My cooking class with Marthe in Montparnasse was amazing! The morning started with a espresso and chat, and then a walk to the market. Marthe then showed me how to cook three lovely dishes, two of which I have cooked since. It was just me in the class, which I was a bit worried about at first, but soon I realised how lucky I was to have a private class. The class was the highlight of my Paris trip, thank you.
My family and I thoroughly enjoyed this cooking class and the market tour in the morning. Although it was pricey, it was a very memorable day and a nice way to spend part of a day in the home of a local Parisian. Our chef, Miriam, was very nice, patient and encouraging to our class of beginning students. I will recommend this class to my friends.
We had a blast on the cooking class and actually got interviewed by a dutch magazine doing a story on "Meeting The French" Our hostess Martha was an outstanding source of information and the recipes that we cooked were challenging but simple.
WONDERFUL experience. Marthe was so kind and what a cooking experience. The trip to the market was eye opening as Marthe explained everything. Then back to the apartment for our prep and the cookjing of our three course meal. Learned a great deal from Marthe and woluld recommend anyone wantiung to learn a little more about French cooking to take the class. We had only 6 people so it worked out thate everyone participated in the prep and cooking.
plan on going back.
I had a blast! The chef was so helpful and made me feel so comfortable during the class. Her apartment was warm and inviting. Perfect Parisian experience. She also let us have a lot of hands on experience which made all the more fun! Food was delicious and at the end she gave us extra recipes and a couple of good inexpensive names of restaurants to try.
This was an excellent way to get to know a french chef in her own apartment and she provided great tuition and a lovely atmosphere, good conversation and a fabulous lunch.
A charming encounter! Unintimidating approach to cooking, lovely apartment, pleasant conversations about food and opera.
Warm and welcoming hostess. A highlight of our Parisian experience!
The market trip was fun and interesting. Myriam gave some good cooking tips. It was an excellent meal.
We were lucky enough to enjoy our class alone with our 'chef'. It was a wonderful introduction to a few French dishes and spending the time with Marta was a real treat. We have recreated the dishes at home and were enjoyed be all.
We had a wonderful experience. Chef Myriam was very patient and worked with our skills as well as taught us new techniques. The market was very enjoyable and added flavour to our experience. The meal we prepared was mouth-watering delicious! Can't wait to attempt to repeat it at home. For anyone who enjoys cooking, I would highly recommend this experience.
Sensational - I was in gourmet heaven! A highlight of my trip to Paris which I will recommend to everyone as a MUST!!! I was lucky enough to be in a class of only 3 - our teacher was wonderful and welcoming and the food we prepared and ate was truly amazing. Don't go to Paris without attending this wonderful cooking class.
This was fantastic, we loved going to the markets, our chef was fantastic, lovely and helpful and made the whole day informative and enjoyable, we had a great group to work with, I highly recommend doing this class!
This was wonderful. Miriam's eggplant confit recipe was worth the trip to France. Both she and her mother were wonderful as were the young French couple who took the class with us. We got to take the metro to do the shopping at the open air market which was very interesting. Miriam's apartment was wonderful. Getting to be in this old building with its excellent courtyard was fascinating. A remarkable experience and worth every penny! It was perfect in every respect.
This cooking class was amazing. Fred was very knowledgeable. His cooking class took us to the market where he gave us invaluable information on how to select products. We then returned to his beautiful flat setup specifically for cooking and made some of the most tasty dishes I have ever had. I will definitely make these dishes back in the states.
