We had an excellent experience with chef Fred who shared lots of tips with us and made sure everyone participated in the preparation of our meal. Highly recommended.

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.

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!

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.

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!

This was an excellent class with chef Dominique. He has a casual but highly professional approach and quickly put us at ease even though we had little experience of cooking. We produced a great meal for lunch.

We had a great time in our class. My husband and I ended up being the only ones there so we got a private lesson! We learned a lot in a little bit of time and we actually still use what we learned. I can't wait to do this again!

I loved every bit of this cooking class with Frederic. I would most certainly recommend his class as being one to take for a French cooking experience.

This cooking class with Marthe was just what we were looking for to connect with Paris, it's food, and it's people. We have a small group ( 3 couples) of Americans cooking and sharing in an apartment of a true French chef. Marthe was wonderful and well prepared for us. Fun for all skill levels.

BEST cooking class I have ever done. Fred was wonderful. He took us by bus to his local market where we walked through all the magnificent produce. There we discussed what we would like to eat for lunch and Fred bought market food to compliment our requests. HIGHLY RECOMMEND. EXCELLENT

It was a great experience and a very good cooking class, just for me probably because of low season. We went to the local market, just across the street from Frederiques place, and purchased the ingredients, The availability of different products of all kinds was impressive, and a very local experience. I totally recommend not just the cooking class, but contracting the market visit as well. It was an excellent meal, I learned a lot, and had very nice and interesting conversation with Frederick. Very nice person and of course a very professional and good chef. Five stars all the way!!!!

it was a very lovely experience. Chef Dominique was quite welcoming and happy to have us. We were quite lucky that our class only had 3 people so we probably got to do a bit more than just watch. Im thinking with a full class of 8, maybe thats all you get to do. Loved the market! It is only on Wed and Sat so I would recommend those days although Chef has a different market to attend if the open market isnt right outside his door on those days. The food was delicious and very medieval French in that we used dried fruits and such. Really a nice, nice weekend. A good time.

This was amazing and I highly recommend it for everyone, especially those who love to cook. Even if you don't like to cook, still take this class. It is fun and interactive. You get to hang out in a real French house and cook with a "local". It was one of our favorite things we did while in Paris.

Chef Dominique offers a rare and wonderful experience, combining the day-to-day life of a Parisian, shopping in an open air market, with his cooking talents. We laughed, wore matching aprons, while we helped prepare an amazing meal. Do this with your friends, spouse and/or children. It will be a memory for lifetime!

My wife and I had an amazing time with Chef Frederic in his studio kitchen. He was willing to do a Monday class for the two of us on a last minute request. I found the techniques very useful but the conversation made this activity truly unique.
