the whole experience was AMAZING! If there was a higher rating than 5 stars, I would definitely assign it. After the class, Frederic emailed us the step by step recipe for the incredible meal we prepared.

Lovely morning shopping with our chef and cooking the produce for a delicious lunch. Dominique generously shared his cooking tips, recipes, knowledge of local produce, as well as some recommendations for food-shopping and restaurants in the area we were staying.

One of our favorite activities of our trip, we had a great time learning and tasting French cuisine. Our host was Frederic, who took us to the local market and picked out fresh ingredients what we liked to customize the meal we made with another couple. The meal itself was delicious, although we probably could have done a little more participating. Would highly recommend!

This class was even better than I expected. We were a small group, learned about how the french shop at the open markets and plan their meals. I learned many useful techniques and recipes and met some wonderful people.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

A must do especially if you love to cook. Learned a few new techniques along the way. Marthe was an absolute delight and made us all feel so comfortable in her home. Highly recommend adding on the going to market with the chef. Not only are you getting ingredients but you can shop for clothing, etc, along the way. Highlight of our trip!
